Is 19 Year Old Drew Doughty dating Taylor Swift?

The Royal Half prides itself on serious hockey journalism rather than celebrity gossip. But it’s hard to ignore this breaking story.

Drew Doughty’s best score may not be on the ice.

I use Statcounter so that I can get a sense of where all 6 of my readers are coming from. And one of the bonuses is that you can see what Google searches people have made to end up at your blog. Over the last 2 weeks, I have received an alarming amount of searches based upon the dating habits of 19 Year Old Drew Doughty and previously unknown to me country superstar Taylor Swift.

These were all unique IP addresses, so there seems to be quite a number of people out there searching for an answer to this pressing question. I’ve looked around on the internet to see if there is an answer, but apparently TMZ doesn’t seem to care about the Los Angeles Kings and the dating habits of its rookies.

If this is true… then Doughty should totally get Rookie of the Year.

Anyone out there see Taylor and Drew out on town together? If so, send your anonymous tips here. If Drew Doughty is getting chicks like Taylor Swift, can you imagine the scene when these 3 Kings rookies hit up the Manhattan Beach bar scene after a game?

Oh yeah, these 3 must be getting a TON of action.
