LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles County district attorney's office is determining whether to file charges based on date-rape allegations against Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty by a woman he met in a seaside bar.

District attorney's spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons said Wednesday that the case is under review and a decision is expected by week's end.

Doughty's attorney, Craig Renetzky, confirmed Tuesday that police in Hermosa Beach were investigating sexual assault allegations against Doughty.

Renetzky says the investigation has been under way for a number of months. He would give no further details.

Phone and email messages left for a police spokesman and with a Kings spokesman weren't immediately returned.

Doughty had two goals and four assists during the team's victory over the New Jersey Devils in the Stanley Cup finals.
