HERMOSA BEACH, Calif. - Police continue to investigate date rape allegations against Los Angeles Kings defenceman Drew Doughty stemming from an alleged encounter with a woman at a Southern California seaside bar.

Doughty's lawyer, Craig Renetzky, says Hermosa Beach police were investigating the woman's sexual assault allegations against Doughty, and said the District Attorney's office is expected to decide this week whether to file charges.

Renetzky says the investigation into the alleged incident has been ongoing for a number of months but would give no further details.

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

Doughty is among the Kings' highest paid players after signing a new contract earlier in the season.

The 22-year-old from London, Ont., had two goals and four assists during the team's recent victory over New Jersey in the Stanley Cup finals.
