Doug Buhr played for the Nor-West Caps and the Victoria Cougars of the BCJHL in 1968-69 before starring for three years with the University of British Columbia. In 1972-73, Buhr turned pro with the Springfield Kings of the AHL after signing a free agent contract with the NHL's Los Angeles Kings on October 2, 1972. In 71 games, he scored ten goals and 12 points. He was sent to the Portland Buckaroos of the WHL midway through the 1973-74 season.

In 1974-75, Buhr played the only six games of his NHL career with the Kansas City Scouts, where he managed two assists. The expansion club was going through many growing pains, winning few games. It was a tough situation for most of the players, including Buhr, who was unable to find a niche for himself on the struggling club. Other such notable players on that team included; veterans Simon Nolet and Denis Herron and Wilf Paiement.

Buhr continued to play pro hockey for another three years with the Trail Smoke Eaters of the WHL before retiring after the 1977-78 season.
