Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Doug Lewis
Left-winger Douglas Lewis played three games for the Montreal Canadiens in 1946-47. He was a fine skater who could check efficiently and make plays in the offensive zone. Most of his success came in the minors, especially the AHL.

The Winnipeg native played junior in the MJHL with the Kenora Thistles and the Edmonton Athletic Club. He turned pro with the AHL's Springfield Indians in 1941-42 and notched 25 assists in 56 games. The next year he was a solid two way forward on the Buffalo Bisons before joining the navy. Lewis played a year each with the Winnipeg and Cornwallis Navy then rejoined the Bisons in 1944-45.

In addition to his brief exposure to the NHL, Lewis was a stalwart in the Buffalo line up through the late 40s. He reached the 20-goal mark three out of four seasons and played tenaciously all over the ice despite his 155lb. frame. He split the 1950-51 season between the PCHL and EHL then competed for the senior Halifax Saints before retiring in 1952.
