Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Dougie Hamilton
Douglas Hamilton, better known as Dougie, was born on June 17, 1993 in Toronto, Ontario. Hamilton played minor hockey for the St. Catharines Falcons of the OMHA's South Central AAA League and was selected by the Niagara Ice Dogs in the second round of the 2009 OHL Priority Draft.

Hamilton would excel at the junior level for the IceDogs. He was selected ninth overall in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft by the Boston Bruins and in just 50 games in 2011-12 season he would record 72 points.

Hamilton would return to Niagara for the 2012-13 as the NHL attempted to solve their labour dispute. Once again, Hamilton would perform admirably. In 32 games he would register 41 points and earn a spot at the Bruins training camp upon resolution of the lockout.

Few expected Hamilton to crack the Bruins lineup, but the young defenceman made the leap directly from the OHL and spent the entire shortened NHL season in Boston. In 42 games for the Bruins Hamilton tallied five goals and 11 assists. He would also get his first taste of post-season play, suiting up for seven Bruin's playoff games.

After not being able to come to terms with a contract extension with the Boston Bruins, Hamilton would be traded to the Calgary Flames for a first round draft pick and two second round draft picks.

Hamilton would set new career-highs in goals and points during the 2015-16 season. Appearing in all 82 games for the Flames, he notched 12 goals and 43 points.

On the international stage Hamilton represented Canada at the 2012 World Junior Championship where he helped his homeland to the bronze medal. He also helped Canada to a fourth place finish at the 2014 World Championship.
