Douglas MacLean "Andy" Anderson[1] (October 20, 1927 – January 8, 1998) was a professional ice hockey centre in the National Hockey League (NHL) for two playoff games.

Playing career[edit]

Doug Anderson played two playoff games for the Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey League during the 1953 playoffs. He scored no points and had no penalty minutes during those two games. He qualified to be engraved on the Stanley Cup, but his name was left off, since he did not play regularly with Montreal. He spent most of his career playing for the Victoria Cougars of the WHL. He retired from hockey after the 1962–63 WHL season.

Personal life[edit]

Doug Anderson, who had married Barbara Gayle Webster in 1953, devoted the rest of his life to raising his three children and spending time with his family. Doug died in January 8, 1998. Due to his commitment to athletes getting a good education, a memorial bursary was set up in his name and memory at the University of Victoria. His death date was confirmed with a newspaper obituary in Victoria.
