Playing career 2013–present

Douglas Jonathan Hamilton (born June 17, 1993) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for the Calgary Flames of the National Hockey League (NHL). Hamilton was selected by the Boston Bruins in the first round, ninth overall, of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, playing for the team for three seasons prior to his trade to Calgary in the 2015 off-season.

Playing career[edit]

Amateur[edit]

Hamilton attended Crestwood Preparatory College for grade 9 and Governor Simcoe Secondary School for grades 10–12.[1] He played minor midget for the St. Catharines Falcons of the OMHA's South Central AAA League and was selected by his hometown Niagara IceDogs in the second round, 27th overall, of the 2009 OHL Priority Selection.

Professional[edit]

On December 8, 2011, Hamilton signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Boston Bruins.[2]

During the 2012–13 season, on January 19, 2013, Hamilton made his NHL debut for the Bruins in a 3–1 victory against the New York Rangers, [3] and two games later, on January 23, Hamilton scored his first NHL point for an assist in an overtime win against the Rangers in Madison Square Garden.[4] On February 15, Hamilton scored his first career NHL goal against Ryan Miller of the Buffalo Sabres.[5] Hamilton made his Stanley Cup playoff debut on May 3, replacing defenceman Andrew Ference, who was serving a one-game suspension for his illegal hit on Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mikhail Grabovski. On April 25, Hamilton was named the 44th Annual NESN 7th Player recipient, an award given to the Bruin who most exceeded all expectations that season, as voted by the team's fans.[6]

On June 26, 2015, during the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, as an impending restricted free agent on July 1 and with the Bruins facing salary cap constraints, Hamilton was traded to the Calgary Flames in exchange for a first-round draft pick (Zachary Senyshyn) and two second-round picks, all in the 2015 Draft.[7] Four days later, on June 30, Hamilton signed a six-year, $34.5 million contract with Calgary at an average annual value of $5.75 million through to the 2020–21 season.
