Dougie Hamilton – Scouting Report

Height: 6″4

Weight: 193lbs

Position: Defense

Team: Niagara (OHL)

Hamilton has NHL size, and if drafted into the right situation could see time in the NHL next season. He’s the perfect combination of size, speed, and skill that every NHL team dreams of having at the back-end.

Hamilton can be leaned on to play heavy minutes, as well as time on the power play. His defensive skills are solid but he probably needs another year or two to fully develop them. He’s another defensemen who isn’t afraid to mix it up on the offensive end, sporting a hard shot from the point and the skating ability to join a rush.
