Dougie Hamilton registered an assist in a 5-4 loss to the San Jose Sharks on Monday.
Unfortunately Hamilton also had a minus-two rating, making the night a mixed bag for many fantasy owners. He has six goals and 15 points in 41 contests as it continues to look like this season will be a step down from his 2014-15 campaign when he recorded 42 points in 72 games with Boston.

Dougie Hamilton tallied a power-play goal in the Flames’ 4-0 win against the Avalanche on Saturday night.

Hamilton did not have the smoothest of beginnings with his new squad, but he’s fit in better lately. That being said, his offensive production is still way down from where we expected: six goals, 14 points in 38 games. Josh Jooris (goal, assist), Matt Stajan and Mikael Backlund got the other goals.

Dougie Hamilton will take on the Boston Bruins for the first time on Friday.

Calgary acquired Hamilton from Boston over the summer. At the time it was seen as a big win for the Flames, but Hamilton has struggled this season with six points and a minus-six rating in 25 contests. That being said, his early hardships might have been a result of him adjusting to his new team as lately he has been better.

Dougie Hamilton's game may be finally coming around.

The highly touted 22-year-old was traded by the Bruins in the off-season to Calgary and it was thought he would only improve off his 10 goal, 42 point effort of last season but it has been anything but smooth sailing for the defenseman. He has only two goals and five points in 23 games but has been a plus-seven in his last nine games to push his rating to minus-four. "He was skating well, making good decisions, using his body," Bob Hartley said after Friday's game. "When Dougie is skating and being physical and moving the puck, he’s an elite defenseman in this league." Hamilton had six shots on goal in the loss to Arizona so his offensive game is getting there.

Dougie Hamilton has recorded just one point in his last six games.

Hamilton has five points in 21 contests, which is a lackluster point-per-game pace after he recorded 42 points in 2014-15. At least he's plus-four over his last four games, which has raised his rating this season to minus-five.

After a rough start to the season, Dougie Hamilton might be turning a corner.

Hamilton has three points and a plus-two rating in his last six games, in contrast to his single point and minus-11 rating in his first nine contests. Part of that early slump might have come from Hamilton adjusting to a new team for the first time in his NHL career, but of course the Flames as a whole struggled early on. Either way, is a great offensive defenseman and while his overall numbers this season still aren't flattering, he should go on to have a strong campaign.

Defenseman Dougie Hamilton has been struggling in the early going.

The defenseman was acquired from the Bruins in the off-season for a first and a couple of second round picks in what was thought to be a steal for the Flames. But Hamilton is off to a shaky start with only one goal and a minus-six rating in seven games. Coach Bob Hartley has paired him on the third unit with Ladislav Smid and hopefully the defensive minded blueliner with help Hamilton simplify his game. Hamilton is a talented blueliner and you should trade for him in your fantasy pool if some disgruntled owner is willing to deal him.

Dougie Hamilton scored his first goal for the Calgary Flames on Saturday.

The talented defenseman was acquired from Boston in the off-season and potted his first of the season against the Canucks in helping the Flames to a 3-1 win. Hamilton had 10 goals and 42 points last season and a jump to 45-50 points is not out of the question. He could be a top-15 defenseman in fantasy hockey this season.

Dougie Hamilton got off on the right foot with Flames coach Bob Hartley.

"I don't know if you watched the skating tests at the end, but I believe he was the fastest of his group," Hartley said. "We told you we got younger, we got bigger and we got faster. Well ... here's the proof right there — he was the fastest player in the skating test." The Flames acquired Hamilton from the Boston Bruins over the summer. In doing so, Calgary added more depth to an already impressive blueline. Hamilton had 10 goals and 42 points in 72 contests last season and he's capable of reaching those milestones again.

The Calgary Flames aren't totally sure how their defense will work out with a healthy Mark Giordano (plus Ladislav Smid) and a newly added Dougie Hamilton, but head coach Bob Hartley seems excited.

"We’re not looking to distribute the icetime evenly — our slogan is still, ‘earned, never given.’ But, at the same time, it’s an unbelievable addition to the team," Hartley told the Calgary Sun. "Dougie makes us younger, makes us bigger, makes us faster and makes us better. There’s no doubt about this."

Dougie Hamilton doesn't see himself having difficulty dealing with the pressure that will come with his new six-year, $34.5 million deal.

"I think the expectations are going to be higher but I think in Boston there’s a lot of scrutiny from fans and expectations for me when I came in, being a top-10 pick," said Hamilton. "I think I handled that fine and think it'll be the same here, just have fun and play my game. You can’t really put too much pressure on yourself, better to just do your best and try to be as consistent as you can." Hamilton also thinks he still hasn't reached his ceiling. He recorded 10 goals and 42 points in 2014-15 and he should be able to finish in that range again next season.

Restricted free-agent Dougie Hamilton reportedly turned down a six-year, $33 million deal from the Boston Bruins.
