Dougie Hamilton the game-winning goal in Boston's 2-1 overtime win over the Winnipeg Jets.

Dougie Hamilton missed practice on Wednesday because of the flu.

The Bruins don't play again until Friday, so he has some to recover. Hamilton, who has 11 points in 20 games this season, should be consider day-to-day for the time being.

Dougie Hamilton had a rough game defensively Thursday against Montreal.

"In the three goals against, I was in the play with all those," said Hamilton, who finished Boston's 5-1 loss to Montreal with a minus-3 rating. "Three mistakes. I have to be better." Hamilton scored on the power play in the contest to open the scoring.

Dougie Hamilton notched the Bruins' only goal in their 5-1 loss to Montreal on Thursday night, the team's second loss in as many nights against Original Six rivals.

Hamilton has excelled on the offensive front this season, with four goals and 11 points in 18 games so far. The 21-year-old is on pace to blow past his career high of 25 points which he managed last year.

If there is a silver lining to the Zdeno Chara injury it is how definitively Dougie Hamilton has raised his game to fill the void on the Bruins' blueline.

Hamilton has been nothing short of brilliant since Chara went down six games ago registering eight points and a plus five plus/minus rating. He is playing with confidence and is beginning to look like the franchise defenseman the Bruins were expecting when they drafted him in the first round three seasons ago.

Dougie Hamilton came up big in Boston's first game without their captain Zdeno Chara.

Many expected the Bruins to fall apart without Chara, but Hamilton played a strong game in Saturday's win over Toronto. The young defenseman had one goal, three points and was a plus-two on the night. The only way the Bruins can survive Chara's four-six week absence is if Hamilton carries the defense on his shoulders.

Dougie Hamilton carried the Bruins on Saturday night, with three points in their 4-1 win against the Maple Leafs.

Hamilton had a goal and two helpers in 22:31, to give him five points in 10 games. This type of game couldn’t have come at a better time for Boston, which is without Zdeno Chara for at least a month. With a defense that is now in some disarray, coach Claude Julien needs to be able to gain trust in the core as Chara’s removal changes its entire composition. Carl Soderberg, David Krejci and Gregory Campbell picked up the other goals. Patrice Bergeron had two assists.

With Zdeno Chara out at least four-to-six weeks, it looks like the Boston Bruins will give Dennis Seidenberg and Dougie Hamilton the first crack at being the B's new top pairing.

Torey Krug and Adam McQuaid look to be the second pairing. For fantasy purposes, it might be most interesting to see how the setups work (four forwards and a defensemen or three F and two D?). One would expect Krug and Hamilton to reap the early rewards the most.

It appears as if Dougie Hamilton will be just fine and in the Boston lineup against Toronto Saturday.

He took a puck off the hand during Friday morning's practice and had to leave, but he seems to be good to go against the Maple Leafs. A good thing too as the Bruins can hardly afford to lose another first-line defenseman with both Zdeno Chara and Kevan Miller down.

The Bruins’ defensemen led the way in their 4-0 shutout of the Sabres on Saturday night.

Dougie Hamilton, Zdeno Chara and Torey Krug all scored in the victory. Hamilton also added an assist and finished a game-high plus-three. Though these were his first points of the season, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him improve upon his 25-point 2013-14 campaign. Carl Soderberg scored the final goal in the win as Chara led the way with seven shots on goal. Getting this kind of production from the backline will do wonders to open up a team’s offense.

The Boston Bruins are expecting Dougie Hamilton to take a big step forward this season.

Hamilton is coming into his third season in the NHL, and like many young players, he’s lacked consistency. Boston Bruins head coach Claude Julien certainly expects more from the 21-year-old. "When you’re young you’d like to think that you’re going to continue to improve, and I don’t think he’s reached his max or his peak yet," said Julien. "We’re happy with him because we understand where he is in his development, but we also project a little more out of him as he gets older, bigger, and better."
Oct 4 - 8:41 AM

Dougie Hamilton potted a goal and added an assist for the Bruins in their 3-1 win against the Red Wings on Saturday night.

Hamilton finished a plus-three on the night in 20:09 of ice time. He had seven goals and 25 points last year during the regular season and seven points in 12 playoff games and should continue to develop into an excellent offensive defenseman. Ville Leino and Brad Marchand (empty-netter) scored the other goals for Boston. Tuukka Rask made 14 of 15 saves, while Jeremy Smith sticked aside all eight shots he faced in the third period.
Sep 27 - 9:42 PM

A key player to watch in Bruins' training camp will be defenseman Dougie Hamilton.

After scoring seven goals and registering 25 points in 64 regular season games and seven points in 12 playoff contests, the 21-year-old rearguard could be on the verge of a breakout season. Hamilton is currently practising with a number of Boston veterans in informal practices and seems to be much more confident on and off the ice. Keep an eye on Hamilton as he could be poised for a big jump in production.
Sep 13 - 10:14 AM

Dougie Hamilton played some of the best hockey of his career in the playoffs this season.

Although the Bruins' campaign ended with disappointment, Hamilton was one of the few bright spots in the series against Montreal and in the post season overall. In 12 games he registered seven points and was plus one while playing very effectively alongside Zdeno Chara. "I thought it was a real coming out for Dougie [Hamilton]. He had a real – he made mistakes, don't get me wrong. But I think he had, by the end, a real good playoff," said Boston general manager Peter Chiarelli. "You saw the confidence, you saw something that Claude [Julien] has been working on with the defending. He still has areas to improve on there, but he is really defending with more strength. He's not always been good with the puck, but he had a really solid, real solid playoff. As did Torey [Krug] while we're talking about young defenseman. He played well too." Hamilton certainly is on the upswing.
