Dougie Hamilton had his first NHL fight in Wednesday's game versus Colorado.
He felt he was elbowed by Avalanche forward Gabriel Landeskog early in the third period, so he answered back with a high, hard check in the corner. The two of them dropped the gloves after that. "It's just hockey," said Hamilton. "I don't think fighting's a part of my game. I had a couple in junior, though it's been a while now. But I thought it was fun." Hamilton is having the best season of his young NHL career with eight goals, 26 points and 31 penalty minutes in 48 games. Jan 23 - 6:51 AM

Dougie Hamilton recorded a goal and an assist for the Bruins as part of Tuesday's 3-1 win over Dallas.

Hamilton's productive third NHL season had begun to hit a snag of late, as he entered the contest with just one point in his last 10, but this proves otherwise. With 28 points in 48 games, Hamilton is well on his way toward his first 40-point campaign. Gregory Campbell and Loui Ericsson also scored for Boston in the win.

Dougie Hamilton logged a season-low 16:56 of ice time in Thursday's 3-0 win over New Jersey.

He posted one shot and saw 1:45 of playing time on the power play. His defense partner, Zdeno Chara, played 21:31 in the contest, while the Bruins leaned on Dennis Seidenberg (24:20) and Adam McQuaid (23:35).
Jan 9 - 9:20 AM

Boston Bruins defenseman Dougie Hamilton is poised to produce big-time after the Christmas break.

Hamilton had two points during his first nine games this season, but he has 18 points in his past 26. He had a five-game pointless streak before scoring two goals and one assist against the Buffalo Sabres last Sunday. He'll get his share of opportunities on the Bruins' top pairing and with the power-play time he receives.

Dougie Hamilton picked up two assists in Saturday's win against Arizona.

Hamilton struggled in the Bruins' last game against San Jose (he was a minus-2), but bounced-back against the Coyotes. He was a plus-2 and had five shots on goal in 22:12 of game action. The 21-year-old has stepped up in the absence of Zdeno Chara.

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.
