Boston Bruins Defenseman Dougie Hamilton’s Grade School Yearbook Photo

Blythwood Elementary School, Toronto, ON, Canada A.B. I love seeing these old school yearbook entries of current NHL players because 100% of the time they wrote as a kid that they wanted to be an NHL player. Hockey is one of those sports that you need to start at an extremely early age (skating by 2 years-old) to usually have a chance at being any good. To be a future NHL’er, you...

The Bruins May Need To Get Creative To Re-Sign Jarome Iginla

from Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe, This is how the Bruins locked up Iginla to a one-year contract with a $1.8 million cap hit. They promised Iginla $4.2 million in bonuses for a possible payday of $6 million. So far, Iginla has been well worth the investment. The drawback, as the Bruins always knew, is how it will affect next year’s books. The Bruins are projected...

Bruins D-man spot up for grabs before postseason

With seven games remaining, the only real lineup spot up for playoff grabs with the Boston Bruins is one of the six places on the B’s defenseman corps. When the Bruins dealt for Andrej Meszaros at the beginning of March, they brought on board a veteran seventh defenseman to compete for one of the top six spots along with Zdeno Chara, Johnny Boychuk and the four young blueliners...

Dougie Hamilton Absolutely Rocks Jeff Skinner With Open-Ice Hit (GIF)

Dougie Hamilton taught TD Garden and more specifically, Jeff Skinner, how to Dougie on Saturday afternoon. The young defenseman delivered the biggest hit of his career, crushing the Carolina Hurricanes forward with a clean open-ice hit during the third period. After being a healthy scratch earlier in the week, it’s safe to say the two-game absence rejuvenated Hamilton. Check out...

Dougie Hamilton Responds Well To Recent Healthy Scratches

BOSTON — Bruins defenseman Dougie Hamilton is in an odd position for a player of his age, skill level and draft position. That’s made for some bumps along the road in his first two seasons as a pro. Hamilton came to Boston as a top-10 draft pick after the B’s took him ninth overall in the 2012 NHL entry draft. In most cases, a top-10 pick like that is going to a bad team and...

B’s Beat: Jordan Caron & Dougie Hamilton As The Batman & Robin….Kind Of (PHOTO)

Jordan Caron is not the 13th best forward on the Bruins…he really is “The Batman”. Even though Caron has been more Riddler or Joker thus far in his NHL career. Dougie Hamilton is not the young, puck moving defenseman of the B’s….his real identity is “Robin”.  He should give the tights to Caron because Dougie is more super hero than super zero (Caron).   What a 3 hours...

Hamming It Up: Dougie Hamilton Joins Top Pairing With Chara

It’s not often that a second year defenseman ends up on the top pairing for a cup contending team, but Dougie Hamilton (1 G, 2 A, 3 SOG, +2, 2 PIM) broke that mold and earned a place along side Zdeno Chara on the Bs top pairing for a few games in a row now and the results have been very positive at both ends of the ice. When asked about his new weapon on the blue line Bs head...

The Gingah Ninja Strikes. FINISH THEM! Bruins Win!

Dougie Hamilton has gotten a lot of **** from Bruins fans this season. I always have a problem when people want to get rid of a young player, especially a young player still in development. Unfortunately sports is becoming a "what have you done for me today" type of mentality. If a guy doesn't mature into what his expectation is in a few years, he's a bust. It happens...

Boston Bruins Regain Pre-Olympic Form in 6-3 Win Over Rangers

It took the Boston Bruins about seven periods to shake off the rust of the three week long Olympic break.  It took multiple point efforts from six Bruins' players to get back to the team's winning ways.  And it took a performance reminiscent of the Olympic hockey tournament from a bronze medal winning goalie to preserve a victory for the Bruins.
