Dougie Hamilton putting up some major points

Currently tied for 5th in the OHL in points at 9 GP 5 G 12 A 17 P.

Donīt shoot the messanger ... I have only seen him play once, so I donīt want to ascertain what his future is going to be. But I do recall from the Draft that scouts were equating him with Pietrangelo ... minus some offense plus some defense.

But if he keeps putting up these kind of points, one would think his prospect status will eventually be readjuisted to include high-end offensive ability, no?

It would be sick if he turned out like Pietrangelo. That guy is so good.

I think he's always been seen as an offensive defenseman. He put up nearly a point per game as a 17 year old defenseman in the OHL.

I think he projects to be like Pietrangelo, and could even end up better than that.

Well, during the draft they said comparisons were likened to Pronger, so I'm not surprised. I just didn't think his offensive skills would come around this early.

I still can't believe we got him at 9 to be honest. When that rumor that we traded the pick for Ryan Ellis came out I almost cried.

I thought he was going to be the best defenceman to come out of his draft. A lot of potential there. If he's handled properly Boston is going to have a real stud to become their next #1.

He's putting up a lot of points but I still don't think he's as offensively talented as Pietrangelo (The comparison he gets).

I haven't seen him enough to make that comparison. Personality-wise at least they seem so different. Dougie seems like such a happy go lucky kid and Pronger, well he's Chris Pronger.

I recall him being raw defensively with offense being his strong suit. He is a converted forward. I don't know I may be wrong.

My favorite prospect from the draft besides Larsson. For me, he's in between Coburn and Pietro. 40-50 points a season on the norm.

I don't know about that.

Dougie Hamilton

Draft Year
58 points 67 games 12 goals

1st Post Draft Year
17 points 9 games 5 goals

Alex Pietrangelo

Draft Year
53 points 60 games 13 goals

1st Post Draft Year
29 points 36 games 8 goals

I know it's still early in the season and he likely won't keep up the same pace, but if their junior numbers are any indication it looks like Dougie is trending upwards offensively. Really I think Dougie is more a biproduct of his very smart playstyle and because of that I think he'll put up great numbers offensively while being great defensively.

I'm not sure if he was supposed to be the best, but I do remember people saying he was insanely smart. His average in school was in the high 90's.

He wasn't projected to be the best -- I just personally think he'll be the best.

Not sure how you can say that all things considered.

Thats stats. Unless Dougie has significantly improved his offensive skills over a summer, I don't think he's as offensively talented as Pietrangelo. Pietrangelo sees the ice better and controls the game better. Dougie is just putting up a lot of points, doesn't mean he's on the same level. Pietrangelo never blew people away anyway with his production.

Who knows he could turn out better but Dougie Hamilton will be closer to a Seabrook than Pietrangelo IMO.

High-end comparison thrown around out there has been Rob Blake. A more reasonable comparison that's out there is Brent Burns.

There were never any real questions about Hamilton's offensive ability. It's his overall defensive ability that, in my opinion, will prevent him from becoming anything more than a second-pairing defenseman in the NHL.

I thought he would go top 5 on draft day so he was a big steal IMO for Boston. IMO he's going to be a 25 minute per night type of defensemen that can dictate the flow of the game.

His start has been great but the year after being drafted situation was totally different for both of these guys.

This kid is amazing, I wish he would have slipped a couple more spots in the draft

Best Defensive Defenceman
Brett Flemming, Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors (30) – finished third in votes in 2009-10
Erik Gudbranson, Kingston Frontenacs (22)
Dougie Hamilton, Niagara IceDogs (21)
17 years old and the coaches he plays against every game think he's the third best defensive defenseman in the conference, a mere one point behind Gudbranson who had been drafted 3rd overall as a defensive defenseman. If only the kid could play some defense.

Hamilton has shown us nothing compared to Pietrangelo.

I know that is hard to understand wheb looking at the stats, but as an ex season ticket holder, Pie was on a higher tier.

Pietrangelo controlled the whole game. Dougie plays within the flow.
