Dougie Has Emerged
Dougie Hamilton has quickly become one of the biggest fan favorite players for the Carolina Hurricanes after being with the team for only a little more than a year.
Whether it’s his connection with the fans, his friendship with Stormy, or the pig who shares his name, Dougie is beloved in Raleigh.
