Dougie Hamilton’s Contributions

Dougie Hamilton had a great game tonight. Going up against his former team, I think it was important for Hamilton to have a solid game overall. Today, he provided his own contributions on both the offensive and defensive sides to his game.

Starting with the obvious point, he scored a goal tonight. He scored it on the power play and practically did it all himself. With that goal, he has tied John Carlson with the most goals scored by a defenseman at 12. While Carlson is miles ahead when it comes to overall points, Hamilton has steadily provided his own offensive production for the Hurricanes.

One moment outside of the goal that stood out to me was during the 2nd period when Hamilton stripped Johnny Gaudreau of the puck and created a 3-on-1 the other way. While it didn’t result in a goal, watching him set up that play was a thing of beauty and only shows how far he has come with this team.

As the season rolls along, Hamilton just keeps getting better. Whether it’s the big goal or the timely shot-block, he has a knack for leaving his mark on the game. With the steady production that Carolina continues to get, who knows how far he’ll go. One thing is for sure, he has found a home with the Carolina Hurricanes.
