March 2022 – After splitting the 2020-21 season between playing in Europe and for the AHL’s Belleville Senators, Douglas signed on with the Toronto Marlies for the 2021-22 campaign. The hulking forward has taken full advantage of the opportunity, cementing himself as a key part of the Marlies’ lineup and scoring at a half-point per game pace.

His solid performance in his first season with the Marlies and intriguing physical profile were enough for the Leafs to lock him up with a two-year entry level contract that will begin in the 2022-23 season. Douglas is still a project but could eventually grow into a viable fourth line center option in the NHL. Nick Richard

October 2020 – Douglas passed through the 2020 NHL Draft without a selection, making him a free agent.  Jokke Nevalainen
