July 2023- While Douglas did not show a ton of offense with Tucson last year, he did bring toughness to the lineup. The hulking forward had eight goals and 14 points in 50 games with the Roadrunners, good for ninetieth in team scoring. He did have 119 PIM’s though, second on the squad in that category. If the Coyotes are looking for toughness in the lineup, Douglas could earn an opportunity during 2023-24. Keith Duggan

November 2022- Douglas has been dealt to Arizona for defenseman Conor Timmins. He had one assist in 13 games with the Toronto Marlies and will join Arizona’s AHL affiliate Tucson. Keith Duggan

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

June 2020 – Douglas didn’t get signed by the June first deadline. He re-enters the draft.  Jokke Nevalainen
