The six-foot-eight, 249-pound Douglas has eight goals and 19 assists for 27 points in 49 games this sea with the AHL’s Toronto Marlies.

The winger has also suited up with the Belleville Senator and has nine goals and 31 points in 60 career AHL games.

He would finish out his junior career with the Spitfires, collecting 72 goals and 141 points over 166 games in Windsor.
