Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Doug Friedman
Left-winger Doug Friedman played a few games in the NHL during the late 1990s. He was a hard-nosed competitor who could forecheck and look after his teammates. Most of Friedman's time as a pro was spent in the AHL. The native of Cape Elizabeth, Maine played four years at Boston University. After a decent freshman year in 1990-91, the Quebec Nordiques in the Entry Draft chose him 222nd overall. He signed to play with the Cornwall Aces of the AHL then moved on to the Hershey Bears. He inked a deal with the Edmonton Oilers in July 1997 then played 16 games the following season.

Friedman enjoyed a solid year with the AHL's Hamilton Bulldogs in 1997-98 before the Nashville Predators in the Expansion Draft claimed him. He played two games in the NHL but spent most of the 1998-99 season with the Milwaukee Admirals of the IHL. Friedman signed as a free agent with the Rangers in July 1999.
