Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Doug Robinson
Doug Robinson was born August 27, 1940 in St. Catherines, Ontario. The father of Rob Robinson who played for the St. Louis Blues in 1991-92, Doug Robinson was a Memorial Cup champion with the St. Catherines Teepees of the Ontario Hockey Association Junior "A" Hockey League in 1960 before joining the Eastern Professional Hockey League's Sault Ste. Marie Thunderbirds during the 1960-61 season.

After his stop in Sault Ste. Marie, Robinson joined the American Hockey League's Buffalo Bisons where he was an AHL Second Team All-Star in 1963 and the recipient of the Dudley "Red" Garrett Memorial Award as the AHL's Top Rookie.

In 1964, Doug Robinson made his NHL debut with the Chicago Black Hawks, appearing in four playoff games. The 1964-65 season marked the regular season debut for Robinson, as he played in 40 games with Chicago before being traded to the New York Rangers.

Robinson split the 1965-66 season with the Rangers and the Baltimore Clippers of the AHL before playing in only one game with the Rangers during the 1966-67 season.

The Los Angeles Kings claimed Robinson from the Rangers in the 1967 Expansion Draft and managed to play in 34 games with the Kings that season setting a career high in goals with nine. Even though he played in 34 games with the Kings, Robinson spent some time with Kings AHL affiliate in Springfield.

The 1968-69 season was much of the same for the St. Catherines native as once again he split his time with Los Angeles and Springfield. Robinson's 1969-70 season was a set back as he was unable to warrant playing time with Los Angeles, spending his entire season as a member of the Springfield Kings. Even though he spent the entire season in Springfield, Robinson was an AHL First Team All-Star.

Following a full year in the AHL with Springfield, Doug Robinson returned to the Los Angeles line up in 1970-71 where he had a career year with the Kings scoring 15 goals and adding 13 assists for 28 points.

Even after a career year in the NHL, Robinson's days with the Kings where numbered as he was traded to Montreal early into the 1971-72 season. Unable to earn a roster spot with the Canadiens, Robinson who had begun the season with the Seattle Totems of the Western Hockey League joined the AHL's Nova Scotia Voyageurs with whom he ended his career.

In 250 NHL regular season and playoff games, Doug Robinson scored 48 goals and added 70 assists for 118 career points.
