Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Doug Volmar
Right-winger Doug Volmar played briefly with the Detroit Red Wings and LA Kings in the 60s and 70s. He was a fine goal scorer who enjoyed most of his success in college and the minors.

Born in Cleveland, Ohio. Volmar spent three years at Michigan State where he was a first team WCHA all-star in 1966. He then joined the US national team and participated in the 1968 Grenoble Olympics. The Detroit prospect exploded on to the minor pro scene with 63 goals for the Columbus Checkers and selection as the IHL's top rookie. Over the next three years he recalled periodically to the Wings and led the AHL with 42 goals in 1970-71.

In June, 1972 Volmar was claimed by the Kings in the Intra League Draft and played 21 games for his new club. He then returned to the minors and played a few games for the WHA's San Diego Mariners before retiring in 1975.
