Doug Baldwin
Doug Baldwin
Defenseman
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 175
Shoots: Left
Born: Nov 2, 1922
Birthplace: Winnipeg, MB, Canada
Acquired: Traded to Detroit by Toronto with Ray Powell for Gerry Brown on September 21, 1946.
Doug Baldwin won an Allan Cup while serving in the Canadian Navy during the Second World War, but had his NHL aspirations set back by poor timing. Baldwin's Quebec Aces won the Allan Cup in 1944, with the wiry defender scoring a point a game to lead the way.

Following the war he was signed by the Toronto Maple Leafs but spent only 15 games with the team before an emergency appendectomy forced him out of the lineup. He played the rest of the year in the AHL with the Pittsburgh Hornets.

Baldwin had short stints with Chicago (five games) and Detroit (four games) in the NHL over the next two years before beginning a successful minor-league career that lasted until 1959. He was twice a USHL all-star and later became player-coach of Toledo.
