BC Hockey 100 Great Moments: Doug Lidster
Tuesday, January 15, 2019

Doug Lidster was born in Kamloops, British Columbia, and was drafted by the Vancouver Canucks in the seventh round of the 1980 National Hockey League (NHL) draft.  Lidster played 10 seasons in Vancouver, and served as an alternate captain for many years, before being traded to the New York Rangers in 1993.  The Rangers beat the Canucks in the Stanley Cup Finals of 1994, the same season Lidster was traded to them. 

Lidster was a part of Team Canada on a few occasions, and won two (2) silver medals at the World Championship. 

Following his retirement as a player in 1999, he moved to coaching, and has worked as an assistant coach for the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League (AHL), and his former team the Vancouver Canucks.  Lidster also helped the Canadian Women win Olympic gold in 2010, when he was an assistant coach on the team. 

Doug Lidster was inducted into the BC Hockey Hall of Fame in 2003.
