Doug Galbraith came from Montreal, Quebec and played for the Verdun Maple Leafs “Junior A” team before enrolling at Michigan in the fall of 1965.  Playing center and left wing for Coach Al Renfrew from 1966-1967 to 1968-1969 seasons, he played in seventy-nine career games, scoring fifty goals and forty-nine assists for a career total of ninety-nine points.  He was the team’s leading scorer during his junior year.  He only had twenty career penalties.  Michigan won fifty-three games and lost only twenty-eight during his career.

His most memorable experience at Michigan was listening to Coach Renfrew’s comments prior to the start of games: “They were great, short, and to the point.”  His most important goals were the tying and winning goals he scored against Denver in Ann Arbor.  Nicknamed “Hot Rod”, his awards at Michigan included being named to the All-Star teams for the RPI Tournaments, the Great Lakes Invitational Tournament, and to the All-Big Ten Team.  Doug Galbraith graduated from the School of Education in 1969.
