Doug Allan Hicks (born May 28, 1955 in Cold Lake, Alberta) was a professional defenceman who had a reputation as an "iron man" early in his NHL career, missing only one game his first three seasons in the league with the Minnesota North Stars. He also played for the Chicago Black Hawks, Edmonton Oilers and Washington Capitals and retired having played 561 NHL games.

He played junior hockey with the Flin Flon Bombers from 1971-74, Hicks was drafted in the first round, 6th overall, by the Minnesota North Stars.

He was picked by the Edmonton Oilers in the 1979 NHL Expansion Draft and was traded to the Washington Capitals two and a half seasons later.

Hicks retired in 1983 and became the coach of the St. Albert Saints of the Alberta Junior Hockey League. But he missed playing, and went to Europe to play until 1988 when he finally did retire.
