Douglas "Doug" Andrew Lidster (born October 18, 1960 in Kamloops, British Columbia) is a retired Canadian defenceman who played in the NHL. An offensive-minded rearguard, Lidster was known as an excellent power play quarterback who constantly helped his team's transition game with his ability to carry the puck out of his own zone.

Lidster was selected by the Vancouver Canucks in the 7th round of the 1980 NHL Entry Draft (133rd overall). Doug played four years of college hockey while attending Colorado College before playing for Team Canada in the 1984 Olympics. He made his NHL debut with the Canucks near the end of the 1983–84 season, and became a reliable presence on the Vancouver blue line until he was traded to the New York Rangers prior to the 1993–94 NHL season. There, he moved into more of a depth role, but still helped guide the 1994 Rangers to their first Stanley Cup in 54 years, scoring two goals in the Finals as they defeated the Canucks. After a brief stint with the St. Louis Blues, he was reacquired by the Rangers in 1995–96, and played three more seasons on Broadway before signing with the Dallas Stars in early 1999. There he won his second Stanley Cup, before retiring. He went into coaching, and served as head coach of the Saginaw Spirit in 2004–05.
