Douglas Frederick Wilson (born July 5, 1957 in Ottawa, Ontario) is the General Manager of the San Jose Sharks and a former Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman. After playing junior hockey for the Ottawa 67's in the Ontario Hockey Association, Wilson was drafted 6th overall in the 1977 NHL Entry Draft. He then played 14 seasons with the Chicago Black Hawks and two years for the San Jose Sharks in the National Hockey League. He was the first captain in Sharks history, serving two years before retiring after the 1992–93 season.

A first round draft choice (sixth overall) by the Blackhawks in 1977 after a stellar junior career with the Ottawa 67s, Wilson played 14 seasons in Chicago and still ranks as the club's highest scoring defenceman in points (779 — fifth overall), goals (225 — 12th overall) and assists (554 — third overall). Wilson ranks fifth all-time in games played (938) for Chicago. In addition, he led all Blackhawks defencemen in scoring for 10 consecutive seasons (1980–81 through 1990–91) and captured the 1982 James Norris Memorial Trophy, symbolic of the League's top defenceman, when he tallied 39 goals and 85 points — still Blackhawks single-season records for goals and points for a defenceman.

He was selected to eight NHL All-Star Games (seven with Chicago and one with San Jose) and while with Chicago, Wilson was named as an NHL First Team All-Star in 1982 and twice was named as an NHL Second Team All-Star (1985 and 1990).
