Douglas "Doug" Risebrough (pronounced RYES-brow) (born January 29, 1954, in Guelph, Ontario) is the former General Manager for the Minnesota Wild in the National Hockey League (NHL). He was currently in his tenth season with the Wild and 31st season in the NHL. In his 31 years in the NHL, he has been a player, coach and executive, and has been involved with the Stanley Cup Playoffs 25 times.
Risebrough was the Montreal Canadiens’ first pick (7th overall) in the 1974 NHL Amateur Draft. In eight seasons with the Canadiens, Risebrough helped Montreal capture four consecutive Stanley Cup titles (1976–77-78-79). He was traded to the Calgary Flames on September 11, 1982, and spent the next five years with the Flames. During his tenure with Calgary, Risebrough skated as the Flames co-captain then tri-captain for four seasons, with both Lanny McDonald and Jim Peplinski. In 1986, as a Tri-Captain, Doug Risebrough led the Flames to his fifth Stanley Cup Finals as a player. They eventually lost to the Montreal Canadiens.
Throughout his career, Risebrough was an agitator, often assigned to pester the opponents' top players. In one famous chapter of the Battle of Alberta, Risebrough, while playing with the Flames fought with Marty McSorley. Risebrough lost the fight, but ended up with McSorley's jersey, which he shredded with his skates.
