He played junior hockey for the Edmonton Canadians from 1945 to 1947 and then played senior hockey for the Edmonton Flyers from 1947 to 1951. The Flyers won the Allan Cup in 1948. Anderson was the leading scorer in the final series, with one goal and six assists.
Anderson then joined the Victoria Cougars in 1951-52.
Doug Anderson played two playoff games for the Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey League during the 1953 playoffs. He scored no points and had no penalty minutes during those two games. He qualified to be engraved on the Stanley Cup, but his name was left off, since he did not play regularly with Montreal.
After playing eight games for the Buffalo Bisons in 1953-54 Anderson rejoined the Cougars and played for them until they moved to become the San Francisco Seals in 1961. Rather than also move to San Francisco, Anderson joined the Portland Buckaroos and retired in 1963.
