On disait qu'il avait tous les atouts pour réussir dans le hockey : la technique, la vitesse, le tir et l'intelligence de jeu.
Il n'est jamais passé professionnel, malgré cette déclaration de Conn Smythe, le coach des Toronto Maple Leafs : ”Laissez-moi vous parler de Doug Everett. C'est un des plus grands espoirs que j'ai jamais vu, et nous aimerions l'avoir aux Maple Leafs.” Les Boston Bruins et les New York Rangers se sont aussi intéressés à lui.
Il a joué pour Concord St.Paul’s, Colby College, Dartmouth College, Boston University et North Conway Granites. Champion olympique 1932.
Au lieu de devenir pro, il est devenu un homme d'affaires important. Il a intégré les assurances Morrill & Everett à Concord.
Il a été directeur de la New Hampshire Savings Bank et de la Concord National Bank, président-fondateur de la Concord Regional Development Corp., directeur du Concord Planning Board, etc.
L'Everett Arena à Concord a été baptisée en son honneur peu après sa construction en 1965.
Intronisé au Hall of Fame du hockey américain.
