This year we will have 42 teams battling it out on the ice to take home a Dawg Bowl Trophy and bragging rights. We have seven divisions with the Mainliine West Top Dawgs, consisting exclusively of current and ex-professional hockey players. The Top Dawgs are a must see with the likes of Paul Stastny, Kyle Quincey, Sean Zimmerman, Brett Clark and Darryl Bootland just to name a few. All games are open to the public and free of charge.

Our Survivor Game is the highlight of the entire tournament. This game is comprised of players that have “Survived” a life threatening injury or illness. Their stories are ones of struggle, courage and support. We do a special feature for each of them in our programs that tells their respective stories. The game this year is set for Saturday at 1:00 p.m. Summit County’s Dave Repsher will be dropping the ceremonial first puck as he will be on hand to inspire us all!
Players from Colorado Sled Hockey, including members of the 2017 National Champion Colorado Sled Hockey Association Avalanche team, will hold a special exhibition game at 2:30 pm on Saturday June 24th on the East rink immediately after the Survivor Game.
Members of the Top Dawgs hockey team will also participate in full sled hockey gear to experience a whole new hockey skill set and learn from the pros!
And once again we want to shout out our thanks to our Survivor Game sponsor, Ethos Financial Partners – thank you for another year of terrific support!
Dawg Nation Hockey Foundation exist to aid those in the hockey community that can use a helping hand.
