DAWG Nation is thrilled to bring back a bigger and better DAWG Bowl than ever before. We are excited to be able to unleash a full bag of giving back! With a record 58 teams and 1,000 players, you can expect great hockey, meaningful moments, and most importantly giving back. DAWG Bowl XI embarks on another decade-long journey of giving back and focusing on those in need. You can expect tons of NHL players, “off the charts” auctions, food (TBD), contests, smiles, fist bumps, and of course a few tears! Please join us as we witness amazing generosity at every turn and lift up those in need while celebrating the game we all love! Spectators are welcome to come enjoy the games that will include competition across nine divisio

Mainline West Top Dawgs
Many past and present NHL players will once again be participating in the tourney’s top division. Former Avs John Mitchell, Jan Hejda, Aaron McKenzie, and former NHL’er David Clarkson, and will lead the Mainline West TOP DAWGS. Thanks to David Carle, we are thrilled to add several of the current Denver University Pioneers to this year’s star-studded lineup.
Coach Carle will be adding his talent to this year’s squad as the coach in the quest to unseat Denver Concrete from their three-year reign. The Top Dawgs have never won the DAWG Bowl, losing the last two years in the finals.
Troy Terry and the TAG (The Ahbe Group) Team have been training and are primed for an upset. Of course, Denver Concrete, two time defending champion, will be quietly waiting. There is no shortage of top talent across the platinum division.
Sled Hockey Tournament
While we have honored sled hockey in the past with exhibition games, this year we are proud to offer a four-team tournament and declare a champion in this division.
The four teams competing this year are Colorado Sled Hockey, Warrior AVS, Buffalo Sled Vets, and the Vegas Golden Knights. This division will play a total of 7 games including a championship.
All games will take place in the east arena.

Survivor Game — Saturday 6/26 – 2:35 pm – East Rink— Don’t Miss It!
We are honored to bring back the Survivor Game for DAWG Bowl XI, the centerpiece of our DAWG Bowl. Everyone in the survivor game is just that, a SURVIVOR of a life-threatening illness or injury. Do you remember two of our recipients from last year from our captains’ challenge, Dave Carr and Tony Cozza? Well, they are back and looking forward to not only playing in the tournament but in the Survivor Game.
Another recent recipient, Dave Tscherpel, is fighting cancer and battling back to play in the Survivor Game. It is hard to put words into what this game means to those folks who have fought so hard to make it back to the ice. Join us Saturday in creating a crowd worthy of the courage and resilience they have shown. So get your rally towels ready for Saturday, June 26th at 2:35 pm.

SHAW Hockey Productions is Back!
We will have Shaw Hockey Productions back streaming even more games with play-by-play and color! We are so grateful for our partnership with Mike and Suzanne Shaw. They bring a whole new level of professionalism to our events and open up games to a much wider audience than we ever dreamt possible.
Working closely with the Shaws, we are currently planning on covering one game from every team as well as all platinum games, championship games, and the Survivor Game. The schedule for streaming is included in the schedule with the Game# highlighted yellow. Of course, it is subject to change as we work with SHAW to cover games.
Giving Back – SATURDAY, JUNE 26TH
Most importantly, we will be rallying around recipients and their families that will need our help. Folks we likely don’t even know right now are going to be blown away by the love and generosity that we get to create together!
Great day Marty and Mike! I played my 2nd competitive game last night. So blessed to be playing again and so thankful to DAWG Nation and everyone from DBX for all you have done for me!Dave Carr DBX recipient
You will remember from last year’s locker room talks that Dave shouldn’t even be alive after being hit head-on in a car accident. You and your teams made our generosity to these recipients possible, with over $130,000 towards recipients over the five days. This year, we will meet the needs of recipients who are unaware of the generosity and love of the hockey community coming their way!
Dawg Nation Hockey Foundation exists to aid those in the hockey community that can use a helping hand. Dawg Nation will be presenting several check presentations throughout the weekend to recipients and their families in need. We will be practicing social distancing during check presentations. Times and locations to be announced.
Be sure to be on hand to witness the essence of our organization as check presentations will be made throughout the event. You’ll see firsthand why one of our motto’s is “we make tough guys cry”.
