Giving Back to Keith Horstman

Help with medical expenses.

Keith has been playing hockey most of his life, and is a fixture on Tuesday and Thursday nights in the SDOHL, which is an over-40 league at the Foothills Ice Arena. Whether playing in the more competitive Tuesday Select League, or more socially on Thursday nights, Keith has a great demeanor, and is a terrific teammate.

After never suffering a serious injury in his long career on the ice, eight months ago in the social league, he went awkwardly into the boards with another player, and separated his shoulder. Since then, he has separated the same shoulder two more times, requiring several visits to the emergency room, and finally a surgery to fix the problem.

Keith is just the kind of player the DNHF had in mind when they started two years ago. Not only is he a very good hockey player, you’ll never meet a nicer guy on or off the ice. During our annual Stand Up For Dawg Nation night at the Comedy Works, we were very proud to present Keith with our 18th recipient check to help with the costs of the ER visits and other procedures.

We wish him well, and look forward to seeing him soon, back in the SDOHL, and playing the game he loves.
