Jeff Jiampetti

October 22, 2015
Jammer needs help with expenses after surgery. If you have played any recreational hockey in the Denver Metro area for the past 10 years, you probably have crossed paths with Jeff Jiampetti (“Jammer”) on the ice at some point. Whether it was Tuesday night pick-up, pond tourneys, DAWG Nation events or him sandbagging in the “C” league with the boys at the Westminster Promenade, two things hav…

DAWG Nation Loses a Good One:Craig Moilanen

October 1, 2015
Over the last two years I was able to get to know a very special young man.  Craig Moilanen was a son, brother, husband and father who left us way too young.  Craig fought an amazing battle against leukemia and did virtually everything he could to fight off this terrible disease.  This one is very heartbreaking as Craig leaves behind a wife (Amy) and two young children. It was…

All in the Family

September 1, 2015
DAWG Nation Hockey Foundation began in 2011 but has always been a family affair.  Over the years DAWGs teams have included brothers, fathers and sons and even husbands and wives.  I’ve been lucky to be part of that group as my brother (Nigel) has been by my side as a DAWG from the beginning.  From thrill of lifting the Cup to the locker room camaraderie it’s what makes a team spe…

People Care

June 1, 2015
DAWG Nation Makes a Difference! DAWG Nation makes a difference because DAWG Nation hands out checks, huge checks, to those less fortunate than those of us who have not experienced a sudden loss of health. And, when it happens, it makes a huge difference in people’s lives. I know, not because I have received a check, but because my twenty-three year old son did. Knowing People Care. The…

Old DAWGs Roster

May 10, 2015
At DAWG Nation we are all about “Giving Back” but sometimes we like to take a little for ourselves. The DAWG family is made up of folks from all walks of life but I’m not sure if there is a better group than the fellas that make up the Old DAWGs roster. The Old DAWGs are an over 40 squad that plays in the SDOHL at the Old Foothills rink in Lakewood. The number one goal of this group is to h…

Annual Colorado Christian University exhibition game

April 25, 2015
On March 3rd we had our annual exhibition game with the great kids from Colorado Christian University. This one was held before the Avs/Penguins game at the Pepsi Center and I was pretty excited to lace em’ up where the big boys skate! However, two days before the big game my wife, Cindy, had a conversation with Johnny Plover (pictured below). Johnny had hit a rough patch and asked Cindy i…

DAWG Nation 2015

March 18, 2015
2015 has started off as a very busy year for DAWG Nation. Amongst our many adventures was the Pabst Pond Hockey Tourney in Silverthorne, Colorado. This annual tourney is the region’s largest outdoor tourney and one of the best run events I’ve ever been part of. David Janowiec and his company (The Recess Factory) run this one and are absolute pros! This year, David asked DAWG Nation to be…

Milan Hejduk

February 21, 2015
DAWG Nation has allowed me to meet many professional athletes. Many are extremely generous and willing to step up and help where they can. This generosity has most definitely aided DAWG Nation and has been instrumental in our growth over the past four years. But I’ve never met anyone quite like Milan Hejduk. Milan was a gifted player that possessed the knack for scoring goals, and that w…

DAWG Nation 4th Anniversary

January 28, 2015
It’s January 1st, 2015 and we at DAWG Nation are celebrating our fourth anniversary! In our short existence we have achieved some incredible milestones and touched many, many lives. One of those lives is Andy Barnard. Andy has an incredible story and it was first discovered by our very own Mike “Sully” Sullivan. Sully was perusing Facebook when he happened across a note from a young man fro…

Holiday Boulder Lights Parade

December 16, 2014
There’s not much better than a Christmas parade on cool, crisp December evening. It’s even better if your family is there with you. It’s even better when you can be in the parade. And it can’t be beat if there is a Zamboni and ice cold PBR beer involved!! That’s exactly how I kicked off the 2014 holiday season when the DAWGs were invited to be part of the Pabst Colorado Pond Hockey crew …
