A surprise “no coincidences” moment

September 3, 2022
Patrick and I were on our way to Park Range Ranch for a powerful weekend of fly fishing with some of the Paralympic athletes. On the way up we decided to make a quick pit stop to quench our thirst. We pulled into a place called the Stockman Bar in Walden and settled in a booth. When the waitress (Jenny) came over she took our order and asked what brought us in. I shared that my brother was ho…

A Red Tail Hawk Feather

August 31, 2022
An incredible honor today as Rick and Riley Alire presented me with a Red Tail hawk feather. The father/son duo are Native Americans with roots to the Navajo and Apache tribes and are extremely proud of their important background. This morning they humbled me to the core with this amazing gesture. Riley shared that the feather signifies leadership, bravery, heart, honor and respect as he tied…

“Gateway to the West” trip

August 30, 2022
Much of our growth has been a product of connecting with NHLers (past and present) that provide us with instant credibility and notoriety. As we build our St Louis brand it’s important to for us to also connect with leaders in the St Louis hockey community. One of those leaders is Pat Maroon, a three time Stanley Cup champion and a St Louis native. Yesterday afternoon I was in a …

The Number 34

August 28, 2022
It was quite a day in Belleville, Illinois as the St Louis Dawgs hosted an amazing Cornhole event and lifted up yet another family! 10 year old Mason Venegoni is young goalie that recently underwent surgery to remove a brain tumor. The surgery was a difficult but successful one and this little goaltender is now on the road to recovery! Now the “no coincidences” part! Former St Louis…

Kindness is contagious, pass it on!

August 27, 2022
It’s already been quite a week and it continues to get better as I board a plane to the ”Gateway to the West”! Generosity and kindness has been on full display all week and it will continue through the weekend! The week started with an incredible donation of a 15 seat Ford Transit van, that was followed up with the donation of a custom DAWG wrap for the van, a surprise $20k grant landed on my…

Coop/Evan – No Coincidences

August 13, 2022
It’s been a while since I posted a Cooper “Coop” Tippett update, and even longer since I’ve done a “no coincidences” post. So how about a two for one?! First off, Coop is progressing really well and is continuing on his road to recovery! His activity is still limited, but he’s walking and getting stronger every day. All great news! Now the no coincidences part. I played a little golf today wi…

Fishing with a Legend!

August 12, 2022
Yet again I had to take one for the team! This time I was forced to spend a couple of days of the outdoor life in Walden with a fella named Joe. This is no ordinary Joe, #19 has always been one of my all time favorites and hearing his riveting life stories first hand made me appreciate him even more. Fly fishing, four wheeling, shooting, amazing meals, story telling, all with the incredible bac…

The Hockey World Loses a Beautiful Soul

Diagnosed with brain cancer, Benny fought valiantly but sadly lost his battle on Wednesday, August 10rh.

It’s a Great Day to be a Bronco

August 8, 2022
April 6, 2018 changed the lives of 29 families, broke the collective hearts of a community and united the the entire hockey world. That fateful day also changed the path of my own life and has continued to bless me with friendships, memories and countless magical moments. In November of 2018 I was given a very special gift by Jacob Wassermann and Ryan Straschnitzki, a gift that becomes more spe…

Congrats Bedsey!

August 7, 2022
A huge congrats to my pal who is on quite the roll right now! Capping off a fantastic weekend on the Saskatchewan prairie with the SJHL Hall of Fame induction of the one and only Jared Bednar. As usual, Jared’s words were chosen well and delivered with sincerity and emotion. My favorite part was talking to those that have known Jared the longest. His family, his classmates, his coaches, his tea…

Hockey dreams coming true!!! Drinking out of the hockey Holy Grail with Jared “Bedsey”‘Bednar doing it the honors while I’m wearing a Humboldt jersey signed the crash survivors. Seriously, does it get any better than that?!! Livin’ the dream!  

Busy day changing lives!

July 30, 2022
It was an exhausting one, but yesterday once again showed me the best in humanity. A 6 am wake up call, a hour drive to Butfalo Run to play the Tscherpel Strong golf tourney as we raised dough for my buddy Dave Tscherpel. Who, by the way, is kicking cancer’s ass!! Lots of laughs, and some “so-so” golf thrown in, it was a fantastic and memorable time. Then it was the hour drive back for a quick …
