More than 70 local players are nominated for the first annual Hasek’s Heroes WNY High School Hockey Awards with categories including Unsung Hero, Player of the Year, and Team of the Year.
Buffalo Sabres Alumni will help present awards to the winners. These awards have been established to recognize female and male student athletes who have represented their high schools playing at the Varsity Club or Federation level during the 2018 – 2019 Season.
A non-profit founded in 2001 by Sabres legend Dominik Hasek, the mission of Hasek’s Heroes is to provide WNY children in need the foundations of athletic, academic and character development within a fun and rewarding hockey-centered program.
“I am extremely pleased to be able to create the Dominik Hasek Youth Hockey League that will assist children in the city of Buffalo to learn the game of ice hockey. Buffalo has been very good to my family and me, and I want to be able to give something back to the community that will be recognizable for many years to come. The creation of this unique hockey program will give many children an opportunity to participate in a sport that otherwise they probably wouldn’t be able to play.” —Dominik Hasek
Proceeds from the event will go towards programming and hockey scholarships for Hasek’s Heroes participants.
