Dominik Hasek's Youth Hockey League, Inc. (dba Hasek's Heroes) provides economically disadvantaged youth in Western New York the opportunity to play the game of hockey. In 2001, Dominik Hasek, winner of two Stanley cups, one Olympic Gold Medal, six Vezina Trophies, and two NHL MVP awards, established Hasek's Heroes to give back to the Buffalo community by helping children receive access to ice time, equipment, and professional instruction.
With over 1,000 children participating in the on-ice programs, Hasek's Heroes continues to be a unique and enriching opportunity for the youth participants in the Western New York community. In addition to offering traditional hockey development programs, Hasek's Heroes has partnered with several leading non-profit organizations, including the Boys and Girls Club of Western New York, Cradle Beach, King Center Charter School, and Journey's End of Western New York, to introduce more children to hockey.
Hasek's Heroes has been fortunate to receive generous financial support from Dominik Hasek, the Buffalo Sabres, USA Hockey and several other dedicated entities and individuals in Western New York. Our organization has grown significantly since beginning in 2001 and with such growth comes more costs and the need for resources. More ice time, equipment, and instructors are needed to meet the high demand of children wanting to experience the joy and excitement of skating and playing hockey.
During the holiday season, we hope that you can show your support with a donation to Hasek's Heroes - an organization that proves Hockey Is For Everyone.
