Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jason Dawe
Jason Dawe was selected 35th overall in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft by the Buffalo Sabres. Prior to making it to the NHL, he spent four seasons with the Peterborough Petes of the OHL. From 1989-93, he scored 169 goals and 168 assists in 241 games. In 1991-92, he achieved his first 100-point season with 53 goals and 55 assists in 66 games. Through 59 games in 1992-93, he posted career-highs with 58 goals, 68 assists, and 126 points, becoming the Petes' all-time leading scorer and the first Pete to reach 50 goals in less than 50 games, reaching the plateau in 48 games. Dawe was selected to the OHL First All-Star Team that year and he also led the league in scoring during the playoffs.

One of the biggest thrills for Dawe came in 1993 as a member of the gold medal winning team at the World Junior Championships. He also won a silver medal for Canada at the 1996 World Championships.

In 1993-94, he made his NHL debut, scoring six goals and seven assists in 32 games. Through 42 games in 1994-95, he tallied seven goals and four assists. Dawe scored a career-high 25 goals in 1995-96, and in 1996-97, he posted career-highs with 81 games, 26 assists, 48 points, and a plus-14 rating.

On March 24, 1998, Dawe was traded to the New York Islanders for Paul Kruse and Jason Holland. Midway through the 1998-99 season, he moved on to the Montreal Canadiens where he played in 37 games. He played in just three games in 1999-2000 with the New York Rangers. 2000-01 was spent with the Hartford Wolf Pack of the AHL.
