Jason was well known in Connecticut hockey circles. After graduating from The Avon Old Farms School in 1989, he devoted his life to hockey in Connecticut. Jason was dedicated to advocating, developing and touching the lives of numerous parents and players at all levels of the sport from youth hockey, high school, prep school, college and the National Hockey League. Jason's passion was hockey, and his favorite expression was, "Everybody Rides."
Jason Pagni passed away suddenly on January 31, 2014 at the age of 43, leaving a loving wife and two young children. This game is intended to acknowledge Jason's legacy, and to gather the hockey community in support of his family. Additionally, it is expected that there will be a separate auction at the game, featuring numerous items from current professional hockey players who were touched by Jason with all proceeds going to the Pagni Family.
