Jason Eric Dawe (born May 29, 1973) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player. Dawe was drafted in the second round, 35th overall, by the Buffalo Sabres in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft. Dawe played his junior hockey career with the Peterborough Petes of the Ontario Hockey League, where he compiled 337 points in 241 games and was part of the Petes' Memorial Cup finalist in 1993. During the same season, Dawe joined Team Canada for the 1993 World Junior Championships, where he scored six points in seven games on the way to earning a gold medal. He currently coaches youth hockey in Charlotte, North Carolina. Dawe was born in the Toronto suburb of North York, Ontario and grew up in Scarborough, Ontario, another Toronto suburb.
Dawe split the 1993-94 season between the Sabres and their AHL affiliate, the Rochester Americans, scoring 28 goals in 80 combined games. Following the lockout shortened 1994-95 season, Dawe made the jump to full-time NHL status. In 1995-96, Dawe enjoyed his finest statistical season, compiling 25 goals in 67 games.
Dawe played two more seasons with the Sabres, amassing 81 points in 149 games, before being traded to the New York Islanders near the 1998 trade deadline for left wing Paul Kruse and defenseman Jason Holland. Dawe went on to score just seven more goals in parts of four NHL seasons with the Islanders, Montreal Canadiens and New York Rangers.
During these final seasons in the NHL, Dawe also saw time in the minor leagues, playing for the Milwaukee Admirals of the IHL (1999–2000) and Hartford Wolfpack (1999–2002), Worcester IceCats (2002–2003), and a return stint with the Rochester Americans (2003–2004) of the AHL.
