Hockey DNA runs deep in Aspen's Doremus family

The hockey goal that has stood watch over the Doremus family driveway in Aspen for the past 20 years has pretty much seen it all. It has been subjected to innumerable hours of being pelted by pucks, courtesy of hundreds of shots per day and countless games of driveway hockey by five ultra-competitive brothers and a host of their associates. The goal declined to comment for this story, but the rest of the Doremus family fondly recalled their Aspen upbringing and hockey’s growing role in Colorado’s high country.
