  • 1995 – CHL Sportsman of the Year Award

Daze suffered severe back problems during his career, which limited him to only 19 games in the 2003–04 season. Even after three herniated discs surgeries in a five-year span, pain was still a problem in Dazé’s back when he attempted to return to the Blackhawks in 2005–06. He quietly left professional hockey after playing a single period in the season opener for the Blackhawks that season.

Contrary to rumors, Daze will not be trying another comeback. (Link 1) (Link 2)
