Dawson’s father, Jamie, suited up for four WHL seasons (1992-96) with the Tacoma and Kelowna Rockets, posting 41 points and 514 penalty minutes in 156 career games followed by two seasons with the Tacoma Sabercats (WCHL) as an 11th round selection in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft of the New York Rangers.
