The love and enthusiasm for the game of ice hockey that is shared by all of the Stauber boys started back in 1967 when Del Stauber introduced his three eldest sons (John, James, and Dan), to the game of hockey at the Piedmont Heights rink in Duluth. It was not long before Del's youngest sons (Pete, Rob, and Bill) were also introduced to the game. As a founding father of the Piedmont program, Del developed a passion for hockey that quickly became instilled in all of his boys. That passion, and the life lessons that go along with it, are what eventually lead to his sons' success in high school hockey, collegiate hockey, professional hockey and into the business world of hockey.

Today, that strong family passion for the game has transcended down to the grandchildren of Del and Jean Stauber. Hockey has become a past time that they all share a strong love for and it is something that will bond them together forever. Of the eighteen grandchildren, eight of them have played or are still playing the game of hockey and five of them have worked or are still working at the retail business.
