Dominik Hasek has been selected to join the 2014 Hockey Hall of Fame class.
No surprise there. Hasek was one of the best goaltenders of his time with 389 wins, a 2.20 GAA, and .922 save percentage in 735 career games. He won the Stanley Cup twice with Detroit and led the Buffalo Sabres to the finals in 1999. He also one the Vezina Trophy six times, which is the most of any goaltender since they changed the criteria for the award in 1981-82. Mon, Jun 23, 2014 03:20:00 PM

Dominik Hasek and Mike Modano top the new slate of eligible hall of fame inductees, while there is no shortage of great players in the hunt for one of hockey’s greatest honors.

The Dominator has won a whopping six Vezina Trophies as the league’s best goaltender, along with a Stanley Cup in 2002 and an Olympic Gold Medal in 1998. Modano is arguably the greatest American born player in NHL history, with 1,374 career points and a Stanley Cup to his name. Swedish superstar Peter Forsberg is a legend in Colorado, but he is no shoe-in for the HOF considering his injury trouble. The late Pat Burns, Eric Lindros, Paul Kariya and Rob Blake are still waiting for the call after being skipped over in the past.

Dominik Hasek will be inducted into the Buffalo Sabres Hall of Fame Saturday night.

There will be a ceremony for the former Sabres' star goalie prior to the Buffalo game against Tampa. Hasek was in town Friday and had a nice conversation with Sabres' coach Ted Nolan, whom he had a bit of falling out with during Nolan's first tenure as Buffalo coach. It should be a nice night in Buffalo.

Dominik Hasek has reportedly called it career after giving up hope of being able to land another NHL contract.

"It's very sad," Hasek told Czech daily Sport on Tuesday. "But there is nothing you can do. I realized that it's time to retire." The 47-year-old netminder was hoping to get a deal with an NHL team and begun training early, but he didn't get an offer during turbulent times with a potential lockout on the horizon. Hasek said it is "very unlikely" he would play ice hockey again, but he's retired twice before and came back so it wouldn't be surprising if he gave it another shot at some point.

Dominik Hasek worked out on the ice Thursday with HC Pardubice.

The 47-year-old netminder played for the Czech league club in 2009-10 prior to heading to the KHL for the 2010-11 campaign. However, he said that he is using his time there to prepare for a chance to return to the NHL. "The Dominator" is seeking a multi-year deal but that is probably unlikely to happen. If he does get a shot at a comeback then he might have to settle for a tryout.

At 47, Dominik Hasek will be making a comeback in the National Hockey League, according to his agent.

"He will play," Ritch Winter said. "There is no option. He will play and he will excel and he will do all of the things he can do. That’s his view of it. There’s one objective, and that’s it — he won’t fail." Hasek retired in 2008 after the Red Wings' Stanley Cup run in which he lost his starting goaltending job to Chris Osgood in the first round. He started 40 games that season, holding a save percentage of .902. He also played for the Red Wings from 2001-04, winning the Cup in 2002, and starred in Buffalo from 1992-2001. He is a six-time Vezina Trophy winner as the NHL's best goaltender and won the MVP award in 1997 and 1998. But neither the Wings nor the Sabres want him back. Could he be going to the Maple Leafs?

Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier confirmed reports that he was approached by Ritch Winter, the agent for Dominik Hasek, about the 47-year-old ex-Sabres stalwart making a return to the NHL in Buffalo.

Hasek, who last played in the NHL for Detroit in 2008, was out of hockey last season after playing in the KHL during the 2010-11 campaign. Regier said he and coach Lindy Ruff twice met with Hasek in the last month in First Niagara Center but told the team's former star goaltender they were going to stay with Ryan Miller and Jhonas Enroth in net.

Dominik Hasek reportedly wants to return to the NHL as a player, but we need to stress that this should all be taken with a grain of salt.

CBC's Elliotte Friedman had a newspaper articled translated to him from Zdenek Matejovsky of Czech station TV Nova. The article stated that Hasek was in North America and that Hasek said, "For sure, I know what I want...even my agent, he knows...but I'm not going to make any comments." This has been interpreted as an indication by some that Hasek is interested in playing in the NHL, but either way, this might not lead anywhere. Even if all that is true and Hasek really is interested in returning to the NHL, that doesn't mean that it will happen. He's 47 and will turn 48 in January.

Dominik Hasek wants to play one more season in Russia.

The 46-year-old netminder played for Spartak Moscow of the KHL this season and actually led the league in shutouts with seven. He wants to win the Cup in Russia and that's why he wants to get in one more season. There is no chance that he will return to the NHL, at least not at this time. Hasek is an ageless wonder and we wish him the best in his quest for glory in the KHL.

Spartak Moscow of the Kontinental Hockey League has inked Dominik Hasek to a one-year deal.

Although Hasek retired from the NHL following the conclusion of the 2007-08 season, he returned to hockey in 2009-10, playing for Pardubice HC in the Czech league. He had a 2.26 GAA and .921 save percentage and led them to the Czech League championship. We doubt he'll return to the NHL, but it looks the 45-year-old still has some gas left in the tank.

Dominik Hasek has backstopped HC Pardubice to the Czech League championship.

The 45-year-old goaltender is amazing. He was hoping to make the Czech Olympic team this year, but a thigh injury in October scuttled those chances. Pardubice won the best-of-seven final in four straight games, winning Game 4 in overtime 3-2. He may pull a Chris Chelios and keep on playing despite his advanced hockey years. We shall see.

Dominik Hasek's chances to play in the 2010 Olympics for the Czech Republic took a hit on the weekend as he suffered a thigh injury.

Hasek had been playing for HC Moeller in Pardubice in the Czech league and he suffered the injury which will keep him out of action for the next three-six weeks. He was one of 60 Czech players who were candidates for the Olympic team, but at age 44, it may be too much to ask for to recover in time as the Czechs must hand in their roster in December. Tomas Vokoun is the front runner at this time to start in goal for the Czech Republic.

Dominik Hasek is one of 60 players who are candidates for the Czech Republic's Olympic team.

Hasek will be 45-years-old when the Olympics start in Vancouver in 2010, but he still has a shot to make the Olympic team. He is currently playing for HC Moeller in Pardubice in the Czech league. This will be quite a story as Hasek was the star of the 1998 Olympics, shutting out the Russians 1-0 to claim the gold medal for the Czech Republic. He retired from the NHL in 2008 after a long and illustrious career.

Dominik Hasek has agreed to play for his former team, the HC Moeller Pardubice, in the Czech Republic.

Hasek played there as a 16-year-old in 1981, helping them to club championships in 1987 and 1989. He retired from the NHL in the summer of 2008.

Dominik Hasek has officially retired from the NHL.

"Today I'm feeling very happy and don't have any regrets," Hasek said. "Sixteen years is a long time in life that has unfortunately gone by too fast." Hasek retires as one of the NHL's most successful goaltenders. He won six Vezina Trophies and was the first goalie to ever win back-to-back Hart Trophies. Hasek retires with 389 wins, a 2.20 GAA, and a .922 save percentage in 735 career games.
