Dominik Hasek Come Out of Retirment to Play in Czech Republic

The “Dominator,” arguably the NHL’s greatest and most decorated goaltender, is not done yet. The 44-year-old Dominik Hasek will come out of retirement once again, but not to play in the NHL. He will return to HC Moeller Pardubice, a Czech club for which he played several years prior to his NHL career, the Associated Press is reporting.

“I’m really glad I could sign a deal with this club,” Hasek said. “It’s a club where I spent the most years. I’ve never even thought I could play for any other club in the Czech Republic. I’m looking forward to the next season.”

In his 16-year NHL career, Hasek won two Stanley Cups with the Detroit Red Wings in 2002 and 2008, and nearly won another with the Buffalo Sabres in 1999. He is a six-time winner of the Vezina Trophy as the NHL’s top goaltender and two-time winner of the Hart Trophy for league MVP.

Here is a Sportscenter highlight video of some of the top plays from Hasek’s brilliant career:
