Hasek A Possibility For Czech Olympic Team

from CTV Olympics,

Dominik Hasek and Jaromir Jagr headline the list of 60 players under consideration for the Czech Republic’s 2010 Olympic men’s hockey team.

Hasek, who came out of retirement this month, is one of eight goaltenders who will compete for a spot on the team. Florida Panthers netminder Tomas Vokoun, who beat Russia in the bronze medal game in 2006, is likely the leading candidate for the starting role.

The 44-year-old Hasek, who retired from the Detroit Red Wins in 2008, is making a comeback with Pardubice in the Czech Extraliga this year. In the season opening game, he stopped 33 of 34 shots in a 2-1 shootout loss.
