Former Red Wing Domink Hasek is ‘taking a break’ from hockey—for this season

This morning, former Red Wings goaltender Dominik Hasek told Dennik Sport’s Miroslav Horak that he is going to take this year off from playing hockey after receiving no “interesting offers” as a 46-year-old coming off a disappointing season with Spartak Moscow of the KHL.

However, as Dominik Hasek remains Dominik Hasek, he plans on sticking with hockey, seeing where his connection with goaltending can lead him, and preparing for a comeback…during the 2012-2013 season.

The full interview’s apparently only in the print edition of the magazine, but CTK reports that Hasek says that he feels just as good physically as he did during his last season (2007-2008) with the Red Wings.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
