from Tim Graham of The Athletic,
Otherworldly flexibility was only part of his mystique. A spindly 5-foot-11 and less than 170 pounds, he filled the net with his quickness, competitiveness and fearlessness.
“By now, Dom is 6-3 or 6-4 and 155 pounds!” Martin Biron, Hasek’s former teammate, said. “He gets taller and skinnier over the years.
“He has achieved legendary status, where stories are being told that aren’t true but people still believe. You don’t hear that about Patrick Roy or Marty Brodeur so much. But you hear all these stories about Dom because he was so unique and great.”
Larger than life, he relied upon every bit of his scrawny frame, every wit of research, every stitch of padding to deny his opponents. He would ditch his stick to cover the puck with his blocker hand. Forehead saves were on purpose.
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. … The American Hockey League’s Player Safety Committee today announced that Grand Rapids Griffins forward Dominik Shine has been suspended for two (2) games as a consequence of his actions in a game at Chicago on Jan. 29.
Shine will miss Grand Rapids’ games Tuesday (Jan. 31) at Milwaukee and Friday (Feb. 3) at Texas.
Sometimes I think Nedeljkovic thinks he's Dom. But there's only one "Dominator."
Best save ever...
I remember where I was when that happened. My roommate and I were jumping up and down, screaming like a bunch of fools. It was so glorious.
I remember standing up and shouting when I saw that.
Hahahah he beat Roy.
