It has been four years since Dominik Hašek last played in the NHL and it has been 13 years since the first time he retired. But according to a newspaper report in the Czech Republic, Hašek is currently negotiating a deal to return to the NHL next season.The report (via NHL.com) indicates that two possible landing spots for Hašek are the Detroit Red Wings and the Tampa Bay Lightning. However, Hašek sounds like he is currently negotiating with just a single club.
“We are working on [a new deal] but I don’t know the answer yet…I know where I would like to play, but I don’t want to talk about it. I think it’s better to keep it between the two sides involved…I am working hard almost every day. I am in great shape. And the other side knows that.”
The two-time Stanley Cup Champion has played in Europe since he last laced up the skates for the Red Wings during the 2007-08 season. And in the past year he has undertaken a number of different athletic endeavours including biking across Albania and auto racing.
