Dominik Hasek is a retired ice hockey goaltender and “Dominator” in the National Hockey League. Throughout his National Hockey League career, Hasek has sported time with the Chicago Blackhawks, Buffalo Sabres, Detroit Red Wings, and the Ottawa Senators.
Dominik Hasek first started playing in the NHL with the Chicago Blackhawks. He appeared in game 4 of the 1992 Stanley Cup Finals against the Pittsburgh Penguins, and recorded 21 saves and four shots during the first minutes of the game, 6:33. Although the Penguins won the Stanley Cup championship, Hasek’s star performance made him the focus of the Sabres team, and Hasek was traded to the Buffalo Sabres. With the Sabres, he wore the no. 39 jersey. He soon became a starter and developed into a top-level goaltender, as he won the 1994 Vezina Trophy, shared the William M. Jennings Trophy with Grant Fuhr, and was runner-up for the Hart Memorial Trophy. In December of 1997, Hasek had a league-record seven shutouts, won the Vezina Trophy for a second time, the Lester B. Pearson Award, and the Hart Trophy for league MVP. In the 1997-98 season, Hasek played a career high 72 games and set a franchise record with 12 shutouts; furthermore, half of his dozen shutouts came within one month and Hasek tied for the all-time League record for most shutouts in one month. His accomplishments continued with winning the Vezina Trophy, the Lester B. Pearson Award, and the Hart Trophy for league MVP once again. In 1999, he earned a career best 1.87 GAA and .937 save percentage average. Making the Stanley Cup Final, the Sabres played in one of the longest Stanley Cup playoff games in their sixth game against the Dallas Stars. His first two seasons with the Detroit Red Wings began during the 2001-02 and 2003-24 seasons. He helped the Red Wings earn the President’s Trophy for having the NHL’s best record, and became the first goaltender to be awarded an assist on an overtime game-winning goal in addition to setting a record for most shutouts (6) in a post-season. After a brief period in which he retired from the sport, Hasek finished his 2004 season with the Red Wings before signing a single-year deal with the Ottawa Senators. Back to the Red Wings in 2006, Dominik Hasek joined the Red Wings at the age of 41, and helped bring the team to earn the top seed in the Western Conference. He also broke his own record without a goal being scored within 181 minutes and 17 seconds. In 2008, Hasek and the Red Wings beat the Penguins in six games for the Stanley Cup win, Hasek’s second career Stanley Cup championship win with the team. On June 9, 2018, Hasek retired from the NHL upon being awarded the Williams M. Jennings Trophy for least goals against a team and being the oldest active goalie in the NHL at the age of 43. On November 17, 2014, he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame, as one of the league’s all-time greatest goalies.
Dominik Hasek has earned his title “The Dominator” largely due to his strong play and as one of the NHL’s best goalies. Winning the Stanley Cup championship twice with the Red Wings, Hasek has played a key role in the Red Wings’ history.
