Legendary Czech goalkeeper, Dominik Hasek, nicknamed The Dominator, has announced that he’ll return to the ice to play for his former club in the top Czech league, the AP news agency reports.
The 44-year-old goaltender signed a contract with HC Moeller Pardubice for next season.
Pardubice is Hasek’s home town, and he started his career in the colors of the local club.
“I'm really glad I could sign a deal with this club,'' Hasek said. "It's a club where I spent the most years. I've never even thought I could play for any other club in the Czech Republic. I'm looking forward to the next season.”
The announcement came less than a year after Hasek retired from ice hockey after he won the Stanley Cup with the Detroit Red Wings.
