Hasek signs one year deal

DETROIT -- Red Wings General Manager Ken Holland today announced the team has signed goaltender Dominik Hasek to a one-year contract. In keeping with club policy, additional terms are not available.

Hasek, who will begin his third stint with Detroit, played the 2005-06 season with the Ottawa Senators. He posted a record of 28-10-4 in 43 appearances and earned five shutouts. His 2.09 goals against average (GAA) and .925 save percentage both ranked second among National Hockey League (NHL) netminders.

The six-time Vezina Trophy winner was originally acquired by Detroit on July 1, 2001, in a trade with the Buffalo Sabres. He backstopped the Red Wings to a Stanley Cup in 2002, before retiring later that summer. During the playoff run in 2002, Hasek established a NHL record for shutouts in a playoff year with six (second most now behind Martin Brodeur's seven, 2003). He was just as impressive during the 2001-02 regular-season, earning the second most wins in Red Wings history with 41.

After spending one year in retirement, Hasek returned to the Red Wings for the 2003-04 campaign, but was limited to 14 games because of a groin injury. In two seasons with Detroit, he played 79 games and posted a record of 49-18-10 with a 2.17 GAA.

The 14-year NHL veteran began his career with the Chicago Blackhawks in 1990-91 and spent two seasons there before getting dealt to the Sabres prior to the start of the 1992-93 season. He developed into the NHL's preeminent goaltender during his nine-year (1992-2001) stay in Buffalo. He won the Vezina Trophy (NHL's most outstanding goaltender) six times (1994, 1995, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2001), the Hart Trophy (NHL's most valuable player) twice in 1997 and 1998, the Lester B. Pearson Award (NHLPA top player) twice in 1997 and 1998 and was an NHL First Team All-Star six times. Hasek has a career record of 324-206-82 in 638 games. He ranks fifth among active goaltenders in wins and 18th all-time. His 68 shutouts rank third among active goaltenders and 12th all-time.

Internationally, Hasek has represented the Czech Republic three times at the Olympic Games (1998, 2002, 2006). He led the Czech's to a gold medal in 1998 and won a bronze medal in 2006.
