This is the equivalent of Bobby Nystrom looking to come out of retirement with whatever flow he has left from back in his day and put a couple in the back of the net.

The HC Pardubice commented abotu Hasek’s return by stating:
“We are honored that Dominik Hasek used the offer to train together with our A team. Prepare him for the best possible conditions that could best prepare for the new season,” said general manager of Championship club Ondrej Sebek in the press release.
“We start up to meet him. Dominik, of course, can use all the facilities and cabins team has a full service, but his training regime to control myself,” Sebek said.
Hasek has reached out to the Buffalo Sabres who have decided to move on without him and it looks like for right now a lot of other teams are following in their foot steps. Are Hasek’s days numbered or will he be brought in to a training camp show up some young guns and land himself a one-year deal?
