Roughly translated by Google Translate
Average Buffalo Sabres hockey team pulled out a few years ago among the absolute elite of the NHL. Now Dominik Hasek asked the same club for help. For help fulfill a dream and once you catch the famous league. He believed, hoped, wanted. He was not heard. The famous goalkeeper approached the definitive end of their career. Even though … “It’s by no means nebalím,” makes it clear in an interview for Sport that certain solutions in overseas continue to exist.
So from the sounds of it, Hasek asked the Buffalo Sabres if he could play in Buffalo and they said no. The headline of the article says ‘ Hasek’s career comes to an end: the NHL has rejected me, but I nebalím nothing!’ So i am assuming he is done in the NHL but may end up playing in KHL again next season.
