Hasek To Announce Decision Next Week
The Detroit Free Press reports that goaltender Dominik Hasek has informed the Red Wings he will let them know whether he will return to the team within a week.
"I talked earlier this week with Dom's agent, and he said he'd let us know by the middle of the next week at the latest," general manager Ken Holland told the newspaper on Wednesday. "Dom keeps his cards close to his vest."
Hasek, 42, signed to a one-year contract last summer worth $750,000.
He went 38-11-6 with a 2.05 goals-against average, .913 save percentage, and eight shutouts during the regular season, his 15th in the NHL and third with Detroit in two stints.
Hasek was 10-8 with a 1.79 GAA, .923 save percentage, and two shutouts in the playoffs.
