The great Czech ice hockey goaltender Dominik Hašek had his no. 39 jersey retired by Buffalo Sabres in a ceremony at his former club’s arena on Tuesday night. The move signifies Hašek’s legendary status at Buffalo, where “the Dominator” spent most of his career. He won the Vezina trophy as the league’s best goaltender six times and the Hart Trophy as most valuable player twice while at the club. Hašek, now 49, was inducted into the NHL Hall of Fame in November, becoming the first Czech to receive that honour.
