Hasek’s deep list of career awards and records

A look at some unforgettable plays, historical moments and great memories from the NHL career of Hockey Hall of Fame inductee, Dominik Hasek.

Dominik Hasek isn’t just a Hall of Fame goaltender. He’s arguably one of the three greatest to ever strap on a pair of pads.

In addition to seizing more than 25 franchise records with the Buffalo Sabres, who will retire his No. 39 sweater on Jan. 19, the goaltender set franchise records for most games played, minutes played, wins and shutouts in a single post-season for the Detroit Red Wings when he backstopped them to the 2002 Stanley Cup.

The Dominator’s professional dominance started at an early age (16) and ended at an advanced one (43). His list of achievements and awards is evidence of both individual excellence and team success. He could steal a single game — as he did against Martin Brodeur on April 27, 1994, stopping 70 pucks in a quadruple-overtime shutout — or set the mark for career consistency, as his .922 save percentage tops all retired goaltenders.
