Hasek ready for his moment at Hockey Hall of Fame

TORONTO (WIVB) – Dominik Hasek is once again in the spotlight, getting ready for induction weekend at the Hockey Hall of Fame.

The former Sabres star met with the media today to kick off the four-day event, culminating with Monday’s induction ceremony.

“I came to the states in 1990 to Chicago, I was dreaming about one day being starting goalie in the NHL. It took me a few years, I was sent down to the minors. I was behind Eddie Belfour, who was at that time the Vezina Trophy winner,” said Hasek. “Honestly, never dreamt about Vezina Trophy winner and one time to be inducted to the Hockey HOF. It’s like a dream, seriously.”

A big part of that journey came in Buffalo, where he was a two-time league MVP.

“It was difficult in Chicago for me to become starting goalie. In Buffalo, it was a different situation. I got a chance, and you know how it ended,” said Hasek.
