Czech goalkeeper rumored to join Russian ice hockey club


The Russian sports newspaper Sovetsky Sport reported that the Czech ice hockey player Dominik Hašek is set to travel to Moscow in the next few days to sign a contract with Spartak Moscow. The 35-year-old goalkeeper, who won gold at the Winter Olympic Games in Nagano, has not yet commented on speculations of his possible move to Spartak. His personal trainer said last week that Mr. Hašek was thinking about the offer but had not made a decision yet. The Czech goalkeeper returned from a one-year break last year, after ending his career at the NHL.
