DETROIT (AP) -- Dominik Hasek announced his retirement during a
news conference in Detroit on Monday, only days after the Red Wings
won the Stanley Cup in six games over Pittsburgh.

The six-time Vezina Trophy winner as the NHL's top goaltender
and two-time Hart Trophy winner as the league's MVP leaves on a
mixed note.

Hasek, the only goalie to win the NHL MVP award twice, lost his
job during Detroit's run to the Cup. The 43-year-old from the Czech
Republic was benched during the opening-round series in favor of
Chris Osgood and never regained the starting job.
