    DETROIT -- Dominik Hasek is expected to announce his retirement, a person in the NHL told The Associated Press on Sunday night.

    The Detroit Red Wings scheduled a news conference for Monday morning without revealing details.

    A person within the league, who requested anonymity because the announcement was Hasek's to make, said Hasek was expected to end his award-winning career.

    Hasek won six Vezina Trophies in a nine-year span from 1993-2001 as the NHL's top goaltender and was the first goalie to win two consecutive Hart Trophies as the league's MVP.

    Hasek's retired more times than Frank Sinatra did.

    Didn't he retire in the First Round?

    When Hasek retired in 2002 he said he wanted to focus on some other hobbies, including his own clothing line.

    I always presumed this line would be exclusively for abnormally skinny hockey players, as he weighs 165 pounds.

    The person spoke anonymously because it was "Hasek's announcement to make"? Yet they spoke anyway.

    In related news, Chelios has said he wants to come back, even if it's in a reduced role.

    Although I normally rail against the "crafty-old-veteran-kept-around-to-mentor-the-youth" cliche, Chelios is one guy who would probably be valuable in that role. When he's healthy, he is still an effective player; he knows where the puck needs to be and how to get it there.

    I'd offer him a player/assistant coach role on the basis he wouldn't be activated for more than about 60 games, and he'd have to agree to lesser money too, to free up cap space for other players.
