“The NHL is obligated to pay billions to Ukraine.” Hasek “reprimanded” the American league for the Russian players

Date: April 21, 2024 Time: 02:43:56

Two-time Stanley Cup winner Dominik Hasek has become one of the most vocal voices in international hockey lately. Almost no event goes unnoticed by the Czechs… when it comes to Russia. Once again, the veteran did not miss the opportunity not only to express his position regarding Russian hockey players, but also to go much further.

In response to Ovechkin’s words, he forced the NHL to pay Ukraine.


The history of the relationship between Dominik Hasek and Russian hockey has long turned towards mutual hatred. It all started with the Czech’s harsh comments about Russia: in his statements, the former Spartak goalkeeper (it is worth clarifying in the context of history) periodically criticizes everything that is directly and indirectly related to Russian hockey: from condemning the performance of foreigners in the KHL (according to his words, for his performance in the league he should be imprisoned for 15 years) until the national team does not participate in any tournaments.

Now that everyone on the European continent has received their share of condemnation from the Czechs, he began talking to NHL officials about the correct attitude towards the Russians. It all started with the fact that last year, before the regular season exhibition game between Saint Joseph» AND nashville» He demanded that Russian hockey players not be allowed entry.

Then his demand was ignored and he soon took more active measures: he prepared a whole letter to the NHL asking to suspend contracts with the Russians. As we can see, no one took the Czech’s attempts seriously, just like in the tennis association: he even did it.

Soon there was another cry from Hasek that American League officials should break contracts with Russian hockey players. The Czech, who had exhausted everyone, did not receive any reaction, but the chief ambassador of Russian hockey in the United States, Alexander Ovechkin, decided to put the veteran in his place:

– I’m not very interested in your statements. NHL clubs select players by skills and abilities, not by nationality, Ovechkin said in an interview with Izvestia.


The fighter against everything Russian could not ignore Alexander’s words and in response launched a whole diatribe, also on the air of a Russian television channel:

– Alexander Ovechkin represents his country in the NHL and is advertising for Russia. Well, the NHL, which allows Ovechkin and other Russian hockey players to play, promotes this country. For each season of Russian advertising, the NHL is obliged to pay between 2 and 4 billion dollars to Ukraine,” Dominic said on Match TV.

There is no point in speculating whether league bosses will listen to his words. And while the Czech hockey legend continues to play “war”, Russian hockey players continue to successfully “storm” the North American league, demonstrating a high level of skill. In the NHL everyone seems to be happy with this…
