“I’m happy to be in Moscow. I think that the both sides will benefit from this agreement,” said Hasek to Rossiya-2.
His salary is reported to be around $600,000.
“I know what Hasek is capable of. We did not sign a jersey with his name, we signed Hasek himself,” said Spartak’s head coach Milos Riha to Rossiya-2.
Hasek, 45, has recently won the Czech Extraliga champions title with Pardubice.
The Dominator, who has two Stanley Cups and six Vezina Trophies under his belt, will soon join Spartak in order to prepare for the 2010-11 season.
