At the age of 46, Dominik Hasek was still playing hockey. Michael Frolik Jersey . He put on his goalie pads for the final time Feb. 27, 2011 in the KHL. At the age of 49, "the Dominator" is expected to be part of the class of 2014 at the Hockey Hall of Fame, which will be announced this afternoon on TSN2 at 3pm et/Noon pt. Though nothing is guaranteed, the six-time Vezina Trophy-winner should be a lock. "For me its a no-brainer," former Buffalo Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said earlier this year. Hasek won one Stanley Cup as a starter with the Detroit Red Wings in 2002, then split time with Chris Osgood and became the backup in the playoffs for the 2008 title. He came close to the Cup in 1999 with Buffalo, only to be beaten by the Dallas Stars on Brett Hulls foot-in-the-crease overtime goal. Haseks best years came with the Sabres, when he had seven straight seasons with a save percentage of .930 or higher. He finished with 234 career regular-season victories in Buffalo and 389 over his 16-year NHL career. Veteran goaltender Tomas Vokoun "knew all along" Hasek would be great from watching him play in their native Czech Republic. "It took him a little bit just because of his style and all that to convince people here," Vokoun said in a phone interview. "I definitely consider him, if hes not the best, one of the top three to ever play. ... He definitely deserves to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer." Swedish centre Peter Forsberg is also expected to get the call to the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility. American-born centre Mike Modano leads the other new candidates and is the most likely to be inducted, ahead of three-time Cup-winner and first-ballot dark horse Mark Recchi. Forsberg, who began his career with the Quebec Nordiques following the blockbuster Eric Lindros trade with the Philadelphia Flyers, went on to win two Cups with the Colorado Avalanche. He finished with 885 points in 708 regular-season games as his career was cut short by foot injuries. With 1,374 points over 21 seasons, Modano became the most prolific American-born scorer in NHL history. Late coach Pat Burns remains a candidate in the "builder" category, a year after Fred Shero was posthumously elected 38 years after leading the Flyers to back-to-back Cups. Burns, a three-time Jack Adams Award winner as coach of the year, died in November 2010 at the age of 58. This is the first year John Davidson is serving as chairman of the Hockey Hall of Fame selection committee, replacing Jim Gregory. Bobby Clarke, David Poile and Luc Robitaille were appointed to the committee for the first time. Clarkes addition raised the question of whether Lindros would stand a better chance of being elected. Despite a contentious relationship with the Lindros family, the longtime Flyers general manager is considered a proponent of his Hall of Fame case. Lindros has similar numbers to Forsberg 865 points in 760 games over 13 seasons and won the Hart Trophy as league MVP in 1994-95. The three-time Canadian Olympian and world junior standouts resume isnt as Hall of Fame-worthy as Haseks. The goaltender is all but certain to be inducted Nov. 10. "I appreciate it, its very nice to be among all these big players," Hasek said recently when asked about impeding election to the Hall of Fame. "I appreciate to be one day, maybe, in the Hockey Hall of Fame, however ... it was never my goal when I was playing hockey." Michael Stone Jersey . -- Wide receiver Sidney Rice should be fully recovered from a torn knee ligament by the time the Seattle Seahawks start defence of their Super Bowl title, general manager John Schneider said Wednesday. Matt Stajan Jersey .com) - Will Conant booted a 39-yard field goal as time expired and Air Force played spoiler with a 27-24 win over 21st- ranked Colorado State on Friday. http://www.jerseyofficialhockeyflames.com/mike-smith-hockey-jersey/ . - Justin Turner is at his best with runners in scoring position, and he delivered again in a big spot for the Los Angeles Dodgers.Indianapolis, IN (SportsNetwork.com) - Rudy Gay scored 31 points, DeMarcus Cousins had another double-double and the Sacramento Kings snapped an eight- game losing skid with a 99-94 win over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday. Darren Collison scored 23 points with five rebounds and five assists, and Cousins overcame his worst shooting night of the season to post 20 points and 19 rebounds. The trio of Gay, Collison and Cousins combined for nearly 75 percent of Sacramentos points. We got the team to play for each other, said Collison. I think the key for us was executing down the stretch. Cousins picked up his 14th double-double in his last 16 games but shot 6- for-24 from the floor and turned the ball over four times before fouling out late in the fourth quarter. C.J. Miles and David West had 17 points apiece to lead Indiana, while George Hill gave 14, six boards and four assists in limited minutes off the bench. Both teams were terrific from the foul line, as Sacramento went 26-of-29 from the stripe and Indiana finished 23-for-25. Gay and Cousins combined to make all 19 of their attempts. The plan was not to send them to the free throw line, said Pacers coach Frank Vogel. We werent very disciplined with our hands and our boody position . Miikka Kiprusoff Jersey. . that combined with turning the ball over a little too much in the first half put us in a deep hole that we couldnt recover from. The Kings raced out to a big lead behind 12 first-quarter points from Collison. Their lead reached 18 points twice in the late stages of the first before settling for a 34-21 lead after one. Again Sacramento looked prime to break the game open, with an 8-0 run early in the second making it 46-25. The spread grew to 23 points following a pair of Cousins free throws, but again Indiana closed the quarter strong and went into halftime down just 14. The Pacers cut their deficit to single digits on a Miles layup early in the fourth. Cousins fouled out with the Kings up by eight with 1:46 to play, but Roy Hibbert hit two free throws and Miles followed with a pair from the stripe to get Indiana within four. Collisons pull-up jumper at the other end helped Sacramento hold on. Game Notes The Kings avoided their first nine-game slide since the 2008-09 season ... Indiana had won four of five at home in the series ... Luis Scola had 13 points off the bench for Indiana ... Indianas reserves outscored Sacramentos, 56-11.
