Dominator sweeps awards
The Buffalo Sabres' sometimes controversial goaltender Dominik Hasek won the Vezina Trophy for best goalie and the Hart Trophy for MVP at the annual NHL Awards presentation on Thursday.
Earlier Hasek also won the Players Association's Pearson Trophy which is voted by the players.
The evening was more serious than in previous years as winners and awards presenters made reference to Detroit Red Wings' Vladimir Konstantinov, who was seriously injured in a car accident last week.
