According to something I just read on my phone, Dominik Hasek's daughter is in this year's Eurovision song contest with a band named after his nickname, "The Dominator."  Is this for real?

Nope. Feminine gender names end in "a." Hasekova is correct.

I’m not an expert, so really correct me if I’m wrong.

Yes, feminine versions end in an -a, but you don’t also add -ov to the name.  The feminine version of Hasek would be Haseka.  I think, I guess.

The masculine version of Hasekova, would be Hasekov.  No?

That's why I did not know if it's really her.

Explanation:
Exceptions (Jírů, Kočí) aside, Czech females do not bear the same names as the males of their family.
The most common mutation is -ová; Mr. Novák's wife is Mrs. Nováková and Martina Navrátilová's father was (is?) called Navrátil.
The female version of male names that end in -ý (they look like adjectives) has an ending -á. Some of you may remember another Czech tennis player - Jana Novotná. Her father's name is Novotný.

Right.  It's the same name, simply the masculine and feminine versions. 

I found an old document in my great grandmother's name.  My family name is Polish, ends in -icki (pronounce ICKEE in English, EETSKEE in Polish).  The document with her name had it listed as -icka (pronounced EETSKA I'm pretty sure).
