Joseph Steve Sakic (IPA: /ˈsɑːkɨk/[3]) (born July 7, 1969 in Burnaby, British Columbia) is a Canadian professional ice hockey centre, who has played his entire National Hockey League career with the Quebec Nordiques/Colorado Avalanche franchise. In his 18-year tenure, Sakic has won the Stanley Cup twice, various NHL trophies, and has been voted into 13 NHL All-Star Games. He is regarded as one of the strongest team leaders to ever play in the league,[4] and has been able to motivate his team throughout his entire career to play at a winning level.[5] The position an ice hockey player plays can be divided into three basic categories: Forwards Centre Wingers Defenceman Goaltender ...

Over the course of his career, Sakic has been one of the most productive forwards in the game, having twice scored 50 goals and earning at least 100 points in six different seasons. His wrist shot, considered to be one of the best in the NHL, has been the source of much of his production.[6] At the conclusion of the 2006–07 NHL season, he was the 9th all-time points leader in the NHL, as well as 14th in all-time goals[7] and 11th in all-time assists.[8] During the 2002 Winter Olympics, Sakic helped lead Team Canada to its first gold medal in 50 years, and was voted as the tournament's most valuable player.[5] He has represented the team in six other international competitions, including the 1998 and 2006 Winter Olympics. After the 2000–01 NHL season, Sakic was named the MVP of the NHL by the hockey writers and his fellow players.[9] A wrist shot is a type of ice hockey shot that involves using arm muscles (especially those in the wrist and forearm) to propel a puck forward from the open-faced, concave part of the blade of a hockey stick. ...

Early life

Sakic was born in Burnaby to Marijan and Slavica Sakic[10] (originally Šakić, IPA: [ˈʃakiʨ][11]), immigrants from Croatia.[12] Growing up in Burnaby, he did not learn to speak English until kindergarten, having been raised with Croatian as his mother-tongue. This language barrier would make him a demure, quiet individual later in life.[12] Growing up as the child of immigrants, Sakic was instilled with a strong work-ethic, a trait which would serve him well in his hockey career.[12] As a smaller player, he was forced to use skill rather than size to excel, and modeled himself after his idol, Wayne Gretzky.[13] After showing exceptional promise as a young hockey player in Burnaby, Sakic was referenced as a new Wayne Gretzky in the making.[10] He scored 83 goals as part of 156 points, in only 80 games in Burnaby, and was added to the Lethbridge Broncos of the Western Hockey League for the last part of the 1985–86 season.[14] “Burnaby” redirects here. ...

During the 1986-87 WHL season, the Broncos relocated to Swift Current, Saskatchewan, becoming the Swift Current Broncos. Sakic, playing in his first full season, was named Rookie of the Year of the WHL.[15] He notched 60 goals and 73 assists for 133 points. But while Sakic enjoyed success on the ice, his team faced a tragedy on the night of December 30, 1986. The Broncos were driving to a game against the Regina Pats, and due to bad weather conditions, the bus crashed after the driver lost control on a patch of black ice outside of Swift Current. While Sakic was unharmed, four of his teammates (Trent Kresse, Scott Kruger, Chris Mantyka and Brent Ruff) were killed. This incident had a lasting impact on the young Sakic,[13] who has declined to talk about the crash during his career.[16] The next year, in 1987–88, Sakic was the WHL Most Valuable Player and Canadian Major Junior Player of the Year. He scored 160 points (78 goals, 82 assists), tying him with Theoren Fleury for the WHL scoring title.[5][17][18] The 1986-87 WHL season was the 21st season for the Western Hockey League. ...

NHL career

Quebec Nordiques

Sakic was drafted 15th overall by the Quebec Nordiques in the 1987 NHL Entry Draft.[9] Rather than make the immediate jump, he told the Nordiques management he would prefer to spend the 1987–88 season in Swift Current to prepare for the NHL.[14] He made his NHL debut on October 6, 1988 against the Hartford Whalers and scored an assist. His first NHL goal came two days later against goaltender Sean Burke of the New Jersey Devils.[19] During the season, he wore #88 because his preferred number, #19 was already taken by a teammate, Alain Côté.[20][21] While considered a front-runner for the Calder Memorial Trophy as rookie of the year due to his rapid scoring pace, an ankle injury that forced him to miss 10 games in December and resulting scoring slump helped quash any hopes of winning the award.[22] He would finish his rookie season with 62 points in 70 games.

In 1989–90, his second NHL season, Sakic was able to switch his number back to his familiar #19 (Alain Côté had retired over the summer), and scored 102 points, which was ninth overall in the league. At the start of the next season, 1990–91, he was named co-captain along with Steven Finn (Sakic was captain for home games, Finn for away games)[23] and again passed the 100 point mark, improving to 109 points and sixth overall in the league, but would slip during 1991–92 to 94 points, partly as a result of missing eleven games. Early on in the season, Sakic showed some of his leadership qualities, even while Mike Hough was serving as captain, as he stood firm in the Eric Lindros holdout issue. With Lindros holding out against the Nordiques, who were one of the worst teams in league, Sakic commented, "We only want players here who have the passion to play the game. I'm tired of hearing that name. He's not here and there are a lot of others in this locker room who really care about the game."[12] Lindros was traded a year later, ending the situation and bringing in a number of quality players, which vastly improved the Nordiques.[24] During their first four seasons with Joe Sakic, the Nordiques finished last place in the Northeast Division and last in the entire league for three straight years, from 1989 to 1991.[9] The 1989-90 NHL season was the 73rd regular season of the National Hockey League. ...

Starting with the 1992–93 NHL season, Sakic became the sole captain of the franchise.[9] Under his leadership, the Nordiques made the playoffs for the first time in six years, and set a franchise record for wins and points in the process (since broken by the 2001 Colorado Avalanche team).[9] Sakic reached the 100 point plateau, the third time he did so in five years, by scoring 48 goals and 105 points in the regular season, and added another 6 points in the playoffs. His production went down slightly to 92 points in 1993–94 as the Nordiques failed to make the playoffs again. After missing part of the 1994–95 season due to the players being locked out by owners, Sakic was 8 points behind Jaromír Jágr for the scoring title with a fourth place finish, and helped the Nordiques win the division title, their first in six years.[9] The 1992-93 NHL season was the 76th regular season of the National Hockey League. ...

Colorado Avalanche

In May of 1995, the Quebec Nordiques announced that the team had been sold and were relocating from Quebec. Before the start of the 1995–96 NHL season, the franchise moved to Denver, Colorado and was renamed the Colorado Avalanche. Sakic led the team to its first Stanley Cup championship, scoring 120 points in 82 regular season games and 34 points in 22 playoff games. He was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Most Valuable Player of the 1996 NHL playoffs. During the run for the cup, Sakic again proved himself to be an effective team leader. Although he had missed the playoffs in five of his first seven years in the NHL, and lacked any postseason experience, he scored 18 goals, including six game-winners, and 34 points. He was one goal off from the record for goals in a playoff year, and his game-winning goals established a new record.[25] The 1995-96 NHL season was the 79th regular season of the National Hockey League. ...

In the 1996–97 season, Sakic only played in 65 games due to a lacerated calf,[4] yet still managed to score 74 points as the Avalanche earned their first President's Trophy and third straight division title.[19] He had another great playoff season with 8 goals and 17 assists, and took the Avalanche all the way to the conference finals, where they eventually lost to the Detroit Red Wings in six games. As a free agent during the summer of 1997, Sakic signed a three year, $21 million offer sheet with the New York Rangers as an unrestricted free agent. Under the collective bargaining agreement at the time, the Avalanche had one week to match the Rangers' offer or let go of Sakic. Colorado would match the offer,[14] which instigated a salary raise for many NHL players.[26] The classic NHL shield logo The 1996-97 NHL season was the 80th regular season of the National Hockey League. ...

Injuries would again limit Sakic's playing time in the 1997–98 season. While playing in his first Olympics with Team Canada, Sakic hurt his knee and was forced to miss eighteen games with the Avalanche.[18] In the sixty-four games he did play in, he still scored 63 points, enough to earn him his seventh All-Star appearance.[19] He finally rebounded from his injury problems in the 1998–99 season, finishing fifth in the league in scoring with 41 goals and 96 points in only 73 games. He led the Avalanche all the way to within one game of the Stanley Cup finals, where they lost to the eventual Stanley Cup winning Dallas Stars. After the season ended, Sakic was ranked number 94 on The Hockey News' list of the 100 Greatest Hockey Players.[27] The 1997-98 NHL season was the 81st regular season of the National Hockey League. ...

During the 1999–2000 season, Sakic reached several career milestones. Injuries limited him to only 60 games, but he still managed to lead the team in scoring with 81 points. On December 27, 1999, against the St. Louis Blues, Sakic earned an assist to become the 56th player in NHL history to reach 1,000 career points.[28] Later in the season, on March 23, 2000, he scored a hat trick against the Phoenix Coyotes, and became the 59th player to score 400 career goals.[28] It also gave him 1,049 points with the Quebec/Colorado franchise, passing Peter Stastny as the all-time leader on the team.[19] Sakic eclipsed the 100 point mark again in 2000–01, finishing with 118 along with a career best 54 goals. He led the Avalanche to their second Stanley Cup championship, and won the Hart Memorial Trophy, the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy and the Lester B. Pearson Award. After the Avalanche defeated the New Jersey Devils in the 2001 finals in seven games, Sakic received the cup first as the captain. But instead of hoisting it high, he passed it straight to Ray Bourque, a player who had waited a record-breaking twenty-two seasons to win the Stanley Cup.[29] The 2001–02 season saw Sakic lead the Avalanche in scoring again, finishing sixth in the league with seventy-nine points. On March 9, 2002, he played in his 1,000th career game. The Avalanche once again reached the Western Conference Finals, but lost to the eventual Cup winning Detroit Red Wings. The following year Sakic appeared in only 58 games, and finished with just 58 points, the lowest total of his career.[19] He rebounded the following year, finishing third in the league with 87 points. It also marked the first time since the 1993–94 season that his team did not win the division title, which was won by the Vancouver Canucks.

Sakic warming up before a game in 2007

Following the 2004–05 NHL lockout, the Avalanche were forced to lose many of their key players in order to stay below the salary cap.[30] Even with the loss of teammates Peter Forsberg and Adam Foote, Sakic still helped the Avalanche get into the playoffs, where they eventually lost to the Anaheim Ducks in the conference semifinals. In June 2006, Sakic signed a one-year, $5.75 million deal to keep him with the Avalanche for the 2006–07 season.[31] Upon the retirement of Steve Yzerman a month later, on July 3, 2006, Sakic became the league leader for most NHL career points scored among active players.

Sakic had another strong season in the 2006–07. He scored his 600th career goal on February 15, 2007, against the Calgary Flames, becoming the seventeenth player in history to reach the milestone and third that year.[32] On the final day of the regular season, he scored his 100th point, reaching the milestone for the sixth time in his career.[8] At the same time, Sakic became the second-oldest NHL player to score 100 points in a season at age 37, alongside hockey legend Gordie Howe. Despite his efforts as well as a late season charge, Sakic and the Avalanche missed the playoffs for the first time in eleven years, finishing one point behind the eighth placed Calgary Flames.

In April 2007, Sakic signed on for a 19th NHL season with the Colorado Avalanche, signing a one-year deal for the 2007–08 season.[33] Sakic commented on the deal, saying "at this stage in my career, I prefer to do one-year deals as I evaluate my play year-to-year."[33] Upon signing Sakic to the deal, Avalanche General Manager Francois Giguere said, "Joe is the heart of this organization and his leadership and value to this team and especially our young players is unquestioned."[34] On May 1, the NHL announced that Sakic was named as one of the three finalists of the Lady Byng Trophy,[35] but it was eventually awarded to Pavel Datsyuk of the Detroit Red Wings. On October 7, 2007, he scored a goal and had an assist against the San Jose Sharks, moving past Phil Esposito into eighth place on the NHL career points list with 1,591.[36] Nineteen days later, Sakic scored a goal and assisted Ryan Smyth for an overtime game-winning goal against the Calgary Flames, reaching his 1,600th point in the NHL.[37] On December 27, 2007, it was announced that Sakic underwent hernia surgery to accelerate the recovery of an injury that had forced him to miss the previous 12 games after a 232 consecutive games played streak. The operation caused him to miss a career high 38 games. He was activated off of the injured reserve on February 24th, and played that night, scoring an assist.[38] On March 22, 2008, Sakic recorded his 1000th career assist against the Edmonton Oilers, becoming the 11th player in NHL history to reach this milestone.[39] The 2007-08 NHL season is the 90th season of the National Hockey League. ...

Sakic has been voted into the NHL All-Star Game thirteen times and has played in twelve of them and was captain for two of them, most recently in 2007. He has at least one point in eleven of them.[40] The only one that he missed entirely was the 1997 All-Star game, due to an injury. Sakic won the Most Valuable Player award in the 2004 All-Star game after scoring a hat trick and leading the Western Conference to victory. He is the all-time assist leader in all-star games with 16 assists[41] and is third place in all-time all-star scoring with 22 points, behind Mario Lemieux (23 points) and Wayne Gretzky (25 points).[41] His best record in an All-Star game was in 2007, when he scored four assists for the winning team; however the MVP award was given to Daniel Brière, who had a goal and four assists[41] The National Hockey League All-Star Game (French: Match des Étoiles de la Ligue Nationale de Hockey) is an exhibition ice hockey game that marks the midway point of the National Hockey Leagues regular season, with many of the star players playing against each other. ...

Sakic has had an extensive international hockey career, having represented Canada at seven international competitions.[5] After being drafted by the Nordiques in 1987, he went on and helped Canada win the 1988 World Junior Championship.[14] His next tournament was the 1991 World Championships, where Canada won the silver medal and Sakic contributed eleven points in ten games.[14] He tried out for the 1991 Canadian Canada Cup team, but was the first player to be cut, being cited for his weak leg strength.[14] Sakic was bitter about the experience, feeling he was not given a good enough chance to prove himself, and called the whole experience "a complete waste of time."[42] Image File history File links This is a lossless scalable vector image. ...

Sakic's first successful professional tournament was the 1994 World Championships, where Canada won its first gold medal in the tournament since 1961.

Records

In his 18-year career with the Nordiques and Avalanche, Sakic has obtained nearly all of the franchise scoring records, including most all-time goals (610), assists (979), and points (1589). He also holds the franchise record for most games played (1,319),[9] and is on several notable NHL record lists:

  • 1st place – Most points of active players (1589)
  • 1st place – All-Star game assists (16)
  • 3rd place – All-Star game points (22)

Throughout his career, Sakic has been one of the top scorers in the league, but was widely criticized for not leading his team to any playoff success.[27] While in Quebec, the Nordiques were one of the worst teams in the league, finishing last in their division five out of the seven years Sakic was with the team, including three straight years of being last overall in the league.[9] After leading the Avalanche to the Stanley Cup in 1996 with his 34 points, Sakic began to be seen as a leader capable of winning, and he was seen as one of the league's premier players.[56] Paul Stastny (born December 27, 1985) is a Canadian-American professional ice hockey center of Slovak descent who plays for the Colorado Avalanche of the National Hockey League (NHL). ... Peter Šťastný (born September 18, 1956 in Bratislava, Slovakia) is a Slovak ice hockey player who played in the National Hockey League (NHL) from 1980 to 1995. ...


Though Sakic is a quiet individual, he is able to motivate his team to play at higher levels, which has earned him the respect of his peers and executives.[57] The first signs of Sakic's leadership began to show while still a member of the Swift Current Broncos of the WHL. After the bus crash that killed four of his teammates, Sakic was seen as the leader of the team, acknowledging that the experience changed his outlook on life. This was further proven during the summer of 1997 when the New York Rangers offered him a large contract, in order to replace captain Mark Messier (who had left the team for the Vancouver Canucks), which under the rules of the NHL, the Avalanche were able to match.[26] Not to be confused with Marc Messier, an actor from Quebec. ...


One of the most defining actions of Sakic's career was at the conclusion of the 2001 playoffs. Defying the NHL tradition of the captain being the first to skate around with the Stanley Cup, Sakic passed it off to teammate Ray Bourque.[58] Bourque, one of the best defensemen to ever play, had been traded to the Avalanche the year before after spending 21 years with the Boston Bruins and setting the record for most games played without winning the Cup.[59] Sakic's handing of the trophy to Bourque is seen as just another example of Sakic's leadership abilities and how he performs through actions rather than words.[57] Raymond Jean Bourque (born December 28, 1960 in Saint-Laurent, Quebec, now a district of Montreal) is a Hockey Hall of Famer who currently holds the records for most goals, assists and points by a defenseman in the National Hockey League (NHL) and has become near-synonymous with the Boston...
