Joe Sakic

Joe Sakic Joe Sakic was born on July 7, 1969 in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada. Sakic played his junior hockey with the Swift Current Broncos of the Western Hockey League (WHL) and won the Canadian Major Junior Player of the Year in 1988. He also won a gold medal with team Canada in the 1988 World Junior Championships. Sakic was the 2nd pick, 15th overall of the Quebec Nordiques in 1987. Even though the Nordiques struggled for most of Sakic's tenure, he quickly established himself as an offensive threat. He passed the 100 point mark in his second season and would continue to score at a blistering page through the 1990s. The Nordiques moved south to Denver in the 1995-96 season and became the Colorado Avalanche. Sakic's play continued to soar as the Avalanche through the 1996 playoffs. The Avalanche would win their first ever Stanley Cup that year and Joe Sakic was an integral part of that effort, scoring 34 points in 22 games and taking home the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Stanley Cup playoff MVP.

Through the 1990s Sakic led his Avalanche team to become a perennial playoff contender. In a team stacked with talented players like Patrick Roy and Peter Forsberg, Sakic was the team captain and led them to their second Stanley Cup Championship in 2001. Sakic has been recognized for his scoring prowess and his sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct with the award of the Lady Byng trophy.
