    Joe Sakic to retire after 20 seasons

    DENVER (AP)—Joe Sakic, the Colorado Avalanche’s longtime captain who led the team to two Stanley Cup titles, is retiring after a 20-year NHL career, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
    The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because Sakic, a 13-time All-Star, is expected to formally announce his decision to retire on Thursday at a news conference.
    Sakic, who turned 40 on Tuesday, has been the face of the franchise since the team relocated to Denver from Quebec in 1995. He teamed with Patrick Roy, Peter Forsberg and Adam Foote to capture the Stanley Cup in 1996 and 2001.
    It’s been a storied career for Sakic, who has won championships and league MVP honors, and led Team Canada to an Olympic gold medal in 2002.

    Re: Joe Sakic to retire after 20 seasons

    Sakic is one tough player. Pretty sure he is a first-ballot HOF candidate, isn't he? I seem to remember he could do it all. Tough nosed, could scrap, fight, score, and assist.
