DENVER (CBS4)– Joe Sakic was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday. He has some amazing memories from spending much of his life on the ice.
CBS4’s Gary Miller sat down with Sakic and they discussed his 20-year career in hockey.
“The biggest thing for me is I had the chance to play for 20 years. The longevity and obviously winning the championships, you can’t put one ahead of the other one. If you have a chance to win at anything, the years we had here, competing year in and year out, that’s what hockey is all about. We had some incredible teams and some incredible runs. To be a part of that is special,” said Sakic.

“I was very fortunate to win two cups and the Olympic gold is right up there as well,” said Sakic.
“If I had to pick one, if you forced me to pick one, that would be it. Winning it for the first time and holding the cup. It’s something you dreamed of as a kid and here you have it, it’s right here. Having the opportunity to win one is pretty special.”
