Sakic climbs all-time scoring list
Joe Sakic scored his 611th goal and registered his 1,591st career point on Sunday, moving into eight place on the NHL's all-time scoring list. As amazing as those numbers are, the fact that Sakic has amassed those totals with one organization is all the more impressive.
Sakic turned 38 over the summer, and is coming off a 36-goal, 100-point season, so it's certainly possible with another three years that he'll climb as high as seventh on the all-time goals list ahead of Mark Messier, and as high as fourth on the all-time points list ahead of Ron Francis.
He's said in the past he wants to continue to play until the 2010 Olympics touch down in his home province, which could be his final season.
Sakic has averaged 38 goals, 61 assists and 99 points per 82 games played over his career, and has been incredibly durable, averaging 75 games played per season over a 19-year career.
