Sakic inks one-year deal with avalanche

DENVER - Patience paid off for the Colorado Avalanche, who signed Joe Sakic to a one-year, US$6-million contract Wednesday after he decided to play a 20th NHL season rather than call it a career.

"Ultimately it came down to the fact that I still enjoy playing and competing," the 39-year-old captain said in a statement released by the team. "I'm comfortable with my conditioning and my overall health.

"I'm ready for the start of camp and am looking forward to the upcoming season."

Because the Democratic National Convention is taking place this week at the Pepsi Center, the Avs' home, the team said it wouldn't hold a news conference until next week.

Sakic's teammates had started to fear he wasn't coming back, and the announcement was a relief.

"Everybody was starting to worry what Joe was going to do," forward Ian Laperriere said. "It's great news for more than one reason.

'What he brings to the ice, everyone knows, Joe is Joe. But what he brings to the locker room, the respect, everybody's so calm when he's around. That's what he brings that people don't see."...more.

Damn, I knew Sakic was a seasoned vet, but going on his 20th season? That's quite epic. It's kind of hard to be above the age of 35 in the NHL, what with all the physicality and strain on one's body. Kudos on having the same name as me!

Yeah its pretty tough on those guys, I'm pretty pumped for his 20th season. Did you know Chris Chelios is 46 and he is still playing?
