With an incredible mix of strength and intelligence on the ice, Joe Sakic was one of most feared yet respected skaters in NHL history. Hundreds of skaters went against him in a “Faceoff”, and the Hall of Fame center came away victorious the majority of the time. In this image, Sakic is facing off against New Jersey Devils center Jason Arnott. Sakic routinely ranked among the league leaders in plus/minus, leading the NHL in the Stanley Cup-winning season of 2000-01 with a plus-45. The three-time NHL All-Star First Team skater finished the regular season with a positive plus-minus number in eight consecutive seasons starting in 1998-99. Sakic has signed this limited edition (50) 16” x 20” image in silver paint pen. His signature is deemed authentic by virtue of Upper Deck Authenticated’s Five Step Process.
