Joe Sakic card #44 1992-93 Upper Deck #36

  • The main site that I use for stats, hockeyreference.com, doesn't even list Brian Sakic.  Joe's brother was drafted in the 5th rd in 1990 by the Capitals, and had a pretty good minor pro career.  Brian never did make it to the NHL.
  • This was one of 5 "Bloodlines" cards in the 92-93 UD set.  The other brothers were the Millers (Kevin, Kelly and Kip), the Lindens (Trevor and Jamie), the Courtnalls (Russ and Geoff) and the Gretzkys (Wayne, Brent and Keith).  None of the other 4 cards featured the players in tuxedos.
  • Joe's 44th career goal came against the Maple Leafs, 1/3/90.  Joe had 2 goals and 3 points in a 5-4 loss.
