Colorado Avalanche (and Quebec Nordique) fans don’t need me to remind them that Joe Sakic was the man. His skills with putting the puck in the goal are one of the best in the history of the NHL.
Former Colorado Avalanche center Joe Sakic earned $1 million — $500,000 for him and $500,000 for charity — by making a hole-in-one at the American Century celebrity golf tournament. And it was a beautiful shot that didn’t need much encouragement to find the hole.
Sakic was part of the All-Star event at the American Century championship at the Edgewood Tahoe Golf Club. Even with the hole-in-one, Joe didn’t finish all that great. He ended up tied at 28th overall.
