One of the most curious invitees for the Canadian Olympic orientation camp is a player who doesn’t even know if he’s going to put on the blades at all this year: Joe Sakic.
But it is a measure of the respect for Sakic’s pedigree, and the integrity of Canadian Olympic executive director Steve Yzerman and Hockey Canada, that the veteran forward was extended an invitation, even though a decision on whether he will retire or not has not yet been made public.
Yzerman said he recently called Sakic and, without prying about his decision, told him he wanted Sakic at camp.
