It is not very often that hockey families thrive in the NHL; the Sutters come to mind but examples are few and far between. As the Quebec Nordiques had a budding superstar in Joe Sakic, his younger brother Brian Sakic was tearing it up in the WHL. After playing two seasons with the Swift Current Broncos, he really came into his own with the Tri-City Americans. In his last three years of junior he put up a phenominal 152, 168, and 128 points. Sakic was drafted in the 5th round, 93rd overall, of the 1990 entry draft by the Washington Capitals. After finishing his junior career, Sakic went straight to the East Coast Hockey League and played with the Erie Panthers. He had a couple of stints in the CoHL, WPHL, and UHL. The younger Sakic wasn't able to crack an NHL lineup and retired from professional hockey in 1999.
