#tbt: Forsberg and Sakic, hockey stars and occasional gunslingers
Former Colorado Avalanche star Peter Forsberg was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame Monday night. Several of his former teammates attended the ceremony, including fellow Hall of Famer Joe Sakic. To celebrate the honor, we dug up this gem of Forsberg and Sakic from 1996. Just a casual portrait of a Swede and a Canadian embracing the all-American cowboy lifestyle. Look at those smolders.
Sakic retired in 2009 after 20 seasons with the Avalanche. He was named the team captain in 1992 and finished his career as the all-time leading scorer in franchise history.
But on this Throwback Thursday, we remember that one time they pretended to be gunslingers and totally rocked it.
