#tbt: Forsberg and Sakic, hockey stars and occasional gunslingers

Wednesday November 19th, 2014

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.
