As injuries began to take their toll, Sakic's last great season came in 2006-07 when he scored 36 goals -- including the 600th of his career -- and 100 points. The 13-time All-Star retired, at age 40, in July 2009 ranked eighth on the NHL's all-time scoring list (1,641 points). He also holds the league's postseason marks for overtime goals (8). Most of all, he will be remembered as one of hockey's truly great leaders.
