Quick, hard, accurate and impossible to track -- Joe Sakic's unmatched wrist shot forced many a goalie to turn around and go fishing for the puck somewhere deep inside the net.
"Yeah, he was pretty sick," former NHL goalie Kevin Weekes said. "Just YouTube him and watch."
Sakic officially will be enshrined into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Nov. 12 largely because of his effective and, quite frankly, impossibly good wrist shot that helped him score 625 career regular-season goals and 84 in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Opponents were left in awe of it on most nights, almost as if they never saw it coming -- because a lot of times they didn't.
