Brian Sakic (born September 4, 1971 in Burnabymarker, British Columbiamarker, Canadamarker) is a former professional ice hockey player.

Playing career

Sakic started his junior career with the Swift Current Broncos of the WHL. His brother, retired NHLer Joe Sakic, was also on the team. Brian was drafted in the fifth round, 93rd overall in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft by the Washington Capitals; however, he would never play a single game in the NHL. However, he did manage to set WHL records for career assists, with 405, and points, with 591.
His jersey number has been retired by the Tri-City Americans.


Sakic retired from professional hockey in 1999.

Controversy

On October 3rd 1989, Sakic and Swift Current Broncos teammate Wade Smith were charged with sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl in Swift Currentmarker, Saskatchewanmarker. On November 1, 1989, after the alleged victim was interrogated, the charges against the players were immediately stayed, and public mischief charges were laid against the girl.Sakic and Smith were traded from the Broncos.

The trial took place in January 1990. The players agreed that they had done everything to the girl that she described, which included penetration in three orifices, and admitted that "there had been blood." It was revealed during the trial that the accuser bled heavily the night of the alleged rape and continued to bleed intermittently for the next two days. They said she begged for more. The girl said she begged them to stop and was terrified.

Presiding Judge Harding found the girl not guilty and wrote that as a result of the "degrading and disgusting" incident, the girl "suffered considerable physical and emotional pain. That's not sympathy. That's fact. It became clear to her that [the hockey players] had no feelings at all for her and had merely used her for their own sexual gratification. She honestly believed that what happened to her was not by consent."

Attorney Murray Walter, who represented the girl, requested to the Province of Saskatchewan's Justice Department that an inquiry into the case be held. His request was denied.

Later that year, at the NHL Entry Draft held in Sakic's hometown of Vancouvermarker on June 16th 1990, Sakic was a fifth-round pick of the Washington Capitals. The Capitals said they decided to draft Sakic in spite of what had occurred after he was interviewed by the team's director of player personnel Jack Button.
