Joe Sakic hasn't decided whether to return to Avalanche

DENVER - Colorado Avalanche captain Joe Sakic hasn't decided yet whether to return to the team for his 20th season or retire.

Team spokesman Jean Martineau said Saturday that Sakic met with general manager Francois Giguere. He said Sakic wasn't ready to make a decision about his future.

Martineau said Giguere told Sakic to take the time he needs and he didn't expect a decision very soon.

Earlier this week, Sakic went to Croatia for teammate Marek Svatos' wedding.

Sakic, who's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, will turn 39 next month.
