"Yeah, I'll be back"

Following the last game of the season, a game in which he hit the 100-point barrier for the 6th time in his career, 37-year old Joe Sakic confirmed that he would be returning for a 19th season. "Yeah, I'll be back".

It's being reported that Sakic - a UFA on July 1st - has already agreed to a one-year deal with the team, and that the deal may be announced as early as today.

EDIT: It is official now. Sakic returns next year. EDIT#2: $6.75 Million.
