Nathan MacKinnon still is working to match Joe Sakic's greatest achievement in the NHL, but the Colorado Avalanche center will get an opportunity to match the Hall of Famer's greatest feat on the golf course this weekend.
MacKinnon will take part in the One Million Dollar Hole-in-One Challenge presented by Bridgestone on the par-3 17th hole of Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course. That hole was the same one Sakic, the Avalanche's general manager, aced during the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in 2011.
MacKinnon's attempt will air during the first intermission of the 2021 Bridgestone NHL Outdoors Saturday game between the Avalanche and the Vegas Golden Knights (3 p.m. ET; NBC, SN, SN1, TVAS), which will be played on a rink built on the 18th fairway of the Edgewood Tahoe Resort in Stateline, Nevada.
