Right-winger David Sacco played briefly with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in the mid-90s. He was a quick player with goal scoring ability but ended up being more suitable for the larger ice surface in Europe and the more wide open play in the minors.
Born in Malden, Massachusetts, the younger brother of Joe Sacco was chosen 195th overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1988 out of Medford High School. He then starred at Boston University and represented the United States at the 1993 World Championships. Sacco was named an NCAA first team all-American and voted on to the Hockey East first all-star team twice each. The young winger also opted to spend several months with the national team and took part in the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics.
Following the Olympics, Sacco played briefly for Toronto then in the AHL with St. John's. In September, 1994 he was traded to Anaheim for forward Terry Yake and was a decent role player for parts of two seasons. He was eventually returned to the minors then played for the SC Bern club before retiring in 1997.
