Former Nordique Joe Sakic was a first-round pick by Quebec. But was he a first overall pick in the league?

The Nordiques left Quebec City in 1995 for Denver to become the Colorado Avalanche, after being in the Vieille Capitale since 1972. The team started in the now defunct World Hockey Association and joined the National Hockey League in 1979, along with Edmonton, Winnipeg, and Hartford.
