Yzerman will be leaving the Detroit Red Wings, the only NHL team he’s ever been with, both as the longtime captain and more recently as vice president.  He won three Stanley Cups with the Red Wings.

Yzerman also led Canada to the men’s hockey gold medal in 2002.  More recently, he served as Hockey Canada executive director at the Vancouver Games.

Yzerman was not going to get a chance to be Detroit’s GM soon because two executives above him, Ken Holland and Jim Nill, are expected to sign long-term deals, ESPN reported.

Fans in Detroit, better known as Hockeytown, will surely miss Yzerman.
