Yzerman new Wings\' Vice-President
Detroit Red Wings owner Mike Ilitch today named Steve Yzerman Vice-President of the NHL team. Yzerman will work with the management team of Senior Vice-President Jim Devellano, General Manager Ken Holland and Assistant General Manager Jim Nill on all aspects of the Red Wings organization. "It has been apparent for the last decade that Steve would play his entire career with the Red Wings," said Ilitch. "After retiring as the longest serving captain in NHL history and the on-ice leader of our franchise for 23 years, it is only fitting that he join our management team in a meaningful position. I'm confident Steve will bring the same passion and dedication he displayed on the ice to our management team and help us make the Detroit Red Wings the best we can be." Yzerman, who announced his retirement on July 3, 2006, completed a remarkable 23-year career. He played 1,514 games (10th all-time), scored 692 goals (eighth all-time) and tallied 1,063 assists (seventh all-time). His 1,755 career points rank sixth all-time in NHL history.

Yzerman, seen here at his retirement press conference, accepted VP position with team.
As impressive as Yzerman's statistics are, it's his title as the longest serving captain in NHL history that may encapsulate his illustrious career. His 20-year reign as captain of the Wings began in 1986-87. Yzerman supplanted Danny Gare as the youngest captain in franchise history when he was named captain at just 21-years-old. Mike and Marian Ilitch purchased the team in June 1982 and soon after appointed Jim Devellano general manager. Devellano used his first pick as Red Wings' general manager to select Yzerman fourth overall in the 1983 NHL Entry Draft. He's the Red Wings' all-time leader in assists and ranks second all-time in goals and points. Only Gordie Howe (1,687) and Alex Delvecchio (1,549) played more games in a Red Wings sweater.
