DETROIT -- A Who's Who of former Red Wings stars are ready to return to the Motor City on January 2 for the retirement of Steve Yzerman's No. 19 jersey. The list of former Wings teammates from Yzerman's career include his predecessor as team captain, Danny Gare, as well as several members of Detroit's 1997, 1998 and 2002 Stanley Cup Championship teams.

Cup winners scheduled to attend are Brett Hull, Igor Larionov, Mike Vernon, Steve Duchesne, Larry Murphy, Joe Kocur, Doug Brown and the entire coaching staff of Scotty Bowman, Dave Lewis and Barry Smith.

Yzerman's number will join the five retired numbers already hanging from the rafters of Joe Louis Arena, and all will be represented as Gordie Howe, Alex Delvecchio and Ted Lindsay will attend, while members of the Terry Sawchuk family and the Sid Abel family will be on hand to welcome Yzerman to this elite group.

Fans are reminded that the Joe Louis Arena doors open at 5 p.m. on Jan. 2. They are encouraged to arrive early in order to obtain special Steve Yzerman Night giveaways at the door and to be in their seats for the start of the retirement presentation, which will begin at 6:30 pm.
