STEVE YZERMAN RUMORS

Lightning GM Steve Yzerman braves ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Tampa Bay Lightning General Manager Steve Yzerman was nominated by several folks -- including Lighting owner Jeff Vinik -- to complete the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and he has done so. Yzerman joined the ALS Challenge movement by having his daughters Maria and Sophia pour a bucket of icy water over his head. Yzerman nominated four friends including Colin Campbell (executive vice president...

Regner: Yzerman might never return to Red Wings

Steve Yzerman still might run the Detroit Red Wings someday, but it won't be anytime soon. Which isn't all that surprising to me. When news broke Monday that the former Red Wings captain had agreed to a four-year contract extension to remain as the Tampa Bay Lightning's VP and GM through the 2018-19 season, it reminded me of a conversation I had with Yzerman more than...

Regner: As always, Yzerman put his team first

It never even dawned on me that some Red Wings fans would be miffed at Steve Yzerman for not showing up at the ceremony retiring Nicklas Lidstrom's No. 5 last Thursday. But that's the case, and the angry fans were front and center, loud and determined to vent on sports radio, even as late as Monday afternoon. To which I say, get over it. There's no way Yzerman would simply...

Yzerman delivers cruelest 'No' of all

A few weeks ago, I spoke with Tampa Bay Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman. The subject turned to the Olympics, Team Canada. Yzerman is again executive director, having helped build the gold-medal team that won in Vancouver. The subject turned to the selection for the 2014 Games in Sochi, Russia. Yzerman knew precisely what would happen when the team was announced. “The first...

Red Wings fans still love Steve Yzerman

DETROIT -- There are few players who evoke the reaction that Steve Yzerman does in Detroit. Although Yzerman is incredibly busy with his main job as general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning and his side job as general manager of Team Canada, he managed to make it to the Alumni Showdown against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Comerica Park Tuesday. Yzerman was the last Red Wing introduced...

Yzerman will take a bona fide bow

Tuesday's announcement that Red Wings legend Steve Yzerman has committed to the Alumni Showdown on Dec. 31 at Comerica Park is terrific news. Finally, Yzerman will get the proper Detroit sendoff while wearing a Red Wings sweater. For me, there was always something incomplete about Yzermans career in Detroit. The last picture of him in a Red Wings uniform shouldn't be one...

Yzerman commits to Alumni Showdown

As if Red Wings fans needed another reason to go to the Maple Leafs vs. Red Wings Alumni Showdown on New Year's Eve. But they got one when former longtime captain Steve Yzerman, currently the general manager for the Tampa Bay Lightning, announced Tuesday that he would participate in the festivities. "Steve is one of the greatest Red Wings players ever," Wings general...

Yzerman: No real desire to skate again

DETROIT -- If you're hoping to see No. 19 on the ice one more time in a Detroit Red Wings sweater, you'll likely be disappointed. Meeting with the Detroit media before Saturdays Red Wings-Lightning game, former Wings great and current Tampa GM Steve Yzerman didn't sound at all committed to playing for the Wings alumni in their Winter Classic showdown against the Toronto...

Yzerman to run Canada's Olympic team

Steve Yzerman will lead Canada's hockey team at a second straight Winter Olympics. Hockey Canada on Monday appointed the NHL great executive director of the men's hockey team. Yzerman assembled the squad that won the gold medal at the 2010 Vancouver Games, and now he'll try to do the same at the Sochi Games in 2014. He'll be assisted by a group that includes Detroit...
