first_img NHL playoffs 2019: Penguins GM never saw point where ‘guys came together as a team’ Former Red Wings captain Steve Yzerman is returning to Detroit to become the team’s general manager, according to multiple reports.The Red Wings have announced a 3 p.m. ET news conference Friday in Detroit with owner Chris Ilitch, general manager Ken Holland and Yzerman. Holland — who has been the Red Wings GM since 1997, leading the team to four Stanley Cups — is expected to stay on as a senior vice president, according to the reports.BREAKING: The Red Wings will introduce Steve Yzerman as their new GM this afternoon, Ken Holland to remain as Sr Vice President.— Gord Miller (@GMillerTSN) April 19, 2019Yzerman, 53, has been with the Lightning for nine seasons, the first eight as GM before moving into a consulting role this season in the final year of his contract. Related News At an end-of-season news conference April 8, Holland, 63, said he would remain the team’s general manager “until I’m not managing the Detroit Red Wings” (per the Detroit News), as rumors of Yzerman’s return swirled.A Hall of Fame player who captained the team for two decades, Yzerman was a key player on three Stanley Cup-winning teams in Detroit. In 22 seasons with the Red Wings, he scored 692 goals and amassed 1,755 points. He retired after the 2005-06 season, moving into the team’s front office as a vice president. Under Yzerman, the Lightning reached the Stanley Cup Finals in 2015. This season, Tampa Bay tied the Red Wings’ record for most victories in a single season (62). However, the Lightning’s postseason came to a crashing halt as the top seeds were swept out in the first round by the Blue Jackets.That immediately reheated speculation that had simmered all season over not if, but when Yzerman might return to the Red Wings, a proud franchise that has missed the playoffs the past three seasons.last_img read more
