Wow do I miss Stevie Y.  It was such an honor and privilege to watch one of the greatest hockey players ever. 

His a list of achievements are endless.

Captain of the wings for 20 years.

Yzerman was a 10 time All-star.

Was a four time Stanley Cup Champion.

Stevie Y also won many trophies: the Lester B. Pearson Award (1989), Con Smythe Trophy (1998), Frank J. Selke Trophy (2000), Bill Masterson Trophy (2003), Lester Patrick trophy (2006).

Statistically, he was sixth in NHL history in points, eighth in goals, and seventh in assists.

Not only was a he a great in hockey, but he always carried himself in a professional manner.

It was nice to have Steve play his whole career in Detroit. 

Thank you Steve!
