Red Wings to reportedly name Steve Yzerman as the team's next general manager.
The Detroit Red Wings have named Steve Yzerman as their new general manager, the team announced Friday.
The team held a press conference Friday afternoon, where they named Yzerman the new GM and Ken Holland, who currently holds the position, will assume the senior vice president's job.
Holland has been the Red Wings general manager since 1997.
The 53–year–old Yzerman spent 22 seasons with the Red Wings before retiring in 2006, leading Detroit to three Stanley Cups in that time.
Yzerman had been the general of the Tampa Bay Lightning since 2010 and stepped down last September to take an advisory role.
The Lightning had the league's best record this season but were swept out the playoffs by the Columbus Blue Jackets.
