- It appears former Red Wings captain Steve Yzerman is coming home. He and Holland are very close.

TSN's Gord Miller reports the team will introduce Yzerman as their new general manager, while Holland will stay on as senior vice president.

Ken Holland, the club's GM since 1997, will remain as the team's senior vice president.

Throughout the conference, which was attended by the likes of Kris Draper and Henrik Zetterberg, Yzerman emphasized that he wished he'd won a championship in Tampa Bay but that he was glad to be back in Detroit. "He built one of the finest organizations in the National Hockey League and lead us to the playoffs in six of the nine years he was with us, including three Conference Finals and one Stanley Cup Final".

Kodak Black's mysterious absence from his concert on Wednesday night (April 17) has been explained. Kodak has a show at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in CT tonight that has been canceled.


Yzerman, 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.

As the general manager, he'll have a chance to do it again. Steve Yzerman has re-joined the Detroit Red Wings.

Under Yzerman, Tampa Bay made it to its conference final three times and the Stanley Cup final once.

Detroit has spent the past three seasons in mediocrity, and hope Yzerman can set the team straight.

The conference will be held at Little Caesars Arena at 3:00 p.m.

Rebuilding the Red Wings "will take some time", Yzerman said Friday, according to the Detroit Free Press' Helene St. James. He began his post-playing career as vice president of hockey operations under Holland in Detroit and was part of the organization as a Stanley Cup victor in 2008 before leaving to lead the Lightning.

He is the second-leading scorer in Detroit history behind Gordie Howe (1,809 points; 786 goals, 1,023 assists) and is the Red Wings' all-time assists leader.
