Steve Yzerman (Rookie Scoring Leader) - 1984 O-Pee-Chee

Stephen Gregory Yzerman (May 9, 1965-) retired from the NHL as the longest serving team captain in North American major league sports history at 19 consecutive seasons, or more than 1,300 career games. Yzerman starred as a junior player with the Peterborough Petes, scoring 101 goals and 146 assists in 164 junior hockey games and three seasons (1980-1983). The Detroit Red Wings selected Yzerman fourth overall in the 1983 NHL Entry Draft, the same year future All-Star teammates Bob Probert and Dominik Hasek as well as Hall of Famer Viacheslav Fetisov were also chosen. He earned a spot on the 1983-84 NHL All-Rookie First Team and finished second behind Tom Barrasso for the Calder Trophy, after he scored 39 goals and 48 assists in his rookie year. He became the youngest player in league history to play in an NHL All-Star Game, an honor he would receive on eight more occasions during his 22-year career. He played his entire career with the Detroit Red Wings (1983-2006) earning the honor of being called “The Captain” in the Motor City. He was also referred to as “Steve Y” by fans, and media alike.

Steve played a hard-nosed yet finesse game that earned him numerous accolades and awards over his career including the 1989 Ted Lindsay Award (most outstanding player as selected by the NHLPA), the 2000 Frank J. Selke Trophy (NHL’s top defensive forward) and the 2003 Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy (perseverance and sportsmanship). In 1997, he and the red Wings earned the ultimate award as they marched their first Stanley Cup victory in 42 years. They would repeat the following year as Yzerman was named the 1998 Conn Smythe Trophy winner (playoffs MVP) and would win again in 2003. Internationally, he won two gold medals in the 1984 Canada Cup and the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics. He finished his playing career with 692 regular season goals and 1,063 assists for 1,755 points in 1,514 games. He also racked up 70 playoff goals and 115 assists in 196 playoff games. Steve Y’s passion for the game and competitive will could not, however, overcome the injuries that would plague him in his latter years. Yzerman officially announced his retirement in 2006 and immediately joined the Wings front office as vice president. He again won the Stanley Cup in 2008 as Vic President of the Red Wings. In 2008, he was named the General Manager of Team Canada leading them to a 2010 Olympic final game victory over the United States in one of the greatest contests in Olympic history. Steve Yzerman was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2009. In 2010, the beloved Detroit captain was lured away from the Wings to join the Tampa Bay Lightning as Vice President and General Manager.
