Steve Yzerman, longtime captain of the Detroit Red Wings, is one of the most popular hockey players to play the game. His finesse and desire to play to game is what makes him a leader, and a winner. He's extremely gifted offensively, but changes from Scotty Bowman's defensive system has helped him become hockey's greatest two-way forward.

Steve, over the years, has never requested a trade, nor asked for more money, in result received the loyalty of his legions of fans all over the world. He's been with the Wings since '83, and now seems as permanent as the franchise itself. He's extended his contract that will allow his career to close after the '02-'03 season.
