Hockey Hall of Fame member Steve Yzerman is among seven additions to the Detroit Red Wings' roster for the 2016 NHL Stadium Series Alumni Game at Coors Field on Feb. 26. 

Red Wings alumni will play alumni from the Colorado Avalanche before the Red Wings face the Avalanche in the 2016 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series on Feb. 27 (8 p.m. ET; NBC, SN, TVA Sports 2).

Yzerman, currently the general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning, spent his entire 22-season career as an NHL player in Detroit. He served as Red Wings captain beginning with the 1986-87 season at the age of 21 and helped them win the Stanley Cup three times (1997, 1998, 2002). Yzerman's 1,755 points are seventh in NHL history, and his 155 points (65 goals, 90 assists) in 1998-89 are behind only Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux for the most in a single season. 

In addition to Yzerman, Darren McCarty, Igor Larionov, Ty Conklin, Manny Legace, Mathieu Dandenault and Mike Knuble will represent Red Wings alumni. 

Conklin, a goalie who played for the Red Wings in 2008-09 and 2011-12, has participated in three NHL regular-season outdoor games, including the original Heritage Classic with the Edmonton Oilers at Commonwealth Stadium on Nov. 22, 2003. He was victorious in the Pittsburgh Penguins' 2-1 shootout win against the Buffalo Sabres in the first NHL Winter Classic on Jan. 1, 2008 and helped the Red Wings defeat the Chicago Blackhawks 6-4 in the 2009 Winter Classic. 

Approximately 50 players and coaches are scheduled to participate. Those returning for the Avalanche include executive vice president and general manager Joe Sakic, coach Patrick Roy, Peter Forsberg, and Claude Lemieux. 

The Alumni Game will be three 20-minute periods of running time with two 12-minute intermissions. Tickets to the Alumni Game and the Stadium Series game are available via www.Ticketmaster.com/NHL and www.Ticketmaster.ca/NHL, the official ticket marketplace of the NHL. 

Approximately 50 retired players and coaches are scheduled to participate. The Avalanche added Milan Hejduk, Dan Hinote, Valeri Kamensky, Mike Keane, Jon Klemm, Eric Messier and Shjon Podein to its roster. Those returning for Colorado include executive vice president and general manager Joe Sakic, coach Patrick Roy, Peter Forsberg and Claude Lemieux.
