Red Wings' fans showed their support for their Captain on his retirement night. The book, which is on sale now, covers Yzerman from youth hockey to the Stanley Cup.
During 22 seasons, Steve Yzerman helped the Red Wings to three Stanley Cup championships. At 21, he was named the team's captain, a post he continuously served until his retirement nearly two decades later. In between, he became one of the most prolific goal-scorers in NHL history. A nine-time NHL All-Star, Yzerman won numerous awards, including the Conn Smythe Trophy as the MVP of the 1998 Stanley Cup Playoffs; the Frank J. Selke Trophy, given annually to the league's top defensive forward; and the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy for perseverance in 2003.
"Nineteen: A Salute to Steve Yzerman" is a 192-page tribute -- through pictures and words -- to the former Captain and what he has meant to a storied franchise, teammates, a legion of loyal fans, and a sports-crazed city.
Others have published books honoring Yzerman's career, but none equals the quality of this fine-crafted tribute to the Captain and his lasting legacy. Each book is individually numbered, making a must-have collectible for every Red Wings' fan.
