Yzerman to be Team Canada GM at Moscow worlds

CALGARY -- Steve Yzerman will serve as Team Canada's general
manager at the IIHF world hockey championships in Moscow in April
and May.

"I really enjoyed my experiences in international hockey,"
said Yzerman, who helped Canada win gold at the 2002 Olympics. "I
enjoyed watching them as a young boy and participating throughout
my career. Being able to stay involved to me is very exciting."

He's currently a vice president with the Detroit Red Wings.

The 41-year-old Yzerman played in three world championships, two
Olympics, a World Cup, Canada Cup and world junior championship.

Canada finished fourth at last year's world championship in
Riga, Latvia, after losing a bronze-medal game to Finland.
