Kukla's Korner Hockey

A Marriage Made In Heaven

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

...Yzerman, meanwhile, became one of a handful of NHL players that ended his career in the same place it began — in Detroit, with a Red Wings’ team that soon grew to appreciate all the things, obvious and subtle, that he did for them. Yzerman acknowledged that he didn’t know much about Detroit when he first arrived. He learned about their history early on, whenever Gordie Howe or Ted Lindsay dropped by the dressing room. In the end, he contributed greatly to that history, which is why Jersey No. 19 was raised to the rafters on Tuesday night at Joe Louis Arena, culminating a remarkable career that began as an awkward coupling - and ended up as a marriage made in heaven.
