Yzerman Returning

via Sportsnet,
Steve Yzerman will get the send off his career deserves, Sportsnet has learned. A rarity in modern sports, Detroit's first pick in the 1983 is expected to sign a new one-year deal which will allow the certain Hall of Famer to retire knowing only one team. Yzerman and Wings general manager Ken Holland will meet this week to discuss the team's direction, while at the same time ironing out what is expected to be a one-year agreement. The 40-year old Yzerman, who also intends to compete for a spot on Canada's 2006 Olympic roster, will easily surpass the mark of 1500 NHL games played, granted he remains healthy.
