Add another name to the Detroit Red Wings roster for the Alumni Showdown.
Former captain Steve Yzerman announced today that he will play in this year's Alumni Showdown as part of the 2013 Sirius XM Hocketown Winter Festival.
Yzerman wasn't sure originally if he would be able to do so, given that he has duties as the general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning as well as the GM for Team Canada at the 2014 Olympics.
The Red Wings have a large number of former players taking part in the Showdown, including recent Hall of Fame inductees Brendan Shanahan and Chris Chelios, as well as Nicklas Lidstrom, Igor Larionov, Sergei Fedorov, and Tomas Holmstrom.
The event will be held on December 31 at Comerica Park in Detroit.
