Yzerman downplays role at Alumni game

Steve Yzerman may have committed to playing in the Dec. 31 Alumni Showdown at Comerica Park, but he spent time in a television interview downplaying his potential role in the game.
“One thing I learned from Kenny (Holland) as a manager was to manage expectations,” Yzerman said. “Red Wings fans have to know I haven’t skated much in the last seven years, and I wasn’t that fleet of foot seven years ago. So, seven years later, let’s not expect a whole lot here.”
Yzerman was asked if he’s had any time to lace the skates up and skate.
“No,” he said. “Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to be able to skate before hand. If not, I’m confident those guys can carry the load.”
