Finally, Detroit Red Wings general manager Steve Yzerman is on the clock after making his first major moves. Yzerman took over as general manager on April 19, 2019, and began his tenure with patience and observation. Many Red Wing fans ran out of patience with Yzerman’s methodical ways. But in the 2022 offseason, Stevie Y set off fireworks. First, Yzerman fired Jeff Blashill, who was stuck with the unenviable task of leading a roster blowup and massive rebuild from 2015 through 2022. Detroit missed the playoffs in Blashill’s final six years on the job.

New head coach Derek Lalonde arrives from the Tampa Bay Lightning, where he was an assistant and previously worked with Yzerman. Yzerman also made his first serious wave of offseason player moves that intrigued fans and gamblers.

Last year the Detroit Red Wings finished with a record of 32-40-10 and missed the playoffs for the sixth straight season. Detroit ranked 25th for goal scoring, 26th for power play efficiency, 31st for goals against, and 32nd for penalty killing.

Head coach Derek Lalonde, age 49, was an assistant coach with the Tampa Bay Lightning from 2018 through 2022. Lightning head coach Jon Cooper hired Lalonde while Yzerman was still the Tampa Bay general manager. Lalonde comes from an organization that made the last three Stanley Cup Finals and won them in 2020 and 2021. Jon Cooper is regarded as the top head coach in the NHL, which means Lalonde arrives with a strong education on the details of championship hockey.

Yzerman got high marks for his moves in the 2022 offseason. Andrew Copp arrives to provide a credible number-2 center finally. David Perron and Dominik Kubalik arrive to fortify the power play. And then Ben Chiarot and Olli Maatta will strengthen what was a thin defense. At the same time, goaltender Ville Husso arrives to offer Detroit a serious number 1-goalie.

Center Dylan Larkin, age 26, is the team captain. Larkin was the 15th overall pick of the 2014 NHL Draft by the Detroit Red Wings. He is a 2-time NHL All-Star, including last season. Last year, Larkin scored a team-high 31 goals, the second-best season total of his career. Also, he added 38 assists.

Left wing Tyler Bertuzzi, age 27, is coming off a career-high of 30 goals last season to go with 32 assists. Bertuzzi was a 2020 All-Star.

Ville Husso, age 27, had a .919 save percentage for the Blues in 40 games last season. His career save percentage in the NHL is .912.

Detroit Red Wings History

The Detroit Red Wings' latest Glory era was from 1984 through 2016, when they missed the playoffs only twice and won four Stanley Cup championships. Steve Yzerman was the superstar captain most of those years. Legendary Hall of Fame coach Scotty Bowman won three Stanley Cup titles, with Mike Babcock winning one. The Franchise has a total of 11 Stanley Cup championships and is also well known for boasting Gordie Howe as its marquee man in the 1950s and 60s.

The Red Wings opened for business in 1926 as the Cougars and rebranded as the Red Wings in 1932. Detroit is one of the NHL's famed “Original Six” franchises.

As an iconic and legacy franchise, the Red Wings have a host of Pro Hockey Hall of Fame players and legends. They also have eight retired numbers. Players with their numbers retired include goaltender Terry Sawchuk #1, defenseman Red Kelly #4, Nicklas Lidstrom #5, left wing Ted Lindsay #7, right wing Gordie Howe #9, center Alex Delvecchio #10, center Sid Abel #12, and center Steve Yzerman #19.

Yzerman now serves as general manager of the Red Wings after earning his executive bona fides with the Tampa Bay Lighting. Yzerman greatly impacted building the Tampa Bay powerhouse that won the 2020 and 2021 Stanley Cup championships.
