CALGARY - Steve Yzerman is going to lead Team Canada into the 2014 Sochi Olympics.
Hockey Canada has named him executive director of the men's hockey team for a second straight Winter Games.

He'll be assisted by a group that includes Detroit Red Wings GM Ken Holland, Edmonton Oilers president Kevin Lowe, St. Louis Blues GM Doug Armstrong and Hockey Canada staffers Bob Nicholson and Brad Pascall.
Lowe has also been put in charge of Canada's entry at the upcoming IIHF World Hockey Championship in Helsinki.
