Who else could join Yzerman in Detroit?

Fans of the Detroit Red Wings were elated with the news that broke earlier this morning that a press conference had been scheduled at Little Caesars Arena, during which the team is expected to announce the return of Steve Yzerman as the team’s general manager.

But it doesn’t look like Stevie is the only one who is coming back to Detroit!

According to multiple reports, former Detroit Red Wings forward Pat Verbeek is allegedly going to be coming back to Detroit along with Yzerman.

It has also been speculated that Al Murray, who just completed his ninth season with Tampa Bay as director of amateur scouting, could potentially accompany Yzerman to Detroit. Murray was responsible for drafting Nikita Kucherov (128 points this season), Brayden Point (92 points), and goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy.

Murray also worked with the Los Angeles Kings and drafted stars such as Jonathan Quick (2012 Conn Smythe Trophy winner) and Anže Kopitar.
