Joining Yzerman in the stamp series are Mark Messier, Sidney Crosby, Phil Esposito, Guy Lafleur, and Darryl Sittler.

“This talented group of star forwards has contributed to our national story beyond the goals they’ve scored and the trophies they’ve won,” said Canada Post President and CEO Deepak Chopra. “They are heroes for what they stand for. They are men of honour and character and represent the best of who we are as Canadians.”

Yzerman, of course, played 22 seasons for the Red Wings, scoring 692 goals and dishing out 1,063 assists, while leading the team to three Stanley Cups.
