Steve Yzerman is coming home to Hockey Town as the new General Manager for the Red Wings.

The official announcement is expected later today at a 3pm press conference. Chris Illitch and Ken Holland are going to lead the presser, where Stevey Y  will be named the GM.

This is exactly what the Red Wings need right now. The team hasn't been terrible, but they have not been the Red Wings that Detroit hockey fans have come to expect.

Yzerman is one of the most popular men to ever wear the Red Wings jersey, winning three Stanley Cups in Detroit.

It's hard to say that someone in the front office can really have that big of an impact on the ice, but his track record in Tampa Bay shows that Detroit fans can expect good things.

Even if the turnaround is slow, just the fact that Yzerman is coming back to Detroit is enough to lift all Red Wings fans spirits.
