Lidstrom Takes Yzerman's Place as Red Wings Captain

iWon - Sports News:
"The Detroit Red Wings selected defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom as the team's captain Thursday night before their season opener against the Vancouver Canucks.

Lidstrom succeeds Steve Yzerman, who wore the 'C' for Detroit for the last 19 seasons before retiring in July.

In his 16 seasons with the Red Wings, the 36-year-old Lidstrom has won three Stanley Cups, four Norris Trophies and the Conn Smythe Trophy as MVP of the Stanley Cup playoffs in 2002."
