More honors for Steve Yzerman

Granholm Declares Saturday as "Steve Yzerman Day"
Steve Yzerman was honored on the ice for the second straight Detroit Red Wings home game.

Gov. Jennifer Granholm declared Saturday as "Steve Yzerman Day," more than a week after Yzerman's No. 19 jersey was retired. The state did not honor Yzerman on Jan. 2 because it was the national day of mourning for former President Gerald Ford, who was raised in Michigan.

Granholm honored Yzerman "on behalf of young people everywhere who could never come to Joe Louis Arena and to those watching on TV for being an unbelievable role model," during a brief presentation before Detroit played the Chicago Blackhawks.
