Steve Yzerman will be appointed executive director of Canada's hockey team for the 2010 Vancouver Games.
The Detroit Red Wings executive replaces Wayne Gretzky, who held the job for the past two Olympics.
Hockey Canada plans to introduce its management staff for the Winter Games Saturday in Ottawa.
Yzerman is in his third season as a Red Wings vice president. He has served as Canada's GM at the last two IIHF World Hockey Championships.
Those Canadian teams combined for a 17-1 record, winning a gold medal in 2007 and a silver last May.
