TRIVIA – THE LONGEST CAPTAIN

By Ron Spence

Who is the longest-serving captain, of any team, in North American major league sports history?


Steve Yzerman

Prior to the 1986-87 season, the twenty-one-year-old was named the captain of the Red Wings, and continuously wore the “C” until the end of the 2005-06 campaign.

In Detroit, “Stevie Y” is simply known as “The Captain.”
