CALGARY, Alberta -- Steve Yzerman will lead Canada's hockey team at a second straight Winter Olympics.

Hockey Canada on Monday appointed the NHL great executive director of the men's hockey team. Yzerman assembled the squad that won the gold medal at the 2010 Vancouver Games, and now he'll try to do the same at the Sochi Games in 2014.

He'll be assisted by a group that includes Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland, Edmonton Oilers President Kevin Lowe, St. Louis Blues GM Doug Armstrong and Hockey Canada staffers Bob Nicholson and Brad Pascall.

Lowe will be charge of Canada's team at the upcoming world championships in Helsinki.
