CALGARY (CP) – Team Canada captain Joe Sakic of the Colorado Avalanche will wear No. 91 instead of his usual 19 at the Turin Olympics as Hockey Canada honours Detroit Red Wings captain Steve Yzerman.

San Jose Sharks centre Joe Thornton also wears No. 19 in the NHL but he’ll go with No. 97 in Turin, Hockey Canada announced Monday in releasing the Olympic team numbers.
