VANCOUVER -- Steve Yzerman can add another honour to his impressive resume. The former Detroit Red Wings captain was named to the Order of Hockey in Canada on Wednesday along with former womens national team captain France St-Louis and legendary university coach Clare Drake. Yzerman, who was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2009, won three Stanley Cups during his 22-year playing career. Now the general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Yzerman won gold with Canada as a player at the 2002 Olympics and served as the executive director of the gold-medal winning mens team at the 2010 Games in Vancouver. The 48-year-old has the same post heading into next months Olympics in Sochi, Russia. "It was an extremely pleasant surprise for me and really a thrill," Yzerman said during a conference call with all three recipients. "Ive loved being a part of Hockey Canada as a player and (in) management throughout my career in the game." The Ottawa native played five times for Canada at the world championships and was part of the countrys bronze medal-winning team at the 1983 world juniors. As a manager, he has also led Canada to three world championship medals -- two gold and one silver. Yzerman sits sixth all-time in NHL scoring with 1,755 points, ninth in goals (692) and seventh in assists (1,063). "Steve Yzermans career was unbelievable," said Hockey Canada president Bob Nicholson, who was on hand to make the announcement. "One of the best to ever play the game." Yzerman was nominated for the award by New York Rangers general manager Glen Sather, who coached him on the gold medal-winning 1984 Canada Cup team. "When he spoke about Steve, (Sather) was just saying that Steve was really a mentor for young general managers coming into the league," said Nicholson. "You just watch how hard he works, how he communicates to other general managers and how he communicates to his players." St-Louis, meanwhile, won five world championship gold medals in the 1990s and was the captain of Canadas silver medal-winning team at the 1998 Olympics. "When you receive a call from Bob Nicholson it might be good or bad news," St-Louis said with a laugh. "I was very happy to hear this announcement. "I realize how fortunate I am to be part of such an impressive group." Nicholson said the 55-year-old from Laval, Que. -- who will serve as Canadas assistant chef de mission in Sochi -- is revered in hockey circles in her home province. "(She) was such a leader," said Nicholson. "In Montreal shes seen as the Jean Beliveau of female hockey." Drakes credentials are equally impressive. The winningest coach in Canadian university hockey history with 697 career victories, he led the University of Alberta to six national titles. Drake also coached in the NHL and WHA, as well as internationally with both the mens and womens program. "Ive followed the work of Hockey Canada and I know the effort so many people have put into the game -- and I guess Im considered one of them," said the 86-year-old native of Yorkton, Sask. "I feel humble about that and its just a very big honour for me. Im very pleased about it." Nicholson said Drakes contribution to coaching in Canada cant be understated. "He was involved in the Olympics in 1980 but at the University of Alberta he really mentored Dave King, George Kingston, Mike Babcock, Ken Hitchcock, Tom Rennie ... the list just goes on an on," said Nicholson. "His record at U of A was something special." Drake was inducted into Canadas Sports Hall of Fame in 1989 and was appointed to the Order of Canada in 2013. "Our teams have always been quite consistent," said Drake of the national program. "Weve won quite a bit and weve lost occasionally, but weve never been one of those teams or organizations that were up for two or three years and down for two or three years." Yzerman, St-Louis and Drake will be honoured at a ceremony in Vancouver in June. The class of 2014 joins previous inductees Jean Beliveau, Cassie Campbell-Pascall, Wayne Gretzky, Gordie Howe, Gordon Renwick, Paul Henderson, Dave King and Mark Messier. Candidates for the Order of Hockey Canada are chosen "on the basis of their outstanding contributions or service to the growth and development of the sport of hockey in Canada."

Stewart waited right until the end of the final round to attempt his lap and circled the speedway at 195.454 mph to grab the top starting spot for Sundays race. Its Stewarts 15th career pole and first since Atlanta in 2012. "It was cool. Im not normally a qualifier," Stewart said. Keselowski made his attempt earlier in the session and turned his lap at 195.419. He was out of his car and watching the scoring pylon as Stewart crossed the finish line, and Keselowski dropped his head in disappointment when he saw hed been beaten. "Stewart put down a great lap at the end, didnt see that one coming," Keselowski said. "Thats why they do it this way. Really exciting and a lot of fun to watch, and quite honestly, a lot of fun to participate in this new format of qualifying." Kevin Harvick qualified third as two Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolets were in the top three. The organization is the only one in the Sprint Cup Series with two wins this season -- Harvick won at Phoenix and Kurt Busch won last week at Martinsville -- but the four cars have been all over the map and lacked consistency. "Tony capturing the pole is as good as iit gets for the organization," Harvick said.dddddddddddd "Thats a huge improvement for where weve been as a company the last few weeks." Busch qualified 11th as three of the four SHR drivers advanced into the third and final round of knockout qualifying. The final session was dominated by Fords as blue oval drivers claimed six of the final 12 spots and were led by Keselowski, who will start on the front row for the fifth time in seven races this season. Ford drivers Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards qualified fourth and fifth for Roush Fenway Racing. Then came Joe Gibbs Racings Denny Hamlin, the only Toyota driver to make it to the top 12. Trevor Bayne was seventh in his first appearance in the final group this season, and he was followed by Ryan Newman, Marcos Ambrose, Joey Logano, Busch and Jeff Gordon. Six-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson failed to advance to the final round for the first time this season. "Were really surprised not to have pace here in qualifying," Johnson said. "We have a very fast race car, in race trim especially. Our car is blazing fast. Qualifying hasnt always been my strong suit, and today it showed up here for whatever reason. "Well get her cleaned up and get her ready for the race on Sunday."
