TAMPA — Steve Yzerman, the former general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning and star hockey player for the Detroit Red Wings, has put his Bayshore Boulevard condo on the market for $1.695 million.

The 3,316-square-foot unit in the Bellamy has three bedrooms, 3½ bathrooms, a study and two covered terraces.

"Featuring impressive designer finishes that rival new condo construction, appointments include wide plank wood flooring throughout, Restoration Hardware lighting, new plumbing fixtures and modern ceiling detail,'' says the listing by agent Jennifer Zales of Coldwell Banker.

Yzerman paid $1.395 million for the condo in 2016.

Considered one of the greatest hockey players of all time, Yzerman, 54, spent his entire playing career with the Red Wings. He was named captain before the 1986-87 season and retired two decades later as the longest-serving captain of any major league team in North American sports history. The seventh all-time leading scorer in the National Hockey League, he led the Red Wings to five first-place regular season finishes as well as Stanley Cup championships in 1997, 1998 and 2002.

Yzerman, a native of British Columbia, was inducted into the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame in 2008 and the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2009, his first year of eligibility.

After retiring in 2006, Yzerman worked as an executive for the Red Wings organization but left in 2010 to become the Lightning's vice president and general manger. During his tenure, the team reached the Stanley Cup finals in 2015, where they were defeated by the Chicago Black Hawks. That year, Yzerman was honored as the NHL General Manager of the Year, the first Lightning GM to receive the award.

In 2017-18 season, the Lighting made it to the Eastern Conference Finals before losing to the Washington Capitals. Last September, with a year left on his contract, Yzerman announced he would resign as general manager but stay on as an advisor to team owner Jeff Vinik. Earlier this year, Yzerman returned to Detroit as the Red Wing's executive vice president and general manger.

Yzerman also has represented Canada in several international tournaments as a member of that country's national hockey team. In 2002, he won an Olympic gold medal, making him one of only a few players to win Olympic gold and the Stanley Cup in the same year.
