Chelios to be honored by USA Hockey
By The Canadian Press

-- USA Hockey will honor Red Wings defenseman Chris Chelios tonight for becoming the all-time leader in games played among American players.

Chelios surpassed Phil Housley's mark of 1,495 games back on Nov. 24. In 23 seasons, Chelios has collected 936 points (182-754) in 1,540 games.

"We're pleased to honor Chris, undoubtedly one of the greatest American players of all time," Ron DeGregorio, president of USA Hockey, said in a release. "He's competed at the highest level for an extraordinary number of years and continues to be an extremely effective player."

The ceremony will take place prior to the Detroit-Anaheim game at 7 p.m.
