Chelios signs on for another year
Chelios has played in 400-plus games for three different teams and won Stanley Cups in Montreal and Detroit.
DETROIT -- The Red Wings announced today that the team has re-signed defenseman Chris Chelios to a one-year contract.

"Chris is coming off another outstanding season and was one of the best defenseman on any team through three rounds of the Stanley Cup Playoffs," general manager Ken Holland said. "He has taken conditioning to a new level and has set the standard for how today's professional athlete trains year-around in order to compete at an elite level.

"In addition to his high level of play, Chris's experience and leadership are second-to-none. We're very happy to have him signed to play in Detroit for another season."

Chelios, 45, just completed his 23rd season in the NHL. He appeared in 71 games, compiling 11 assists with 34 penalty minutes. As the NHL's oldest player, he led Detroit defensemen with a plus-seven rating and ranked fifth among all defensemen during the 2007 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

He played a major role in Detroit's run to the Western Conference finals, collecting one goal and six assists in 18 games. Chelios also led the Red Wings in shorthanded time on ice, logging an average of 5:10 per game.

He is the NHL's all-time leader in post-season appearances (22), and ranks second all-time in playoff games played (246), behind Patrick Roy (247).

The three-time Norris Trophy winner (1989, 1993, 1996) leads all American-born players in games played (1,547) and ranks ninth all-time. He is the only player in NHL history to play 400 games for three different teams, skating in 402 games with the Montreal Canadians, 664 with the Chicago Blackhawks and 481 with Detroit.

Chelios is a two-time Stanley Cup champion, capturing it with Montreal in 1986 and with Detroit in 2002. Internationally, the Chicago native has played for USA Hockey four times in the Olympics (1984, 1998, 2002, 2006).

Despite all of his success on the ice, Chelios may be most revered for his character and involvement in the community. The NHL recognized Chelios in 2007 with the Mark Messier Leadership Award, an honor given for exemplary performance on the ice and charitable works.
