Chris Chelios
Assistant Coach

Chris Chelios transitions to a new role with Detroit in 2015-16, working as an assistant coach on Jeff Blashill’s staff after spending five seasons as an advisor to the Red Wings’ management staff, while mentoring the organization’s young defensemen in Grand Rapids. As an assistant coach, Chelios will observe games from the press box and offer his insights to the Red Wings bench coaches during the games. He will also continue to play a role in player development by working on-ice with the team during practices. Chelios also accepted a position with USA Hockey and will serve as an assistant coach at the 2016 IIHF World Junior Championship in Helsinki, Finland, this December and January.

 Chelios retired as a player from the National Hockey League on August, 31, 2010, after 26 seasons with the Montreal Canadiens, Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings and Atlanta Thrashers.  He played the most games by a defenseman in NHL history (1,651) and was the only player in league history to play in over 400 games for three different teams (Chicago-664, Detroit-578, Montreal-402).  Chelios played his first NHL game on March 8, 1984, when the Canadiens hosted the Hartford Whalers and skated in his final game on April 6, 2010, when the Thrashers battled the New Jersey Devils.  For 26 years in between, Chelios accomplished a litany of feats that place him among the game’s all-time greats.  He played the fourth-most regular-season games in NHL history (1,651) and the most postseason games in league history (266), won three Stanley Cups (Montreal-1986 and Detroit 2002, 2008), three Norris Trophies as the NHL’s best defenseman (1989, 1993, 1996), finished second in Norris Trophy voting twice (1995, 2002), made 11 NHL All-Star Game appearances (1985, 1990-94, 1996-98, 2002, 2008), finished as a First Team NHL All-Star five times (1989, 1993, 1995, 1996, 2002) and a Second Team All-Star twice (1991, 1997), ranks 10th all-time among defensemen with 948 points (185-763-948) and at the age of 48, Chelios retired as the second-oldest player in NHL history behind the legendary Mr. Hockey, Gordie Howe (52).

Chelios also played an integral role in the development of USA Hockey during his illustrious playing career.  He would represent the United States at four Olympic Winter Games (1984, 1988, 2002, 2006), three Canada Cups (1984, 1987, 1991), two World Cup of Hockey events (1996, 2004) and once at the World Junior Championship (1982).  Chelios led the stars and stripes to a championship at the 1996 World Cup of Hockey and a silver medal at the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City.

Chelios lives in the Detroit area with his wife, Tracee.  The couple has two daughters, Caley and Tara, and his two sons, Dean and Jake, who each began their professional hockey careers in 2014-15.
