Chris Chelios played an astonishing 26 seasons in the National Hockey League from 1984-2010.  He won three Stanley Cup championships (1986, 2002, 2008) and three Norris Trophies (1989, 1993, 1996) during his career 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 is the only player in league history to play in over 400 games with three different teams (Chicago-664, Detroit-578, Montreal-402).  Chelios was a second round draft pick (40th overall) of the Canadiens in the 1981 NHL Entry Draft.  He played seven seasons in Montreal and nine in Chicago before a trade deadline deal brought him to Detroit in 1999.  Despite arriving in the Motor City at the age of 37, he spent over nine seasons donning the winged wheel.  In 2002, at the age of 40, he appeared in his 11th and final NHL All-Star game, finished with the highest plus-minus rating in the NHL (+40), finished second in Norris Trophy voting behind teammate, Nicklas Lidstrom, and was named a first team NHL All-Star for the fifth time in his career.  Chelios played an integral role in helping the Red Wings capture two Stanley Cup titles in 2002 and 2008.  In total, Chelios appeared in 578 regular season games and 103 postseason games for Detroit.  He retired as the oldest U.S. born hockey player of all-time and the second oldest player in NHL history behind the legendary Mr. Hockey, Gordie Howe (52).  Chelios played the fourth-most regular season games in NHL history (1,651), the most postseason games in NHL history (266), ranks second all-time among defensemen with 2,891 penalty minutes, eighth all-time among defensemen with 763 assists and 10th all-time among defensemen with 948 points (185-763-948).  His postseason numbers include 144 points (tied seventh all-time among defensemen) and 423 PIM (first all-time among defensemen).

Chelios currently works in the Red Wings’ front office as an advisor to hockey operations.
