Red Wings Confirm Chelios Won't Return
Posted June 22, 2009 - 05:03 PM
"It was kind of understood last summer, after Cheli signed, that the 2008-09 season would be the last one for Cheli as a Red Wing," said Red Wings GM Ken Holland. "He wants to play another season and I believe he can still play."
Chelios, 47, played ten seasons for the Red Wings, joining the team from the Chicago Blackhawks at the 1999 trade deadline. The three-time Norris Trophy winner as the NHL's best defenseman is the second-oldest active player in NHL history behind Gordie Howe. His 25 seasons played are tied for most in NHL history with Howe and Mark Messier.
