Three time Stanley Cup and Norris Trophy Winner and Ex-Detroit Red Wing Chris Chelios skated with the Chicago Wolves, the AHL's affiliate of the Atlanta Thrashers.

Chelios said he hasn’t given much thought about being called up to his fourth NHL team.

“Right now, my thought is getting ready to play here,” he said. “I haven’t played for a while. Last year I only played 30 games at best. I’ve got a big challenge to prove to myself and a lot of people that I can still play.”

Chelios has played 25 seasons in the NHL and was the NHL's eldest player in the league last season.

I believe that Chelios still has alot to offer. From watching some of his games last season, he can still play well at the age of 47, and provides tons of experience and leadership for anyteam.

Good Luck, Chris.
