Chris Chelios - 1984 O-Pee-Chee

Christos Kostas Chelios (born Christos Kostas Tselios - January 25, 1962-) built a Hall of Fame career guarding the blue line for three of the NHL’s Original Six teams for more than 25 years and is considered one of the top two American-born defensemen the game has ever seen; the other being New York Rangers great Brian Leetch. Chris was born near Chicago where he excelled on the ice, but nearly had his hockey career derailed when his family moved o Southern California in his mid-teens. Chelios tried his luck north of the border, but was unsuccessful, being cut twice from Junior-B teams before he returned to California. Chris grew three inches, packed on 40 lbs. and headed to Moose Jaw where starred on defense for the Moose Jaw Canucks for two seasons, scoring 35 goals and 95 assists in 107 games. NHL teams finally took notice and the Montreal Canadiens drafted in the 1981 NHL Entry Draft (40th overall). Cheli then became a standout at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and with the United States World Junior team. In 1983, he helped lead the Badger squad NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey National Championship. Chris led a group of future NHLers in the 1984 Sarajevo Olympic Games, which finished out of medal contention before he debuted for the Habs shortly thereafter. Cheli was also a member of the 1984 U.S. team during the Canada Cup. He played only 12 games during the 1983-84 season, but appeared in 74 games the following year. Chris had an excellent rookie campaign 1984-85 as he scored nine goals and added 55 assists, finishing second in the NHL Rookie of the Year voting behind fellow Hall of Famer Mario Lemieux.

In 1985, Chris was named to his first of 11 NHL All-Star Games as he led Montreal to the Stanley Cup championship over the Calgary Flames. Cheli head a career year in 1988-89 when he was named co-captain alongside Guy Carbonneau of the fabled Montreal Canadiens, scored a career-high 73 points (he would match these numbers identically in 1992-93) on 15 goals and 58 assists while posting a +24 plus/minus rating. He won his first of three Norris Trophies as the NHL’s top defenseman while he also led the Habs back to the Stanley Cup Finals, only to fall to the Flames in six games. After seven years in Montreal (1983-1990), in 1990, Chelios was traded to his hometown Chicago Blackhawks where they welcomed they native with open arms. Cheli proceeded to take the Hawks to the Stanley Cup Finals in his second season in the Windy City, but Chicago faced the Mario Lemieux-led Pittsburgh Penguins who swept the Blackhawks in four games. He played eight and a half years with Chicago (1990-1999), where he won his second (1992-93) and third (1995-96) Norris Trophies, but assuming he was well past his prime at age 37, the Blackhawks traded to the Detroit Red Wings in 1999. Chelios proceeded to play ten more seasons with the Red Wings and led them to Stanley Cup championships in 2002 and 2008. In the 2008 Stanley Cup finals, he became the oldest player to win a Stanley Cup. He played in four Olympic Games over a span of 22 years and captained the United States Men’s Ice Hockey team to the Silver medal in the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympiad. Chris was a six-time NHL All-Star First Team selection and was named the Second Team twice. He played more career playoff games than other player in history with 266. Chris Chelios finally retired in 2010 with 185 goals and 763 assists for 948 points and posted a +350 plus/minus rating. In 266 Stanley Cup tournament games, Cheli scored 31 goals and added 113 assists and a +48 plus/minus. Cheli was inducted into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame in 2011 and then the NHL Hockey Hall of Fame in 2013.
