Former Chicago Blackhawks Star Chelios Still Wants to Play
HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. (AP) -- Former NHL star Chris Chelios skated Monday with the minor league Chicago Wolves and says he will probably sign a contract with the team this week.

Chelios is 47 years old. He says he doesn't want to "hurt the team" and wants to help his chances of "getting back in the NHL someday."

Chelios played 25 years in the NHL. A Chicago native, he played for Montreal, Chicago and Detroit.
