Chelios enters his 25th NHL season and his 10th with the Red Wings. He began his career with the Montreal Canadiens and also played for the Chicago Blackhawks. Last season, he became the second-oldest player in NHL history to appear in a game behind Gordie Howe.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SBG Global have made the Detroit Red Wings 10/3 favorites to win the 2009 Stanley Cup Finals. With Chelios back in the fold, the Wings have a great chance to repeat as champs.
Chelios has 948 points in 1,616 regular-season games.
Detroit also signed defenseman Kyle Quincey to a two-year deal. The 23-year-old appeared in six regular-season games for Detroit last season, alternating with the American Hockey League's Grand Rapids Griffins.
