The defenseman played Saturday for the Detroit Red Wings against the Nashville Predators in Game 2 of the first-round series. He is making his 23rd postseason appearance, extending his own mark.
The 46-year-old Chelios became the second-oldest player in an NHL game earlier this season. Hall of Famer Gordie Howe was still skating at 52 for the Hartford Whalers during the 1979-80 season - almost a decade after leaving the Red Wings.
Chelios has won two Stanley Cups, three Norris Trophies as the league's top defenseman and is an 11-time All-Star.
