Chris Chelios’ Career Likely Over, Ends in Ugly Fashion in AHL Playoff Loss

As if it wasn’t hard enough watching the legendary Chris Chelios patrol the blue line for the Chicago Wolves of the AHL, the 48-year-old made things worse on Tuesday night.

Chelios coughed up a loose puck in his zone and was easily beat by Jamie Benn of the Texas Stars, whose game-winning goal eliminated the Wolves from the West Division Finals in the Calder Cup playoffs. It also likely eliminated Chelios from the pro hockey ranks.

“I’m 99 percent sure that I think that will end it as a career,” Chelios told Chicago Breaking News after the 6-5 loss. “I don’t know if it’s the right time to say it, but it has been a great opportunity for me for (27) years. Physically it has caught up. I always said I’d go out when there was nothing left in the tank and I think I’m there.”

Check out the Chelio’s gaffe (beginning at 3:30) below.
