Blackhawks to honor Chris Chelios

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks announced they will hold a Heritage Night for former Hawks defenseman Chris Chelios on December 17.

Chelios spent nine of his 26 NHL seasons as a Blackhawk, helping them to the Stanley Cup finals in 1992, and won three Norris Trophies (1989, 1993, 1996) as the NHL’s top defenseman.

The first 10,000 fans to enter the building that evening will receive a Chris Chelios Heritage Night hat.
