Chris Chelios Enters the Hockey Hall of Fame

On Monday, the 2013 Class of Hockey Hall of Fame inductees will be inducted.

Former Chicago Blackhawks captain Chris Chelios, who was voted in on his first ballot, will be joined by Brendan Shanahan, Scott Niedermayer, Geraldine Heaney and Fred Shero.

Chelios was acquired from Montreal in the trade that sent Denis Savard to the Habs in 1990. He won two Norris Trophies with the Hawks and was a member of the Stanley Cup Final team in 1992. But how he is remembered by Blackhawks fans will forever be tarnished by his accepting a trade to the Detroit Red Wings.

Interestingly, Chelios is in a Blackhawks’ sweater in his profile photo on the Hall of Fame website.

    Congrats to Chelly, one the best hawks of ALL TIME. Still befuddled by “fans” reaction to his nite of honor (after re-watching tape above), as anyone booing this guy is clueless and should be sent back to moron re-programming.. Anyway, Chicagoan and one of my favorite players ever. Congratulations to Chris and a well deserved honor.
