SBN Wisconsin Hall of Fame Nomination #6: Chris Chelios

This is the sixth of 10 posts revealing the Wisconsin Badgers' 10 nominees for possible induction into SBN Wisconsin's Hall of Fame. The nominees are revealed in order of most votes from the B5Q readership.

Just two days after Chris Chelios retired from playing hockey, he is now being revealed as the sixth Badger nominated for possible induction into SBN Wisconsin's Hall of Fame.

The former Badger hockey player enjoyed a 27 year career in the NHL and holds the league record for most games played. Chelios will now take a front office job with the Detroit Red Wings.

Before he played for four NHL teams (Montreal, Chicago, Detroit and Atlanta), Chelios played two seasons for the Wisconsin Badgers and helped them win the 1983 NCAA National Championship.

He went on to win three Stanley Cups in the NHL.

Chelios is the first former UW hockey player nominated and joins Barry Alvarez, Ron Dayne, Bo Ryan, Pat Richter, Alan Ameche and four other Badgers on the SBN Wisconsin Hall of Fame ballot. Ten nominees each from the Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Brewers, Milwaukee Bucks and Marquette Golden Eagles will also be featured on the ballot. Once again, all voting will be done by SBNation readers.
