10/23/2004 - Chris Chelios

CHICAGO -- Former Chicago Blackhawks captain Chris Chelios
says he is close to signing with the Chicago Wolves of the American
Hockey League.

Chelios said in a radio interview Friday that he has finally
resolved an insurance issue that had kept him from joining the
Wolves.

Chelios has a $2.5 million contract offer
from the Detroit Red Wings, who aren't playing because of the
National Hockey league lockout. He needed to be insured for that
amont in order to play for the Wolves.

The Wolves' management says signing Chelios still isn't a done
deal, but they expect him to be in their lineup Nov. 24 for a
home game against the Houston Aeros.
