Chelios ready for Turin

January 14, 2006

Larry Lage filed this report for the AP this morning, focusing on Chris Chelios’ appearance in his fourth Olympic tournament.

Via the Pasadena Star:

DETROIT – Chris Chelios will be 44 when he suits up for Team USA at the Turin Olympics. And by the time most of his teammates arrive at the dressing room each day, Chelios already will have finished a cup of coffee and sat in the sauna.

“Some guys show up when you tell them to, like two hours before a game or a practice, but Chelios will be there three or four hours earlier than that,” Team USA general manager Don Waddell said Thursday. “I wish all players in the NHL had the passion and drive that Chris Chelios has for the game.”
