Chelios to become second oldest ever
Chris Chelios' age Monday is 45 years, 347 days. That's significant because it's the exact age at which Moe Roberts played his final NHL game in 1951.
Chelios is currently third on the list of oldest players to participate in an NHL game, but the next time he takes the ice (Tuesday's home game against Colorado will be the first opportunity), he'll pass by Roberts for second place on that list.
Gordie Howe is the oldest player ever in the NHL, playing his final game at age 52 years, 6 days.
