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.
Joe Pelletier has a look at Roberts's interesting story.

1) Congrats to Chris as it take hard work to stay in NHL playing shape at any age, let alone when you get to be over 40!
2) As long as its not the 'Roger Clemens method' we're VERY impressed!
