Chelios was raised by Gus and Susan Chelios after his birth on January 25, 1962, in Chicago, Illinois. They lived in Evergreen Park, Illinois. He went to Mount Carmel High School in Chicago until his family moved to Poway, California, where he attended Mira Mesa High School.

Since Chelios was unable to compete in Southern California high school hockey, no American universities were eager to sign him. He received the only scholarship offer from United States International University in San Diego, the only NCAA Division I hockey team west of the Rockies.

When Chelios, a freshman in 1979, met bigger opponents with significantly more junior hockey experience, he realized he was in the wrong position. Finally, he was kicked from the squad, and he contemplated retiring from hockey.

Instead, Chelios tried his luck in Canada, where he was rejected twice by Junior B teams and hit rock bottom when he needed to borrow money from random strangers one year to return to California. He claimed that they would choose a local lad over a child from the United States because “I wasn’t any larger or any better than the other men.”

In 1984, Chelios made a permanent commitment to the Montreal Canadiens, where he excelled. His early attacking skills earned him the nickname “Soft Hands Chelios” from his teammates. He was invited to the National Hockey League All-Star Game after being chosen for the 1985 NHL All-Rookie Team.

His 64 points in 74 games was a stunning total for a defense even in the high-scoring 1980s, and he came in second to Mario Lemieux for the Calder Memorial Trophy. In nine postseason games that season, he had 10 points and a +17 plus/minus. Despite only participating in 41 games, he won his first Stanley Cup in 1985–86 while competing in front of Patrick Roy, the Conn Smythe Trophy–winning goalkeeper.

Specifically, Chelios retired on August 31, 2010. He was 48 years old. According to Ken Holland, general manager of the Red Wings, Chelios was hired that day to work in the front office. His duties as Adviser to Hockey Operations include working with the Red Wings’ defense prospects in Grand Rapids.
Both the 2014 Winter Olympics hockey competition coverage and Chelios’ hiring as an NHL analyst on FS1 were announced in 2013.

Christos Chelios and ex-Red Wing Brett Hull were added to ESPN’s panel of analysts for their analysis of the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, for which ESPN had obtained the U.S. broadcast rights after NBC withdrew due to scheduling concerns.

Records: Defenseman’s regular-season games played (1,651), Playoff contests were played in 266 games.

Since he joined the company, Chelios has played a crucial role in the King of Sportsbooks’ marketing campaigns in Michigan and around the country.
