(WNFL) - Chris Chelios has become the first Wisconsin player to be inducted into the Hockey Hall-of-Fame.  He was honored during an induction ceremony in Toronto last night.  Former players Scott Niedermayer and Brendan Shanahan also entered the Hall, along with ex-Toronto coach Fred Shero and Canadian women's player Geraldine Heaney.  Chelios played two seasons for the Badgers, helping the U-W win the national championship in 1983.  He left to join Team U-S-A for the first of his four Olympics in 1984.  Chelios played a record-tying 26 years in the N-H-L, winning three Stanley Cups and three Norris Trophies as the league’s best defenseman. He was 48 when he retired in 2010, after playing over 16-hundred-50 pro games, the most among American-born players.  He amassed 185 goals and 763 assists, and was an 11-time N-H-L All-Star.  Chelios said he owes everything in his life to his family, friends, and quote, "this great game of hockey."
