I haven't read or heard anything about Chris Chelios being named captain of Team USA. As a matter of fact, I saw an interview with Mike Modano a few days ago and the interviewer stated Modano probably would be the captain of Team USA; Mike reponded with a "We'll see".
from the Detroit News
Also last month, not really expecting to even be selected, Chelios instead wasn't just named to the U.S. Olympic team, but was chosen as the team's captain.
If Chelios stays healthy and is on the ice for the February Olympics, he would be, along with St. Louis' Keith Tkachuk, the first four-time U.S. Olympians in hockey.
"If you would've said 10 years ago that I'd be playing at this level, I would've doubted it very much," Chelios said.
