via Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press, “I don’t have a title for him, but he’s going to do a little player development,” general manager Ken Holland said. “After ’09 when I told him we weren’t going to re-sign him, I told him to keep in touch. He called me in May and told me he was going to take me up on my offer.”
Chelios played for the Wings from 1999 to 2009 after a Hall of Fame-worthy career with Montreal and Chicago. He spent the past season with Atlanta, but is now ready for the other side of hockey.
“He can really help us in player development and as an ambassador,” Holland said. “(Coach” Mike Babcock has told me there’ll be times during the year he’ll lean on him. To some degree, it’ll be an internship for Cheli.”
