The Remaking Of Dan Cleary

from Brendan McCarthy of the Telegram,

In the summer of 2004, Cleary began - at the urging of his new agent, J.P. Barry, and his best friend, Shawn Horcoff, a former Oiler teammate - working out with fitness guru T.R. Goodman in Venice Beach, Calif.

Goodman has been widely credited for extending the career of Chris Chelios, a 46-year-old Red Wings defenceman.

“Physically,” said Chelios, a teammate of Cleary’s in Chicago when the latter was a rookie, “I don’t want to say he wasn’t working, but it just took him a while to learn he had to apply himself conditionally.”

“I would have to go to that summer,” Cleary told The Telegram’s Robin Short when asked to identify the defining moment of his career.
