CHRIS CHELIOS ADDED TO FOX SPORTS 1 TALENT ROSTER

Hockey Hall of Famer Serves as NHL & Olympics Analyst for FOX Sports Live, FOXSports.com & FOX Sports Radio

New York - Named to the Hockey Hall of Fame in July, NHL legend Chris Chelios is FOX Sports 1's latest addition, joining the new network as an NHL and Olympics analyst. He provides expert commentary on the NHL as well as prior to and throughout the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, across all FOX Sports platforms, including FOX Sports 1, America's new sports network launching August 17, FOXSports.com and FOX Sports Radio. The announcement was made today by Rick Jaffe, FOX Sports Senior Vice President of News. Chelios joins Michelle Kwan and Picabo Street, who were previously announced as FOX Sports Olympic analysts.

"I am excited to join the FOX Sports family and look forward to being part of a brand new network," Chelios said. "I am happy to have the chance to bring NHL and Olympic hockey into homes across the country, and I look forward to sharing my passion for the game with other sports fans."

"We are very fortunate to add Chris, not only a Hall of Famer, but one of the greatest players to ever play the game, to our roster," said Jaffe. "We believe his hard-nosed style of play on the ice will translate directly into his new role for our NHL and Olympics coverage."

Elected to the Hall of Fame in his first year eligible, Chelios played 1,651 regular-season games with the Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings, Montreal Canadiens and Atlanta Thrashers, more than any other defenseman or American player in NHL history. A three-time Stanley Cup champion, he is also a three-time winner of the Norris Trophy, given annually to the NHL's top defenseman, was an 11-time All-Star and played for Team USA in four Olympics, captaining the squad to the silver medal in 2002. He played two years of collegiate hockey at the University of Wisconsin and led the Badgers to the NCAA title in 1983.

Called the "best American-born player ever," by former Blackhawks teammate and current NHL television analyst Eddie Olcyzk, Chelios holds the NHL record with 266 playoff games and 24 playoff appearances. He accumulated 185 goals and 948 points in regular-season play with the totals increasing to 216 goals and 1,052 points including playoffs. Chelios was voted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in July and will be inducted in November.

Chelios retired from hockey in 2010 at the age of 48, making him the second-oldest player in NHL history. Following his retirement, he was named the Red Wings' Advisor to Hockey Operations, a position he currently holds.
