Chelios Signs with Thrashers

Former Red Wings defenseman Chris Chelios has signed a two-way contract with the Atlanta Thrashers.  Don Waddell, GM of the Thrashers, says they want to keep Cheli with the Chicago Wolves, which is the AHL affiliate to the Thrashers.  

The contract will pay Cheli $700,000 from the NHL club and about $100,000 from the AHL affiliate.  

Barring injuries or setbacks in the playoff hunt, don’t expect to see Chelios on NHL ice anytime soon.
