Chelios will try a new sport

By wire services
Published October 9, 2004

Some players have changed leagues during the lockout. Others have changed sports.

Chris Chelios, an All-Star defenseman for the Red Wings, will train with the U.S. Bobsled Federation in a bid to compete for Greece at the Turin Olympics, according to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

"I am looking forward to getting the experience of learning the ropes of bobsledding," he said. "I hope this is the first stepping stone on my way to making it to the next Olympic Games."

Chelios has won three Stanley Cups during his 21-year career.

DEVILS: New Jersey Senate president Richard Codey, who will become the state's chief executive Nov. 15, told the Newark Star-Ledger the state should withhold monthly payments of $268,000 to the Devils during the lockout. The payments are part of the team's lease. "To pay the Devils not to play is both ludicrous and indefensible," Codey said.
