Red Wings general manager says Chris Chelios is going to work for the team

DETROIT - Red Wings general manager Ken Holland says Chris Chelios is going to work for the team.

Holland said Saturday night that Chelios' new job doesn't have a title yet and his specific responsibilities haven't been determined.

The 48-year-old Chelios played for the Atlanta Thrashers last season. The defenceman helped Detroit and Montreal win the Stanley Cup, won the Norris Trophy three times as the NHL's top defenceman, and was an 11-time all-star.
