Veteran defenceman Chris Chelios to talk about his plans Wednesday

DETROIT - Chris Chelios has a plan to talk about his future.

The 47-year-old defenceman says he'll host a news conference Wednesday morning at Cheli's Chili Bar and Restaurant in Detroit to answer questions just days after the Red Wings confirmed he won't be offered a contract to stay.

Chelios has said he wants to play next season.

He played in six of 23 playoff games this year for the runner-up Red Wings, extending his NHL records by appearing in his 24th postseason and 266th playoff game. He played 28 regular-season games.

Chelios is a three-time Norris Trophy winner as the NHL's top defenceman and 11-time all-star. The Chicago native and former Blackhawks player won Stanley Cups with Detroit and Montreal.
