ROCKFORD, Ill. – The Rockford IceHogs are hosting NHL legend Chris Chelios, courtesy of Sportsfan1330, during their home game next Tuesday, April 2 at 7 p.m. against the San Antonio Rampage at the BMO Harris Bank Center. Chelios will be on-hand for the contest to meet fans and sign autographs.

Chelios played in 1,651 NHL games between Montreal, Chicago, Detroit and Atlanta during his 26-season professional career. The defenseman set the NHL record for most games played by a blueliner, was an 11-time NHL All-Star, won the Norris Trophy three times and helped his team capture the Stanley Cup in 1986, 2002 and 2008. He also helped the United States win the 1996 World Cup of Hockey and later won a silver medal with the Americans in the 2002 Olympics.

Fans can meet Chelios prior to the start of the IceHogs game along the jersey wall on the BMO concourse. The IceHogs will provide wristbands at each entrance to the BMO to a select number of fans on a first-come, first-served basis for autographs from Chelios. Only fans with wristbands will be permitted to receive an autograph.

The Stanley Cup champ will sign autographs beginning at 6 p.m.
