Wisconsin product and former NHL star defenseman Chris Chelios was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame, it was announced Tuesday afternoon. Chelios spent two seasons with the Badgers, including the program’s 1983 NCAA championship campaign, totaling 22 goals and 75 assists.

Chelios, a member of the 2011 Wisconsin Athletics Hall of Fame, played for four teams during his 26-year NHL career, tying Gordie Howe for most NHL seasons.

Along the way, the former Badger became the all-time leader among Americans and defensemen in game played and made the playoffs an NHL-record 24 times – missing the postseason in 1997-98 and 2008-09. A three-time Stanley Cup champion, Chelios totaled 948 points en route to winning the Norris Trophy three times and making 11 All-Star Games.
