Chris Chelios will be back for another NHL season, as the 44-year-old defenceman has signed a one-year contract with the Detroit Red Wings.

According to the Detroit Free Press, the deal will pay him $850,000 next season.

Chelios will be entering his 22nd NHL campaign in 2006-07 and his seventh full season in Detroit.

In 1,476 career games, he has 182 goals and 925 points.

Chelios was a member of the Montreal Canadiens' Stanley Cup winning team in 1986 and became the first American-born player to win the Norris Trophy as the league's best defenseman in the 1989-90.

He won two more Norris Trophies during while in Chicago and led the team in points during the 1995-96 season.

Chelios helped Detroit win the Stanley Cup in 2002.

I am a wings fan and I do like Chelios. But he's 44 years old and his play had slipped a notch or two. This year he had 11 pts in 81 games. I dont know if this is such a good idea.

His physical play was what impressed me, and I will gladly take hims back.
