Chris Chelios is an advisor/special assistant to US Olympic brass.

Coach Cheli: Chris Chelios was on the ice Monday as a special assistant coach.

"He was outskating some of our guys today," Ron Wilson said.

The 47-year-old Chelios remains an unrestricted free agent looking for an NHL team that needs an experienced defenseman.

"He pulled me aside and said, 'You guys need a defenseman up in Toronto, don't you?'" joked Wilson, the Maple Leafs coach.

With NHL training camps set to open in less than a month, veteran NHL defenceman Chris Chelios still does not have a team to continue his career. Toronto Maple Leafs coach Ron Wilson, who doubles as the head coach of the United States men’s Olympic hockey team, relayed a story on Monday that the 47-year-old Chelios inquired about the possibility joining the Leafs.

Wilson said that Chelios asked the Leafs coach if “you guys have room in Toronto. I know an American coach would like an American defenceman. You even get this feeling that he thinks he can play with this team. He still wants to play.”
