Chris Chelios

The defenseman, whose NHL tenure is approaching Gordie Howe proportions, had a sentimental tenure with the `Hawks from 1990 to 1999. A Chicago native, he came home in trade from Montreal and anchored the blueline corps as the Blackhawks reached the 1992 Stanley Cup Final, where they were swept by Mario Lemieux's Penguins. Chelios captained the `Hawks from 1995 to '99, winning the Norris Trophy as the NHL's top defenseman in 1993 and 1996, before departing for Detroit in a trade. Fittingly, he returned to the Windy City in 2009 -- with the AHL Chicago Wolves -- in a bid to extend his career.
