The Toledo Walleye signed the sons of former Detroit Red Wings defenseman Chris Chelios today.

Forward Dean Chelios and defenseman Jake Chelios both have signed contracts with the Walleye.

Dean Chelios had 14 points with two goals and 12 assists in 34 games as a senior. Jake Chelios had two goals and 19 assists for 21 points in 36 games for the Spartans.

Chris Chelios played in 26 seasons in the NHL, including 10 with the Red Wings. He played in the most games by any defenseman in NHL history (1,651).
