Chelios joining Olympic Team in off-ice role

The greatest warrior of all was Chelly. All I know is, I want him involved. - Team USA GM Brian Burke

Burke admits the role isn't yet clearly defined, but he's adamant on wanting Chelios involved.

Burke says that next week he'll announce more coaching staff members, as well as the approximately 30 players who will be invited to the August 17-19 orientation camp. Regarding the camp invitees, Burke says, "Some people are going to be shocked at the names that are not included."
