Michigan State product Jake Chelios — son of Hockey Hall of Famer Chris Chelios — has signed a deal with St. Louis’ AHL affiliate in Chicago, the club announced on Friday.

Chelios, 23, joined the club after four years with the Spartans and a brief stint with ECHL Toledo. In joining the Wolves, Jake will suit up for the same team his father did during the 2009-10 campaign, when Chris scored five goals and 22 points while splitting time between Chicago and the Atlanta Thrashers.

(The Wolves have switched affiliates three times over the last three years, from the Thrashers to the Canucks to the Blues.)

The younger Chelios — who, like his father, is also a defenseman — had 21 points in 36 games with Michigan State this season, and two in seven games with Toledo.

    I’m still wondering if the Wolves sold any tickets this year. Nothing against their team, but the Blues affiliate in Chicago? Sounds like disaster to me.

      haha i went back and looked at the PHT post when the Blues affiliated with the Wolves. the only comment on the article supports the fact that they probably didn’t sell many tix:

      “As a Peoria, IL resident I say “screw you” to the Blues and pour one out for the Rivermen.”

        as a blues fan I say “screw you” to the hawks and i’ll pour one out for the rivermen. first ahl game was last January and the rivermen beat the griffins. yeah st Louis beat Detroit in Chicago. hows does that sound for ya. maybe jake chelios will sign with the blues. like chris did with Detroit. man I love the rivalry we have with Chicago, st Louis, and now in the east Detroit. hopefully the blues/hawks meet in the 2nd round. I want this rivalry to get heated like in the days of Belfour and hasek vs cujo. roenick/amonte vs hull/oates. probert vs twist, bring it back. now its backes vs toews and bollig(st Louis native) vs reaves

      I thought you were making a Nick Diaz reference it first, and now I’m a little disappointed. It’s almost like I bought the wolf tickets you were selling

    When I was a kid, I saw Chris Chelios’ younger brother playing for a junior team. He was very small. I don’t know if he even cracked the AHL.
