Pearl Jam breaks news of Chris Chelios’ Blackhawks jersey retirement: ‘Deeply honored to tell you’

Earlier next year, the Chicago Blackhawks will hang legendary NHL defenseman Chris Chelios’ No. 7 jersey in the rafters. 

The Hall of Famer and three-time Stanley Cup champion will be honored in a pregame ceremony at the Blackhawks‘ home arena on February 25, 2024. Pearl Jam was playing a concert at the United Center in Chicago and made the announcement about the pending jersey retirement during the show.

Chelios was on hand to watch his friend and Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder perform some of the band’s biggest hits. He made an appearance on stage for the special announcement.

Chelios also spent time working in the Red Wings’ front office. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2013.
