09:59 AM ET 11.09 | Chris Chelios is 51 years old, but that doesn't necessarily mean his hockey-playing career is over. Chelios, who will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday, said he has considered going to Europe to play with his sons, Dean and Jake, like Gordie Howe played with Mark and Marty for the Hartford Whalers. "My guys are seniors in college now, and if for some crazy (reason) they don't make it (to the NHL), which, realistically there's just not enough jobs, I wouldn't hesitate," Chelios said Friday. "I'm staying in shape to go to Europe, pick a good country and take my whole family over there and go play with them there. Like Switzerland, I've been there. Who knows? We've done crazier things in our family." Chelios later said he was joking. And he made it clear that he wouldn't trying to do it in the NHL or AHL.
