It appears Chris Chelios has played his last game for the Detroit Red Wings.

According to the Detroit Free Press, Chelios will not be offered a contract by the team after meeting with general manager Ken Holland on Monday.

"I met with Chelios and told him we would not be offering him a contract," Holland told the Free Press. "He wants to play again. I really think that he does have another year in him. I think he can play 10 to 15 minutes. I think he can play on a third pair."

In 28 games this season, the 47-year-old Chelios scored no points with a plus-1 rating.

Over his 26-year career, the Chicago native has scored 185 goals and added 763 assists for 948 points in 1,644 games.
