Photo of Chelios on bench, stepping on stick

Rate this topic

34 posts in this topic

I was talking to someone today about the time that Chris Chelios drew a penalty while on the bench by stepping on the stick of an opposing player that had fallen into the Red Wings bench after being checked along the bench boards. The player, frustrated by Chelios' actions, punched him in retaliation.

I recall seeing a photo posted on LGW showing Chris' skate in the stick, but I've used a variety of search keywords, and cannot find it. Can someone please post a link to the photo?

I forgot about that.

Was it this same incident or another one where Cheli picked up the stick while sitting on the bench, but smashed the blade of it before handing it back to the guy?

I guess it was 2010 then?

Chelios was no longer with the team in 2009-2010. I can't positively identify any of the other players in the picture, so I can't narrow the data down any further. If that is indeed Lilja on Chelios's left, then the incident occurred between 2005 and 2007.

I thought that was Lils

It is Lils, the coach behind him is MacLean and the face just to the below right of Babs behind the bench is McLellan. 2006?

Looks like Lang holding the Vapor stick...

That's not Lang.

At first thought I kept thinking that was Ericsson then I realized it was Lils.

When did the Wild use those jerseys?

Lang used Koho. I have one autographed by him.

I first thought it was him as well, but realized that it was the wrong stick. Definitely Lilja.

Surprised it took you guys this long to see that it's Lilja holding that Vapor stick.

Didn't you recognize that ear protection he always used to wear?

I simply recognized his awesomeness and immediately knew who it was.

I think Yzerman is in the background. That would make it the 2005-2006 season.

I thought that was Franzen in the background.

And who's the Minnesota player?

Stephane Veilleux, possibly?

The Wild wore those jerseys 2003-2007. I see a ?9 on his jersey. Veilleux is the only possibility I think.

Thats Devereaux , making it the 2001 season

Neither Franzen nor Lilja played for the Wings in 2001.

And I'm pretty sure Babcock wasn't coaching us then.
