This news is a little old, but didn't see it posted here.

Chelios will be joinging the NHL/hockey team as an analysit on the new sports network Fox Sports 1, which is launching early tomorrow morning at 6am ET.

He's mainly schedule to cover the Olympics, but could see him on there from time to time for NHL coverage.

“I talked about that with the people from Fox,” Chelios said. “I’m going to leave it up to them. I can sit on the fence, I can be edgy. I think I can be charismatic.

“I’m going to start doing some telecasting from the house two or three months ahead of time.”

Should be interesting seeing what his personality will be like on air. We all know how much he loves the camera....

Will this new Fox Sports 1 channel give Hockey more airtime than ESPN? Like 5 minutes a day would be more airtime, but something?

Well from what I am hearing Fox Sports wants to beat out ESPN as the "leader in sports" so probably.

My question is, what channel will Fox Sports 1 be on, same with FXX because I can't miss The League.

It's 219 if you're on Directv. Channel finder based on zip/provider here: http://msn.foxsports.com/other/story/find-fox-sports-1-on-your-tv

Well, Cheli should be a lot more entertaining than, say, Jeremy Roenick. Of course, a slug would be more entertaining than he is.
