Chris Chelios and his wife, Tracee are very happy that their son Jake is following in his father’s footsteps to becoming a professional hockey player. However, what is more interesting is he is seeking to make a name for him and not be over shadowed by his father’s achievements.

He also holds the record for the most number of games played by an individual on an international competitive level.
Jake, on the other hand is a talented player but is a long way from where his dad was. He has been showing potential and his dad has been helping him consistently. He has already begun playing professional and even played alongside his dad.
However, as of now he seems to be having a problem getting the adequate game time he deserves. This may be due to the reason that although having a superior physique than his father he is known to get complacent once in a while in between games.
His previous coaches have mentioned that when he loses attention and intensity he could be a huge drawback for the team while he holds a very important position on the ice. However when he is focused he can be without a doubt the best player on the pitch.
Jake has also been receiving insurmountable help and advice from his dad. Chris has said how he loves watching Jake play and he has been there for each and every game I which his son has played in.
