    Detroit Red Wings defenseman Chris Chelios said Thursday that he will be off the ice indefinitely while he helps employees of his sports bars cope with the stabbing deaths of two co-workers.

    Chelios spoke to one of the victims minutes before she was stabbed to death Tuesday by a recently fired employee who later confessed to killing her and a co-worker at the eatery, according to a police report.

    He said the deaths of 49-year-old Megan Soroka and 52-year-old Mark Barnard were "senseless ... and there's no explanation."

    Chelios was on the phone with Soroka minutes before her death and said she thought she heard a fight and was going to investigate, according to the police report.

This is all kinds of messed up. Feel bad for the families and I cant imagine what Chelios must feel.

A classy move by Chelios to not play while they deal with this and be there for them.

Also from a PR pov ofcourse. If he had gone on with his game it would make him look like a complete jerk.
Ofcourse an event like this is tragic, no matter how you look at it. It gets more attention because of who owns the place. If he had played he would be blamed for that.
So a classy and a smart move.

Or, maybe he's just broken up because of the loss of someone who meant something to him?
