Organizational Comments:
What GRC says: Summer 2018 Chelios brings a forward's vision and passing the the defensive role as he used to play both positions regularly. A tremendous skater with a top notch work ethic, Chelios is extremely fit and strong despite his light weight. Jake will play with a mean streak but is more known for his good first pass and ability to move the puck out of his own zone and up ice. He will be in tough to carve a spot out in the top four with the number of high end prospects, but don't count out the feisty defender who has continuously proven detractors wrong.

Role: Two-way Defenseman
Projection: AHL Top 4 Defender
