Ed Belfour has more hockey in him

ed-belfour-chicago-blackhawks.jpgFormer Blackhawks goalie Ed Belfour, perhaps taking a page from the Book of Chelios, is eyeing a return to the NHL.

The 44-year-old likely Hall of Famer has reportedly been working out near his home in the Dallas suburbs and hopes to play next season.  His agent, Ron Salcer, confirmed that Belfour asked him to contact clubs to determine their potential interest, according to an article at ESPN.com.

In his 17 years in the NHL, "The Eagle" played 963 regular-season games with the Hawks, Sharks, Stars, Maple Leafs and Florida Panthers. His 484 victories is third all-time.

Belfour was in net for the Dallas Stars 1999 Stanley Cup victory.

Funny....Brett Hull was in the crease for the Dallas Stars 1999 Stanley Cup victory too...

Hull was in the crease but the Stars still won.

Get over it, its been ten years already.

Dale Tallon needs to sign Belfour if Khabibulin leaves. He is a good veteran for a young team and the fact he can get his 500th win (484) in a Hawks jersey in Chicago would be awesome. The fans would go crazy! I think he is good insurance for Huet and he can get the Hawks to the Cup.

All the free agency rumors today say Huet is gone and Khabby is staying. I think Belfour may have to stick to Co-Rec games at the local Y.
