Nikos Tselios (born January 20, 1979, Oak Park, Illinois, U.S.) is a former American ice hockey defenseman.

Playing careerEdit

Tselios made his NHL debut with the Carolina Hurricanes during the 2001–02 season, playing two games. Those would be the only NHL games he would play as he spent the next four seasons playing in the minor leagues. In October 2005, Tselios signed with KalPa of the Finnish SM-liiga and played with them until January 31, 2006, when he moved to Swedish Färjestads BK. He scored his first goal at Färjestad on March 25 in the semifinal of the Swedish Championship against HV 71. He then played in the United Hockey League with the Chicago Hounds before returning to Sweden, signing with HK Örebro in the Swedish First Division, the country's third-tier level.

Personal Edit

Nikos is a cousin of long-time NHL defenseman Chris Chelios and their last names are pronounced the same.
