Alex Chiasson: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Chiasson enjoyed a fine start in the AHL (32 points in 53 games) in his first season as a pro and hit the ground running with six goals in seven games when called up to the NHL. Unfortunately, that promise was cut short when he suffered a shoulder injury that sidelined him for the rest of the season. He showed a nose for the net in his brief NHL stint and figures to compete for a spot on the top two lines when training camp opens. His size will help him get to the front of the net and there's 20-goal potential there if he can get regular time among the top six.
Chiasson may be the most NHL-ready of Dallas' forward prospects after completing a collegiate career at Boston University. He racked up 46 points in 38 games there last year and saw some brief time in the AHL late in the season. Dallas' activity in the free agent market should keep Chiasson in the AHL to begin the year, but he projects as a top-six forward as he matures.
Chiasson had a standout sophomore season at BU, leading the team in scoring and was 2nd overall in underclassmen scoring in Hockey East. He projects as a solid power forward in the NHL, something the Stars have been good in developing in recent years (James Neal, Jamie Benn, Steve Ott and Brenden Morrow)
Chiasson will begin his career at Boston University this season after being selected 38th overall by Dallas in the 2009 draft. He has plenty of size and strength to project to a solid NHLer, though there have been questions about his work ethic at times.
