RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

Just two years ago, Chiasson was the centerpiece of a trade for Jason Spezza after putting up a 35-point rookie season, but after suffering through two progressively more disappointing seasons in Ottawa, he was moved westward cheaply to the Flames in June, and they signed him to a one-year deal. Now he’ll go to work as their third-line right winger, looking to put the past behind him and get back to the glory days. There’s most likely no big breakout coming here, but Chiasson could be helpful to owners in deep leagues if he can mesh well with third-line center (and potential star) Sam Bennett. Watch his shot rate early in the year – when he’s putting pucks on net consistently, he can be dangerous.

2015-16

Life in Ottawa last season turned out to be less friendly to Chiasson than life in Dallas the year before, as he experienced a significant drop in ice time and especially power-play time. Unsurprisingly, that resulted in a decline in offensive output, as he fell from 35 points in his first full NHL season to 26 last year. A big body at 6-foot-4, Chiasson hasn't quite learned to play a power forward's game yet, and it's again going to be tough for him to find his way into a more featured role this year, as Mark Stone and Bobby Ryan are locked in as the Sens' top two right wings.

2014-15

Chiasson was acquired from the Stars in exchange for Jason Spezza, and while the youngster is by no means as valuable to fantasy owners as Spezza, it doesn't mean he's not a good player. The winger is expected to get top-six minutes from the start playing alongside David Legwand and Milan Michalek, and skating along two seasoned veterans might be just what the 23-year-old Chiasson needs to take the next step in his game. He racked up 13 goals and 22 assists in 79 games for the Stars last season, and could have an even bigger impact in his sophomore campaign.

2013-14

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.

2012-13

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.

2011-12

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)

2009-10

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.
