RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Ben Chiarot.
Skating with AHL St. Johnís for his third consecutive season in 2013-14, Chiarot totaled a career-high 20 points and 96 PIM, and finished with a plus-29 rating for the Calder Cup runners-up. He parlayed this strong performance into his first taste of NHL action, appearing in one game for the Jets. The 23-year-old Chiarot doesnít have as high of a ceiling as some of the Jetsí other defensemen prospects, but his ample experience in the minors probably ranks him high on the teamís shortlist of potential call-ups. But if he does earn a long-term stay in Winnipeg, he'll be destined for light minutes on the third pairing.
