November 12, 2021
Chiarot scored a goal on one shot and had two blocked shots in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Flames.
ANALYSIS
Chiarot got a first-period equalizer when he moved up from the point on the opposite side of the action, putting himself in position to bat home a puck that landed behind Calgary's Jacob Markstrom. It was the second straight game with a goal for Chiarot, who has four markers through 15 games and is doing a little more offensively this season as Montreal plays without Shea Weber (ankle).

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2014
Chiarot's first year as a Canadien couldn't have gone much better, as he had a career-high 21 points in 69 games. He was fueled by a 6.9 percent shooting rate, the best of his career, which means he's likely due for some regression. That slide may not be as bad as expected if he retains a top-pairing role alongside Shea Weber. Even better for fantasy managers -- Chiarot had 152 hits and 128 blocked shots, so he can make up for any dip in scoring with solid defensive metrics. He'll be available late even in deep drafts, but he's worth a look given his usage and the chance the Canadiens improve as a team in 2020-21.
Following a 2018-19 campaign in which he set career highs in goals (five), assists (15) and shots (111), Chiarot cashed in with a three-year, $10.5 million deal from Montreal. The 27-year-old blueliner figures to continue logging upwards of 19 minutes per game, which will set him up to reach the 20-point mark again this season, though he almost certainly won't be seeing any time with the man advantage, which limits his fantasy value.
Late last season, when the injury bug stung both Dmitry Kulikov and Toby Enstrom, the Jets deployed Chiarot as a reinforcement on the blue line. There was little use for his three assists over 16 playoff games in the fantasy arena but the left shooter solidified his reputation as a no-frills penalty-killer and steady sidekick to more established blueliners like Dustin Byfuglien and Tyler Myers. Fresh off a career-high 12 assists, 14 points and plus-15 rating over 57 regular-season contests, Chiarot is trending in a favorable direction and thus deserves consideration in the final rounds of deep fantasy drafts.
Last year, with the Jets facing a rash of injuries and Jacob Trouba’s lengthy holdout, Chiarot logged 59 games for a mere 12 points. Now that Winnipeg’s blue line is healthy and has young players like Josh Morrissey and Julian Melchiori assuming expanded roles, Chiarot figures to be watching from the press box on a regular basis. Of course, even if he makes a case to be in the lineup on a given night, the hulking defenseman’s limited offensive contributions make him a bottom-end fantasy option even in the deepest of leagues.
Skating with AHL St. John’s 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 doesn’t have as high of a ceiling as some of the Jets’ other defensemen prospects, but his ample experience in the minors probably ranks him high on the team’s 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.
