Chiarot has been ruled out for Tuesday's meeting versus the Flyers with an upper-body ailment, Brian Munz of TSN reports. Chiarot is not normally known for his offense, but he's registered a pair of goals and three helpers in eight March contests, including earning a point in each of his last two outings. Unfortunately, the 25-year-old's hot streak may get waylaid by injury. With four other blueliners out of action in addition to Chiarot, the Jets have called up Nelson Nogier, who'll slot into the lineup.
Chiarot scored on just one shot and 13:11 of ice time in a 5-4 victory over the Wild on Sunday. Limited playing time places a low ceiling on his fantasy value, but Chiarot does have two goals and five points in March. Chiarot has already posted a career high in points and will do the same in goals with his next tally. In deeper formats, Chiarot holds some value due to his strong efficiency in March.
Chiarot (illness) will suit up Saturday against the Flames. Chiarot was a game-time decision, but it looks like he will be giving it a go. Of course, he also only has one goal and nine assists this season, and he doesn't play on the power play, so his fantasy upside is limited.
Chiarot has come down with an illness that leaves him as a game-time decision for Saturday's home game against the Flames, Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. The big-bodied defenseman is counted on as a physical shot-blocker, having redirected 82 shots in 55 games this season. He's the type that will put up a helper every now and then, but you won't see a given fantasy owner slamming his or her fists on the table knowing that Chiarot could miss this next contest. If he is out, look for Julian Melchiori -- who was already set to fill in for the concussed Toby Enstrom -- to pick up a decent chunk of playing time on the third pair.
Chiarot collected two assists, a minor penalty and a plus-2 rating during Wednesday's loss to Pittsburgh. It was a rare noteworthy fantasy showing from Chiarot and also his first multi-point outing of the campaign. The 25-year-old defenseman averages just 15:17 of ice time per game and owns a disastrous 45.4 Corsi For percentage at 5-on-5, so it's unlikely he'll turn Wednesday's performance into a regular occurrence. It's safe to continue ignoring Chiarot in the majority of fantasy settings.
