Chiasson has recorded two goals and one assist in 14 games this 2015-16 season. Chiasson's role has not changed from a season ago when he tallied 26 points. The third-line winger has averaged 14 minutes of ice time a game while only finding the back of the net twice on the power play.
Chiasson scored a power play goal in Ottawa's 4-3 win over Toronto Saturday night. Chiasson demonstrated break away speed getting behind all of Toronto's defensemen and finishing the job with an impressive top shelf back-hand shot lifted over Reimer's shoulder. Normally relegated as a utility player on the Sens' fourth line - Chiasson's goal demonstrates dynamic potential.
Chiasson remains a fourth line winger for Ottawa skating for less than ten minutes in Thursday night's win over Buffalo. Chiasson started the 2015-16 regular season where he left off last year - a utility player on the fourth line. Chiasson had zeros across the board in the box score Thursday night and was three seconds shy of seeing ten minutes of ice time. Status quo for Chiasson.
Alex Chiasson had no goals and no assists in the Senators last two preseason wins over Montreal.
Alex Chiasson was awarded a one-year, $1.2 million contract Sunday through the arbitration process, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
