Chiarot registered two assists, a plus-4 rating and four hits in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Penguins in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers. Chiarot, usually a more defensive-minded player, had the primary helpers on goals by Jonathan Drouin and Jeff Petry in Wednesday's contest. Through 69 games in the regular season, Chiarot managed 21 points, 152 hits, 128 blocked shots and 61 PIM.
Chiarot chipped in nine goals and 21 points through 69 games before the league went on hiatus in mid-March. Both those figures are career bests for the 29-year-old, who has seemed to benefit greatly from increased usage in his first year in Montreal (23:08 vs. 18:37 in Winnipeg last season). Chiarot's 0.3 points per game aren't going to rocket you to a fantasy championship, but if your league counts defensive metrics, his 152 hits and 128 blocked shots make him a sneaky play in deeper formats.
Chiarot had one shot, four hits and 14 penalty minutes Thursday in a 4-0 loss to Tampa Bay. Chiarot was angry late in the game when he jumped the Lightning's Blake Coleman, picking up roughing and game misconduct penalties. He's not one to back away from the physical side of the game, but this action may have been due to the frustration caused by a lopsided game. Chiarot has 59 PIM in 67 games, three minutes shy of the 62 he had in 2018-19.
Chiarot scored two goals on four shots while dishing out four hits in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over Washington. Chiarot also blocked three shots as he filled the stat sheet in Thursday's victory. The 28-year-old blueliner tallied his first goal to take the lead just 30 seconds into the third period before sniping home the overtime-winning goal, giving him his second multi-goal outing of the season. Chiarot also matched the career high of 20 points that he set last season.
Chiarot had an assist, five shots on goal, one hit, four blocked shots and a minor penalty in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Stars. It was a busy night for Chiarot, who had a team-high 25:07 of ice time. Canadiens head coach Claude Julien put the pairings in a blender after the blue-line corps had a few rough moments during a three-game losing streak leading up to Saturday's loss. The assist was the first point in seven games for Chiarot, who has 18 points in 59 games, two points shy of the career-high 20 he had for the Jets last season.
