Chiarot penned a three-year, $10.5 million contract with the Habs on Thursday.
Chiarot is coming off a career season in which he set personal bests in goals (five), assists (15) and shots (111). The 27-year-old figures to be a mainstay on the Montreal blue line, which will set him up to hit the 20-point mark for a second straight year.
Chiarot scored a goal and added a helper in Friday's 8-1 blowout win over the Hurricanes.
His goal came as part of a four-tally first period for the Jets, while the assist came with 19 seconds left in the game when Adam Lowry deflected his point shot behind Curtis McElhinney. Chiarot has a career-high 18 points (five goals, 13 assists), as well as 87 shots. He also owns 133 hits and 99 blocked shots this season, but the rather low point output limits his fantasy appeal.
Chiarot grabbed a helper against Minnesota on Tuesday.
With his assist, Chiarot set a new career best with 15 points on the year, having previous set a new career high four goals. The Ontario native is a depth scoring option at best, with his ceiling at about the 20-point mark. Given his limited offensive upside, the 27-year-old is, at most, a mid-range fantasy option.
Chiarot tallied an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 victory over the Rangers.
Since returning from injury, Chiarot is goalless in his last eight outings, but has racked up five helpers, 13 shots and 22 hits. The 27-year-old has a chance to reach the 20-point mark for the first time in his career, which is likely the most fantasy owners can expect out of the defensively minded blueliner on an annual basis.
Chiarot notched a helper versus Boston on Tuesday.
Chiarot -- who missed the previous four contests due to a lower-body issue -- has points in each of his previous two contests. Despite the recent scoring, fantasy owners probably shouldn't bank on the blueliner suddenly exploding offensively, as his ceiling is likely the 20-point mark.
Chiarot (lower body) will rejoin the lineup Tuesday against the Bruins, Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Chiarot's return to the lineup likely won't impact much from a fantasy perspective, as he has notched only eight points (four goals, four assists) through 45 games. Coach Paul Maurice has yet to decide who Chiarot will replace, so that may not be revealed until pregame warmups.
Chiarot (lower body) might be available for Tuesday's matchup with Boston, Matt Kalman of NHL.com reports.
Chiarot -- who missed the previous four contests due to his lower-body issue -- would bounce Sami Niku from the lineup if he does in fact suit up against the Bruins. The defender ended a 27-game goal drought in his previous outing, but will likely struggle to produce with consistency moving forward.
Despite earlier reports, Chiarot (lower body) will not suit up for Monday's contest in Philadelphia, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.
Chiarot will miss his fourth consecutive contest while Sami Niku enters the lineup in his place. His next chance to play will be Tuesday in Boston, but he'll likely wait until Winnipeg comes back home Thursday against Columbus.
Chiarot (lower body) is expected to play Monday against the Flyers, Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Chiarot missed three straight games leading up to the All-Star break, but the Jets should be back to full strength on the blue line in the next contest. Dustin Byfuglien (ankle) reportedly is closing in on a return as well.
Chiarot (lower body) will not play in Saturday's game against the Stars, Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
With a week off ahead, coach Paul Maurice has decided to proceed cautiously with Chiarot's health. As a result, Chiarot will wait until Jan. 28 against the Flyers to retake the ice, allowing Sami Niku to remain in the lineup for a fifth straight game.
Chiarot (lower body) will not suit up for Thursday's clash with Nashville, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.
Chiarot will miss his second consecutive contest as a result of his lower-body issue. Prior to getting hurt, the blueliner ended a nine-game scoring drought with a tally against Anaheim on Jan. 13. Once cleared to return, the Ontario native figures to slot back into the third pairing.
Chiarot will not play Tuesday due to a lower-body injury, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.
Coming off his fourth goal and eighth point of the season, Chiarot will leave the Jets down a man at the back end Tuesday. Fortunately, the return of Tyler Myers (lower body) from a three-game absence should ease the loss. While Chiarot's absence won't have major implications from a fantasy standpoint, the team will be without a strong defensive presence and a blueliner who is willing to be both physical (91) and to sacrifice his body (65 blocked shots).
Chiarot dished out six hits versus the Lightning on Sunday.
Chiarot is currently bogged down in a 10-game pointless streak, although considering his career high is 14, it shouldn't come as a shock to see the defender go long stretches without writing his name on the scoresheet. Formats which value hits and blocks could give the Ontario native mid-range fantasy value, but otherwise he won't provide much for owners.
Chiarot potted a goal and also managed two blocked shots and three hits in Friday's 2-1 road win over the Red Wings.
Chiarot has been one of the biggest surprises across the entire NHL spectrum. He's already unlocked a career-high three goals on 12 shots for a ridiculous -- albeit completely unsustainable -- 25.0 shooting percentage. Chiarot is on pace to increase his points output for the fifth consecutive year, yet he barely has any name recognition in the fantasy realm, so take full advantage for fantasy purposes.
Chiarot scored a goal and notched an assist in Monday's 5-4 overtime win over the Blues.
Chiarot also added two shots on goal, four hits and two blocked shots. His goal sparked the fire in helping the Jets' overcome a two-goal deficit entering the third period, and he assisted the game-tying score to Mark Scheifele less than three minutes later. He now has two goals and an assist through nine games.
Chiarot is averaging a mere 16:35 of ice time through the first two games of the season.
Only Joe Morrow is averaging less ice time on the Jets' blue line than Chiarot. Understandably given his minimal usage, the Hamilton, Ontario native has yet to put a shot on goal while adding five hits, two PIM and one block. The blueliner set career highs in assists (12) and points (14) last season and could struggle to reach those thresholds this season if he can't earn a more minutes.
Chiarot is averaging 17:20 of ice time in the playoffs -- over two minutes more per game than the regular season (15:17).
While Chiarot's play on the ice has certainly warranted more responsibilities -- he's logged more minutes shorthanded than anybody else on the team -- it is somewhat inflated by the continued absence of Toby Enstrom (lower body) and Dmitry Kulikov (back). In the opening-round series, the 26-year-old Chiarot had just one assist, but dished out 22 hits while blocking eight shots.
Following a run of five points in as many days, Chiarot is now bogged down in a three-game pointless streak.
Chiarot current stretch of offensive production is more the norm, considering he has never scored more than two goals or 12 points in a season. The blueliner needs just one more tally to match his career high and should have plenty of chances to do so with Toby Enstrom (undisclosed), Dmitry Kulikov (upper body) and Jacob Trouba (ankle) all still sidelined. Once (if) all threes guys return to the lineup, however, Chariot could find himself relegated to the press box.
Chiarot recorded an assist through 15:32 of ice time during Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Islanders.
This was just the third assist through 19 games for Chiarot this season, which obviously has him off the fantasy radar in the majority of settings. Additionally, he probably would slot in as the seventh defenseman if the Winnipeg blue-line corps were completely healthy.
Chiarot has been fined $3,763.44, the maxium allowable under the CBA, for butt-ending Anaheim's Corey Perry during Friday's 4-1 win over the Ducks.
Perry is known for getting under players' skin, but Chiarot clearly crossed the line during Friday's contest. The 26-year-old blueliner will want to keep his nose clean for the remainder of the 2017-18 campaign, as he'll be considered a repeat offender by the NHL Department of Player Safety going forward.
