Canadiens' Ben Chiarot: Hits leader through two games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chiarot had three hits and two shots on net over a team-high 23:04 of ice time in Saturday's 5-1 win over Edmonton.

Chiarot, who finished second on the team with 152 hits in 2019-20, has started the current season as a top hitter. He's recorded seven hits through the first two games, tying him with Nick Suzuki and Joel Edmundson. He lines up on the top pair with Shea Weber, so Chiarot should routinely receive in the neighborhood of 22 to 23 minutes of ice time per game. That will give him the opportunity to build counting stats like hits and blocks.

Canadiens' Ben Chiarot: Slides pair of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Canadiens' Ben Chiarot: Sets new career high
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Canadiens' Ben Chiarot: Feisty in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Canadiens' Ben Chiarot: Buries two goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Canadiens' Ben Chiarot: Active in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Canadiens' Ben Chiarot: Notches assist in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chiarot posted an assist, two hits and two blocked shots in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Blue Jackets.

Chiarot has just two helpers to go with 19 blocks and 10 hits in eight games since returning from a lower-body injury. The 28-year-old, a mostly defensive player, has 17 points, 101 shots, 116 hits and 99 blocks in 52 games this year, on pace for potential career bests in multiple categories.

Canadiens' Ben Chiarot: Held off scoresheet in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chiarot (lower body) managed two shots on goal and three blocked shots in 24:11 during Monday's 2-0 win over the Flames.

Chiarot missed two games, but returned with a large amount of playing time, which suggests it was just a minor injury. He's had a breakout season with seven goals, 15 points and 93 shots through 45 contests. His ice time has jumped nearly five minutes since last season (18:37 per game in 2018-19, 23:31 entering Monday this year), which has helped his production across the board.

Canadiens' Ben Chiarot: Gearing up Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chiarot (lower body) will play in Monday's game versus the Flames, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Chiarot missed the last two games due to this injury, but he'll return to the top pairing alongside Shea Weber. The 28-year-old Chiarot has already accumulated a career-high seven goals this year, and he's added eight assists as well.

Canadiens' Ben Chiarot: Will sit Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despite improving over the last couple days, Chiarot (lower body) won't be ready for Saturday's contest versus the Senators, John Lu of reports.

Chiarot's absence will thus extend to at least two contests, leaving Monday against the Flames as his next opportunity to return to the ice. Even if the blueliner can go, his 15 points (seven goals, eight assists) over the first 44 games and absence from the power play leave his fantasy upside limited to mainly just flier status in most season-long leagues and DFS lineups.

Canadiens' Ben Chiarot: Suffers lower-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chiarot sustained a lower-body injury and will miss Thursday's clash with Edmonton.

Chiarot has notched 15 points in 44 games this season and is on pace for a career year. With the 28-year-old on the shelf, Marco Scandella figures to see the biggest uptick in ice time while Cale Fleury will slot into the lineup.

Canadiens' Ben Chiarot: Lights lamp twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chiarot had two even-strength goals while seeing 20:13 of ice time in Monday's 3-2 loss to Winnipeg.

Chiarot lit the lamp twice in a game for the first time this season, collecting four points in his past 10 games. The 28-year-old is now up to seven goals and 15 points while averaging 23:38 per game through 43 games. Chiarot is on pace for his career-best season from a production perspective, even without seeing valuable power-play time this year.

Canadiens' Ben Chiarot: Scores in road loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chiarot scored a goal on two shots along with three hits and one blocked shot in Saturday's 5-4 loss to Tampa Bay.

Chiarot closed in from the point and was in proper position to take advantage of a rebound to score his fifth goal of the season. That ties a career high in scores he set while with Winnipeg in 2018, a season that earned him a three-year deal with Montreal as a free agent.

Canadiens' Ben Chiarot: Scores game-winner in OT
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chiarot scored a goal on six shots while adding four hits and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Senators.

Chiarot had a monster game, which he finished off with the game-winning goal in overtime. It was his first point in eight games and first goal in 21. He logged a healthy 25:50 of ice time and is averaging 27:22 over the last seven games. At 11 points through 32 games, he's on pace to set a new career high in scoring.

Canadiens' Ben Chiarot: Soaring ice time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chiarot had three shots, three hits, a minor penalty and finished minus-1 over 28:54 of ice time in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche.

Chiarot has seen his ice time spike over the last week, as he's averaging 29:04 over the last four games. Head coach Claude Julien has been working him, Shea Weber and Jeff Petry heavily in the wake of an injury to Victor Mete (ankle). The 28-year-old is pointless in his last six games but is executing in other areas with 19 hits and 13 blocked shots during that span.

Canadiens' Ben Chiarot: Another two-pointer with Weber
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chiarot had two assists, a shot on goal, two hits and a minor penalty in Saturday's 6-5 loss to the Rangers.

As has been head coach Claude Julien's inclination, he moved Chiarot up from the second defensive pairing to the top pair alongside Shea Weber. Chiarot's recorded two points in each of the three games that he's been paired with Weber. The 28-year-old blueliner has 10 points through 23 games, threatening his previous career high of 20 points in 78 games last season with the Jets.

Canadiens' Ben Chiarot: Dishes pair of assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chiarot managed two assists, three hits and a plus-3 rating in Friday's 5-2 win over the Capitals.

Chiarot had the primary helper on Shea Weber's second-period blast, and later relayed a pass from his defense partner to Tomas Tatar for the empty-net goal. Chiarot has seven points, 43 hits and 36 shots on goal through 19 appearances this season. He's mostly a defensive player, so his contributions on the scoresheet will be scattered, although he has produced five points in his last five games. Friday was the second time in the last five games Chiarot skated on the top pair with Weber -- he was also paired with Weber last week against the Bruins. Canadiens head coach Claude Julien likes to bump him up from the second pair against team's with a productive top line. The 28-year-old blueliner recorded two points in each of those games while skating with Weber.

Canadiens' Ben Chiarot: Provides scoring lift
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chiarot scored a goal on two shots in 25:03 of ice time in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Flyers. He added five hits and three blocked shots.

The Canadiens were being outplayed late in the second period, but the trailing Chiarot buried a juicy rebound for Montreal's first goal and the defenseman's second in as many games. He has three goals and two assists through 16 games. Chiarot was back on the second pair with Jeff Petry after being paired with Shea Weber in Tuesday's win over the Bruins.

Canadiens' Ben Chiarot: Pots winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chiarot had a goal and an assist while logging 23:13 of ice time in Tuesday's 5-4 win over Boston.

Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask mishandled Chiarot's shot from the left circle midway through the third period, and the goal held up as the game-winner. This was the first multi-point game of the season for Chiarot, who was moved from the second pair to the top defensive unit alongside Shea Weber. The promotion to the top pair was borne out of head coach Claude Julien's desire to shut down Boston's top line. By that measure, the move worked as the B's top line was minus-2 for the night; however, it also led to a three-goal explosion from the Montreal's blueliners. Victor Mete, who switched assignments with Chiarot, scored two goals.

Canadiens' Ben Chiarot: Leader in hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chiarot delivered five hits, blocked two shots and had a shot on net over 23:12 of ice time in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Coyotes.

Chiarot, who has returned to the second pair with Jeff Petry, has delivered multiple hits in eight of 12 games. His cumulative 30 body checks lead the Canadiens, and Chiarot's also among the team's leaders with 17 blocked shots. In short, he's doing all the things a stay-at-home blueliner needs to do to maintain a nightly spot in the lineup.
