Coyotes' Michael Chaput: Pens one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chaput inked a one-year, two-way contract with Arizona on Monday.

Chaput appeared in just two games for Arizona this year, in which he notched two shots, two PIM and three hits while averaging 10:01 of ice time. In the minors, the 27-year-old racked up 16 goals and 13 helpers in 47 appearances. Even with the new deal in hand, the center figures to continue splitting time between leagues next year, which will limit his fantasy value.

Coyotes' Michael Chaput: Heading back to bus league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chaput was sent down to AHL Tucson on Saturday.

Chaput was recalled Wednesday to provide depth after Brad Richardson suffered a lower-body injury. During the Coyotes' bye week, Chaput will get playing time in the minors. If Richardson remains out following the break, expect Chaput to be called up again.

Coyotes' Michael Chaput: Joining parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chaput is expected to be recalled from AHL Tucson on Wednesday, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Brad Richardson suffered a lower-body injury in Tuesday's game against the Sharks. With Chaput earning a call-up, it suggests Richardson may be forced to miss time. Chaput will likely serve in a bottom-six role that isn't likely to attract the attention of fantasy owners during his stay with the Coyotes.

Coyotes' Michael Chaput: Returned to minor-league affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Coyotes reassigned Chaput to AHL Tucson on Thursday.

Chaput failed to crack the lineup during his one-game stay with the big club. The 27-year-old will continue to be one of the first forwards Arizona turns to when dealing with injuries up front, but he won't have any fantasy value in 2019-20.

Coyotes' Michael Chaput: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Coyotes recalled Chaput from AHL Tucson on Monday.

Chaput has had a nice season in the minors, registering 10 goals and 15 points in 22 AHL games. His first chance to suit up in NHL action this season is Tuesday against St. Louis, but barring injury, he'll likely be stuck in the press box.

Coyotes' Michael Chaput: Bumped to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Coyotes assigned Chaput to AHL Tucson on Monday.

Chaput has been with the big club since Nov. 30 but didn't slot into a game. The 27-year-old forward has been solid in the minors this year with 12 points over 15 games, but his NHL opportunities could be sporadic due to the wealth of young talent in Arizona.

Coyotes' Michael Chaput: Brought up to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Coyotes recalled Chaput from AHL Tucson on Saturday.

Chaput's promotion indicates Lawson Crouse (upper body) likely won't be ready to rejoin the lineup Saturday against San Jose. The 27-year-old forward has racked up nine goals and 12 points in 15 AHL appearances this season.

Coyotes' Michael Chaput: Returned to minor-league affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Coyotes assigned Chaput to AHL Tucson on Tuesday.

Jordan Oesterle (head) is considered questionable for Tuesday's matchup with Calgary, so Arizona is sending Chaput down to make room for defenseman Kyle Capobianco on the roster. The 27-year-old forward failed to crack the lineup during his brief two-game stay with the big club.

Coyotes' Michael Chaput: Gets call to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Coyotes recalled Chaput from AHL Tucson on Sunday.

Chaput was dished to Arizona from Montreal at the trade deadline last season, and received his first call up with his new club. The 27-year-old will add some depth to the forward group, as he's played 167 career NHL games, potting six goals and 21 points in that span.

Coyotes' Michael Chaput: Dispatched to Coyotes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chaput was traded to Arizona from Montreal for winger Jordan Weal on Monday, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

Chaput was displaced from the Montreal lineup once the Habs traded for Nate Thompson and was moved to add some depth to the wing. With just five assists in 32 games, the 26-year-old center can be safely ignored in most formats.

Canadiens' Michael Chaput: Headed to Laval
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chaput cleared waivers and will rejoin AHL Laval, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Chaput's spot on the roster is taken by Nate Thompson, who was acquired from the Kings earlier this week. His greatest asset was his work at the faceoff circle, where he won 50.8 percent of his draws, second on the Canadiens.

Canadiens' Michael Chaput: Headed to waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chaput will be placed on waivers Tuesday, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

The Canadiens have not confirmed the move, but Chaput is expected to hit the waiver wire Tuesday afternoon. If unclaimed, the 26-year-old will report to AHL Laval.

Canadiens' Michael Chaput: Ends point drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chaput had an assist, a shot on net and three hits in Friday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

Chaput used one of those three hits to knock Artemi Panarin off the puck at center ice, triggering a sequence which ended with Tomas Tatar pocketing a rebound for Montreal's first goal. The assist snapped a 15-game point drought for Chaput, who plies his craft on the fourth line and is rarely on the scoresheet. The 26-year-old forward has five assists in 27 games.

Canadiens' Michael Chaput: Hit maker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chaput recorded a team-high seven hits in Monday's 4-0 loss to Boston.

Chaput is not known for his physical game, so consider the seven hits a bonus. He's been Montreal's best man on draws since coming up from AHL Laval, which could keep him around, but ultimately is utterly replaceable.

Canadiens' Michael Chaput: Starts streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chaput had the primary assist on Montreal's lone goal in Tuesday's 7-1 loss to the Wild.

Chaput has assists in three straight games, giving Montreal a scoring element on its fourth line. Coach Claude Julien has been pleased with the effort and production of his fourth line, so Chaput will remain in the active lineup most nights.

Canadiens' Michael Chaput: Nabs assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chaput had an assist, blocked one shot and won three of seven faceoffs in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Blackhawks.

Chaput has assists in two straight games and become a fourth-line staple for coach Claude Julien, who likes the 26-year-old's ability in the faceoff circle. Of the Canadiens' regulars, Chaput leads Montreal with a 58.9 winning percentage at the dot. That includes a 60.9 percentage in the defensive zone. He's essentially become the new Tomas Plekanec, but with younger legs.

Canadiens' Michael Chaput: Replaces Peca against Devils
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chaput started at center on the fourth line against the Devils on Wednesday. He finished with one hit and won eight of 12 faceoffs over 13:04 of ice time.

Coach Claude Julien hinted at changes for the fourth line following Monday's loss to Washington, and he followed through by having Chaput called up from AHL Laval. His faceoff work alone should get him in the lineup regularly. The Canadiens rank 30th out of 31 teams with a 45.9 faceoff winning percentage.

Canadiens' Michael Chaput: Summoned by parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montreal recalled Chaput from AHL Laval on Tuesday.

The Canadiens only had 12 healthy forwards on their roster prior to Chaput's promotion, so he'll round out the team's depth up front for the foreseeable future. The former Canuck has notched seven goals and 10 points in 18 AHL appearances this campaign.

Canadiens' Michael Chaput: Placed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chaput was placed on waivers by the Canadiens on Sunday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Chaput inked a two-year contract with Montreal this offseason and should head to AHL Laval if he clears waivers. The 26-year-old failed to record a point in nine NHL games with Vancouver last season.

Canadiens' Michael Chaput: Lands with Habs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chaput penned a two-year, two-way deal with the Canadiens on Sunday.

Chaput was traded to the Blackhawks one week prior to free agency opening, but they were unable to sign him to an extension. The 26-year-old pivot will have an uphill battle for NHL ice time, as the Canadiens have plenty of mediocre talents ahead of him. If Chaput can't make the 23-man roster out of camp, he'll head to the minors where he produced 42 points in 55 games last season.
