Ben Chiarot and Paul Postma will be scratched for Saturday's match with Arizona.

While Postma has seen but two games this season, and we're nearly at American Thanksgiving, Chiarot has seen 13 games thus far. Unfortunately, he has two points, 16 PIMs, 17 blocks, and 33 hits in that time. Which is not enough to warrant a spot on your squad unless you're in a very deep league and are a Jets fan.

He’s been big part of what I do in the summers and my mentality going into seasons. He’s been really important for me."

Ben Chiarot has looked much more confident at training camp after skating in 40 games with Winnipeg last season.

You've done it before and it's just a matter of doing it again. Especially for a guy who was a fourth-round pick and had to grind my way here, you're used to the competition and it's never going to stop, really." He is trying to make sure he keeps a top-six spot on the back end entering the 2015-16 season.
