Ben Chiarot was praised by coach Paul Maurice for his improvements during his time with the Jets.
He's been a steady defense partner for Dustin Byfuglien and it doesn't look like he's going anywhere. "Guys start thinking they've got to do more and different and all I said was play that game for the rest of your career and you'll never have to play another game in the American Hockey League," Maurice said. "That sounds nice and simple, but the consistency in playing that game is the real challenge." Jan 29 - 10:01 AM

Ben Chiarot scored his first NHL goal in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Chiarot added an assist and was also a plus-4 in the game. The 23-year-old has found some chemistry with his defense partner Dustin Byfuglien. Despite the solid offensive performance on Saturday, Chiarot probably won't produce points on a regular basis going forward. "Scoring against my hometown team on Hockey Night in Canada and the way it went in too — it worked out pretty great," said Chiarot after the game.
