Alex Chiasson found the back of the net in a 4-3 win against the Islanders on Thursday.

It was Chiasson's first goal and second point in 12 games this season. He might pick up the pace somewhat as the campaign goes on, but he probably won't be worth owning in standard leagues.
Nov 3 - 5:37 AM

Alex Chiasson skated with Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov at Monday's practice.

The Capitals may do some more line shuffling before they play at Vancouver Thursday night, but if he stays on the top line then it would present him with a good opportunity to get back on the scoresheet. Chiasson only has one assist and eight shots in eight outings this year.

Alex Chiasson will be a healthy scratch against the Maple Leafs Tuesday night.

The forward has yet to register a point in six games this season. Chiasson had 24 points in 81 games last season as a member of the Calgary Flames. Aaron Ness will also be a healthy scratch for tonight's game.

Alex Chiasson signed a one-year, $600,000 deal with the Washington Capitals.

Chiasson attended Capitals training camp on a professional tryout. The 27-year-old is now on his fourth different team in the last five seasons. He had 12 goals and 12 assists in 81 games with the Flames last season. He has no fantasy value going forward.

Alex Chiasson scored a goal in Saturday’s 4-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.

Chiasson is attending Capitals training camp on a professional tryout, so the goal definitely won’t hurt his chances of sticking around. The Capitals have plenty of star forwards on their team, but there are some openings on their fourth line. The 26-year-old had 12 goals and 12 assists in 81 games with the Calgary Flames last season.

The Washington Capitals have given Alex Chiasson a professional tryout.

The 26-year-old scored 12 goals and 12 assists in his first season with the Calgary Flames last year, but the team decided against giving him a qualifying offer during the summer. The Capitals currently have just 10 forwards signed to one-way contracts, which means there's a decent chance for Chiasson to earn a contract if he has a solid training camp. He has no value in standard fantasy leagues.
Sep 9 - 11:23 AM

Alex Chiasson can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Calgary didn't give a qualifying offer, so he could listen to other teams if he isn't signed by the Flames. Chiasson played in 81 games with the Flames in 2016-17, while producing 12 goals and 12 assists. He didn't have a point in four playoff matches.
Jun 26 - 5:52 PM

Alex Chiasson earned one assist and one goal as the Calgary Flames beat the Colorado Avalanche 4-1 Wednesday night.

With this pair of points, Chiasson snapped a 10-game streak in which he failed to earn either a goal or assist. This lifts him to 13 points and advances him over Denis Wideman on the Flames' leaderboard.
Jan 5 - 12:52 AM

Alex Chiasson replaced Troy Brouwer on the Flames' power play on Tuesday.

With Brouwer out for multiple weeks, it looks like Chiasson will get the first crack at filling that void on the man-advantage. Chiasson might be able to increase his production slightly, but this "promotion" still doesn't make him relevant in standard fantasy leagues.
