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

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 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 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.

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.
