The Florida Panthers acquired defenseman Ben Chiarot from the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for prospect Ty Smilanic, a first-round pick in 2023, and a fourth-round pick in 2022.
Ben Chiarot is on pace for the best statistical season of his career on a last place Montreal Canadiens team. Chiarot is now joining a very talented Florida Panthers team that currently find themselves at the top of the NHL standings. The big defenseman is all but a lock to further increase his point production.
Ben Chiarot found the back of the net in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the visiting Colorado Avalanche. He finished the game with one point, a minus-1 rating, two shots and two blocks.
The Canadiens were pressuring while on the power play and Chiarot unleashed a laser beam of a wrist shot that beat Jonas Johansson. It was the only goal they would score on the evening. He's up to five goals and six points but produces very nicely in hits and blocks with PIM upside if you need a streamer.
Ben Chiarot buried a pair of goals as the Montreal Canadiens would lose to the Winnipeg Jets 3-2 in regulation Monday night.
In his second game against his former team, Chiarot finally got some revenge with two goals. Unfortunately, he was unable to help lift the Canadiens up over the Jets as they would lose to them 3-2 Monday. In 43 games he has seven goals, 15 points, and a plus-seven rating.
Ben Chiarot scored a goal in the Jets 4-3 overtime win against the Ducks on Sunday. He was a minus one with one goal on one SOG in 18:38 of ice-time.
It has been 27 games between goals for Charot. In those 27 games he only had two assists. He now has four goals and four assists thru 44 games this season.
Ben Chiarot had a two point night in the Jets 5-4 overtime win over the Blues on Monday. He was a plus one, with one goal, one assist and two SOG.
Chiarot could be a fantasy asset if he received more minutes. Unless there is a long term injury to the Jets blueline Chiarot will continue to be irrelevant in fantasy.
