Thomas Chabot grabbed an assist and fired two shots on goal in Ottawa's 5-2 loss to the Canucks on Tuesday. The 22-year-old skated a game-high 24:51 in the contest.
The Senators may have lost five straight games, but Chabot's fantasy production continues to chug along at a solid rate. The third-year defenceman has managed to record seven points in his last nine games, bringing his season total up to 17 points (three goals, 14 assists) in 28 contests. Keep rolling him out there, because he's proven by now that he'll maintain consistent value no matter how poorly his team may be playing overall.
Thomas Chabot assisted on the goal that opened the scoring in Ottawa's 4-3 win over Detroit on Tuesday. He had a +2 rating with one shot on goal across 21:23 on the ice.
Chabot's offensive production has levelled out a bit. He recorded one goals and seven assists in the first 10 games of the season but has posted four assists in his most recent 11 games. All in, he's at 12 points in 21 games, but that's still about a 47-point pace - certainly nothing to sneeze at. Chabot continues to earn ice-time in all situations, receiving the third-most in the NHL so far (25:22). He has now posted an assist in back-to-back games, so maybe his downswing is coming to an end; he's always a worthwhile fantasy play while continuing to receive the opportunity that he does.
Thomas Chabot picked up an assist in Ottawa's 4-2 loss to the Islanders on Friday. The assist extended the defenseman's point streak to five games. He also contributed five shots, one hit and two blocks across a whopping 30:20 of time on the ice.
It's really quite impressive what this guy is doing given the poor situation he's in (Sens are 27th in goals-per-game, 31st in power-play efficiency and 31st overall). He has managed to maintain high-end fantasy production with virtually zero of it being propped up from the power-play. Chabot has eight points (one goal, seven assists) in ten games this season and has seven points in his last seven games. He's second amongst defensemen in shots on goal (33) and second in ice-time out of the entire league (26:29). If only the power-play production was there for the 22-year-old.
Thomas Chabot picked up an assist on the power-play and directed six shots on goal in Ottawa's 5-2 loss to the Coyotes on Saturday. He added five blocked shots and was a -2 during his game-high 27:50 on the ice.
It was only a matter of time before Chabot got something done on the power-play, but the production in that area has been disappointing so far. However, the same can be said for the entire Senators team as their power-play through seven games is dead last in the NHL, converting just once in 23 opportunities (4.3%). Hopefully this is the start of a run for Chabot. He has four points (one goal, three assists) so far this season.
Thomas Chabot recorded an assist, four shots, two hits and a block in a game-high 26:20 in a 4-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.
"Game high" is probably going to be a common phrase this season, as the 23-year-old defenceman ranks fifth in the league in ice-time so far. After putting up 55 points last season, Chabot is off to a slow start with just two assists through four games. The Senators power-play has literally been non-existent this season (0/8), so if/when things get clicking, a lot will be due to Chabot's impact.
