The latest in a series on some of the top prospects of the Dallas Stars looks at right wing Alex Chiasson, who saw some time with the Dallas Stars late last season.

Chiasson made quite a splash when he was called up to Dallas from the Texas Stars after the NHL trade deadline, scoring six goals in his first six games before being sidelined with a shoulder injury.

He played primarily on a line with Ray Whitney and Jamie Benn, and he drew some strong reviews from Whitney, who said there was more to Chiasson than just the goal scoring.

“I know everybody looks at the goals, but it is his overall game that is more impressive,” Whitney said. “He gets goals by going to the net. He’s good with the puck in his own zone; he’s good getting the puck out of his zone, along the boards.”

Chiasson ended up playing seven games with Dallas, registering seven points (six goals, one assist) and a plus-three rating.
