Alex Chiasson making impact for Stars

Alex Chiasson has watched the replay of his first NHL goal a few times. It came in Wednesday’s 3-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks and came off a nice set up off the rush by Vernon Fiddler.

“That was a special one. That’s a nice play, too. That’s a special way to score your first goal,” Chiasson said. “Fiddler made just a great play. I didn’t think he was going to give it to me, but he faked that shot, dragged that defenseman and put it right on my stick. All I had to do was celebrate.”

And there’s been plenty to celebrate for Chiasson recently. He scored two more goals in Sunday’s 5-4 shootout win over the San Jose Sharks. The second one of that game came off another pretty assist, this time compliments of Ray Whitney, who threaded a pass right onto Chiasson’s stick.

“It’s the Wizard, anything can happen with him,” Chiasson said after the game. “He put it right on my tape, I put it between the goalie’s legs and there it was.”

And here is Chiasson, in his first full professional season, making an impact for the Dallas Stars as they try to make a push for a playoff spot late in the season.

“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. All three of them are him driving 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.”

The 22-year-old Montreal native currently is playing right wing on the Stars’ top line with Whitney and Jamie Benn.
