Expectations high for Alex Chiasson

Alex Chiasson sat in the Dallas Stars locker room after Tuesday morning’s skate and shook his head. He wasn’t on board with the math exercise that was taking place around him.

The exercise – poking fun at how expectations can get out of hand – involved a simple word problem:

If Alex Chiasson scored six goals in seven NHL games last season, how many goals would he score over 82 games if he scored at the same rate?

“70.2857,” someone answered after doing the math on his iPhone calculator. “A little pressure.”

“Not happening,” Chiasson said, shaking his head.

“But those are the expectations.”

“Okay,” Chiasson said less than enthusiastically.

The talk of goal projections is silly, but Chiasson knows there are high expectations for him after he scored those six goals in seven games with the Stars at the end of last season before he was sidelined with a shoulder injury. He knows his performance put him in a good position for this season, but he is not taking anything for granted and includes a roster spot.
