  • Red Wings' Ben Chiarot: Delivers helper in narrow loss

    Chiarot recorded an assist in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Blue Jackets.

    Chiarot is on pace for a career-high 24 points in his first season with the Winged Wheel. However, we caution that this is based on the best-case scenario of the journeyman staying healthy the entire season, which we wouldn't necessarily count on given that he has a decade's worth of NHL service time without logging 82 games over a given campaign. Chiarot has added 87 blocked shots and 96 hits through 41 games.

  • Red Wings' Ben Chiarot: Secures helper in wild win

    Chiarot went plus-2 with an assist in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Penguins.

    Chiarot was resolute in helping the Wings claw their way back from a four-goal deficit and steal a road win. The 31-year-old was well rested since Friday's game against the Senators got cancelled due to severe weather, and he picked up 22:19 of ice time, including 1:46 shorthanded, in this comeback thriller. Despite having a decade's worth of NHL service time, Chiarot has never played an 82-game season, but he has yet to miss a game in his debut campaign with Detroit.

  • Red Wings' Ben Chiarot: Busy night in win

    Chiarot registered an assist, two hits and three blocked shots in Wednesday's 7-4 win over the Lightning.

    The Wings put an end to a six-game losing streak, despite only two of their defensemen -- Chiarot and Olli Maata -- recording points in the high-scoring affair. Chiarot has two goals and six assists through 32 games, which has him in line with his career average after stops between Winnipeg, Montreal, Florida and Detroit, respectively.

  • Red Wings' Ben Chiarot: Finds twine in Columbus

    Chiarot found the back of the net in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Chiarot has two goals and three assists working against a minus-5 rating through 18 games this season, which is his first with the Red Wings. The top-pairing defender has yet to produce a point at home, so he will have to pick up the slack at Little Caesar's Arena in order to be relevant again outside of deeper formats.

  • Red Wings' Ben Chiarot: Chips in with helper

    Chiarot notched an assist, five blocked shots, two hits and a minus-2 rating in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Sharks.

    Chiarot ended a four-game point drought with the helper. The 31-year-old hasn't done a lot on offense this year, but that's to be expected -- he's more of a physical presence capable of taking on top-four minutes. For the season, he has a goal, three assists, 36 hits, 32 blocked shots, 34 shots on net, 14 PIM and a minus-5 rating in 17 contests.

  • Red Wings' Ben Chiarot: Plays all-around game

    Chiarot chipped in five hits and three blocks during a 2-1 win over the Wild on Saturday.

    Chiarot, who is serving as a top-pairing blueliner, has focused primarily on his defensive responsibilities. The 31-year-old is mired in a six-game point drought but has found different ways to contribute. He shared the team lead in hits and tied for second in blocked shots across 22:04 of ice time.

  • Red Wings' Ben Chiarot: Gets pair of points for new team

    Chiarot collected a goal and an assist in the second period of Saturday's 5-2 win over the Devils.

    The 31-year-old defenseman struggled a bit in the preseason, as he failed to record a point through four games, but Chiarot has a respectable ceiling as long as he's skating on the top defensive pair with reigning Calder Trophy winner Moritz Seider.

  • Red Wings' Ben Chiarot: Getting situated in Motown

    Embarking on his first season with the Red Wings, Chiarot failed to record a point through four preseason contests, but he skated to a plus-2 rating over that span.

    Per Ansar Khan of, Chiarot is projected to start the new campaign on the top defensive pairing opposite Calder Trophy winner Moritz Seider. Last season, Chiarot set a new career high in points (nine goals, 26 assists) through 74 games between the Canadiens and Panthers. We recommend practicing patience with Chiarot while he gets settled in Detroit.

  • Red Wings' Ben Chiarot: Pens four-year deal with Detroit

    Chiarot signed a four-year, $19 million contract with the Red Wings on Thursday.

    Chiarot drew into 74 games split between the Canadiens and the Panthers in 2021-22, picking up nine goals and 26 points while averaging 22:51 of ice time per contest. The 31-year-old blueliner should continue to produce at a similar rate while skating in a top-four role with Detroit in 2022-23.

  • Panthers' Ben Chiarot: Slides helper Friday

    Chiarot notched an assist, four hits, four blocked shots, a plus-2 rating and two PIM in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Capitals in Game 6.

    Chiarot was held off the scoresheet in the first five games of this series. He ended that with the secondary helper on Carter Verhaeghe's series-clinching tally in overtime. To cover for the lack of offense, Chiarot's been solid with a plus-1 rating, 18 hits, 11 blocked shots and 13 shots on net.

  • Panthers' Ben Chiarot: Doing well in Florida

    Chiarot earned an assist, two blocked shots and two shots on goal in Friday's 6-1 win over the Jets.

    Since he was traded from the Canadiens, Chiarot has posted six points, 27 hits, 27 blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in 12 contests. The 30-year-old has taken on a top-pairing role with Aaron Ekblad (lower body) on long-term injured reserve. Chiarot doesn't have the same kind of scoring upside, but he's enjoying a career year with 24 points in 66 contests overall while adding plenty of physicality.

  • Panthers' Ben Chiarot: Dealt to Cats

    Chiarot was traded from the Canadiens to the Panthers on Wednesday in exchange for Ty Smilanic, a 2023 first-round pick and a 2022 fourth-round pick.

    One of the biggest trade targets is off the board, as the Panthers will get a defensive boost to their blue line in Chiarot. The 30-year-old has averaged 23:33 of ice time with 18 points, 110 hits and 91 blocked shots in 54 games for the Canadiens this season. It's unclear if he'll be ready to play in Thursday's game versus the Golden Knights or Friday's contest versus the Ducks due to immigration paperwork -- he could potential play his first game for the Panthers against the Habs on March 24 if his arrival is delayed.

  • Canadiens' Ben Chiarot: Sitting out Tuesday

    Chiarot will be a healthy scratch for Tuesday's clash with Arizona.

    At this point, it's fair to assume Chiarot has played his last game for the Habs and will be shipped out ahead of Monday's trade deadline. The 30-year-old blueliner has picked up 18 points, including seven goals, in 54 games for Montreal this season and should be capable of topping his career-best 21 points set back in 2019-20. With a minimal $3.5 million cap hit, of which the Canadiens could retain up to 50 percent, Chiarot should have plenty of suitors around the league.

  • Canadiens' Ben Chiarot: Adds another helper

    Chiarot had an assist, one shot on net and three blocked shots in Sunday's 4-3 overtime win over the Flyers.

    Chiarot, who picked up an assist for the second consecutive game, is rolling offensively right now. The defenseman has nine points over the last nine contests, which comes at a convenient time for the Canadiens. Chiarot is expected to be traded by next Monday's trade deadline, and his scoring run enhances the trade value Montreal can expect in return.
