Chiasson is not a dynamic or high-skill play creator, but he’s adapted his mindset to control what he can within a play. On the puck he has adequate positioning and can deviate off of initial pressure to create space, as opposed to being the player who will show creativity to move into contested ice. He’s got a base set of tools and is confident with the puck on his stick, exploring lateral opportunities and passes through sticks to find threats to inside lanes. His off-puck ability to read play allows him to get into prime real estate, where he was able to generate chances by playing in the shadows of defenders until he presents himself as an option. There is basic problem solving capability, but not an overall sharp mindset when it comes to creativity. He is seldom able to dictate the flow of play or divide and conquer opponents due to a lack of dynamic ability. From the top up he’s an adequate player with how he handles the puck and thinks the game at baseline level, but from the waist down he’s a work in progress. His poor ankle flexion limits the depth of his stride and his knees collapse in as he has no width through the hips. His linear speed is okay, but stopping, starting and lateral movements are a massive struggle for a lanky kid who needs to add muscle mass. His skating style leaves his torso a bit over his toes and unbalanced, and his weight at times can fall to the soles of his skates, which limits his dexterity. He’s an average passer through transition, and skill stacking and making plays through glides are something that will knock him back. His shot is lacking mechanical cleanliness. One of his bigger challenges is being able to catch pucks in motion or cleanly pick up passes cross-body, and that kind of hesitation can kill plays. He’s adequate in his own zone but not really a standout by a stretch.
