NHL Central Scouting’s Jack Barzee
“Alex shows a real strong competitiveness and willingness to go to the net. He takes the hit to make the play, yet at the same time can stickhandle in a telephone booth and find the open man. Night in night out, he comes to play – the effort is always there.” Des Moines head coach J.P. Parisé
“Alex Chiasson is a big player, at 6’3”, he has tremendous size. Right now, he is somewhat heavy footed but has shown vast improvement since the beginning of the season and therefore his quickness has improved and is evident on the ice and in his statistics. He’s got a competitive attitude and has great potential as a professional hockey player.”
It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.
