Chiasson, who was picked early in the second round by Dallas, number 38 overall, had been ranked #34 among North American skaters. Dallas blogger Brandon Worley interviewed Chiasson following his selection.
Stars scout Bob Gernander:
"He obviously has real good size (6-4, 187-pounds), and he is
a physical power-type of player. He's aggressive, big and
goes hard to the net. We saw him early last season and he's
really committed to becoming a good player. His skating has
improved quite a bit under J.P. Parise in Des Moines, and its gone from a concern into a positive for him. He's good down low and makes good decisions. He'll go to Boston University and we are really excited about his potential."
