Top scorer Chiasson bags three-year Stars contract

As anticipated, junior forward Alex Chiasson has signed a three-year contract with the Dallas Star, who had made him their second-round draft choice in 2009. He’ll report to the AHL Texas Stars. Dallas, which also signed Miami’s Reilly Smith and Colgate’s Austin Smith, has former BU captain Dan Spang on its roster. If Chiasson is in the lineup tonight, he’ll see a familiar face across the ice in David Quinn, the Lake Erie Monsters' coach, who recruited him to BU, along with former Terriers Zach Cohen and David Vander Gulik.

Chiasson talked with the Daily Free Press about making his decision to turn pro after consulting with Coach Jack Parker and about his three-year experience at BU.
