Detroit Red Wings closing in on deal with Ben Chiarot

Ben Chiarot, who is 31, was originally selected by Atlanta in the fourth round of the 2022 NHL Draft.

In nine seasons in the National Hockey League, Chiarot has scored just 31 goals and has 87 assists in 489 career games.

Here is what the New York Post had to say about Chiarot as the free agency period approached.

From New York Post:

The 31-year-old Chiarot is a polarizing player, whose advanced stats don’t measure up to the eye test. After being traded to the Panthers ahead of the deadline, Chiarot had eight points in 20 regular-season games and just one assist in a 10-game postseason run.

Just prior to the start of the 2022 NHL Draft, Yzerman had the following to say about the upcoming free agency period.

“We want to try to use it wisely,” he said earlier today regarding the team’s cap space. “Because it can disappear in a hurry.”

“If there’s a player that we feel can make a very significant impact, we’re not afraid to do that in free agency,” he said. “Some of the things we weigh are, how much does that player help us today, tomorrow and three, four years down the road? What’s the cost of acquiring that player? And does the cost of acquiring that player make sense for where we hope to be in three or four years? Or are we just spending a whole lot of money and not going to be much different in three or four years, whether that player is here or helps get us there, and is there a more efficient way to get there at the end of the day?

“So we weigh it all out, and that’s for short-term contracts and long-term contracts.”
