Jason Chimera LW WAS 23 Days

Chimera tallied two assists, went plus-2 and gathered seven penalty minutes Tuesday in a win over Columbus.

A finely rounded fantasy performance from the veteran wing, who's managed a pair of two-assist efforts in his last four games, but otherwise hasn't found the scoresheet since Feb. 6 (and Jan. 14 before that). Even if hits play in your format, he's got marginal value in fantasy purposes; if they don't, he's bordering on useless.

Chimera gathered two assists in Wednesday's loss to the Penguins.

Chimera's inability to hold down a regular spot in the lineup has been his undoing this season, as the two assists give him just 14 points on the campaign. He saw only 9:33 of action Wednesday, and the trend of low minutes figures to continue with the Capitals unwilling to use him in a focal role.

Chimera scored his fifth goal of the season and had an assist in Friday's win over Anaheim.

Chimera had previously gone eight straight games without a point, so it's nice to see him back on the scoresheet. While he's only had two multi-point games on the season, he's skating on the second line, making him an interesting fantasy option in deeper formats. The 35-year-old has flashes of brilliance, but he's too inconsistent to be trusted in most leagues.

Chimera will likely be a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game against the Kings, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.

Aaron Volpatti (neck) is expected to play in a game for the first time this season, though he's been healthy for the past five weeks.

Chimera picked up his team's lone goal in Wednesday's 1-0 win over the Flyers.

With just four goals and six assists in 41 games on the season, Chimera doesn't score often, but he certainly made it count Wednesday. That being said, the veteran winger is still more valuable to the Caps than he is to any fantasy owners.

Chimera scored his first goal in nearly a month and added an assist for his first multi-point game of the season Thursday in an overtime win against the Jackets.

A rare offensive outburst for Chimera, who's followed up last year's career-high 42 points by getting off to the second-worst scoring rate of his career. He still has just eight points to show for 30 games, but has at least been a minor asset in PIM (22) and hits (59).

Chimera will be a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Lightning, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.

It will be the first banishment to the press box of the season for Chimera, who has produced two points over the Capitals' last nine games. The demotion is probably humbling for the 35-year-old, but doesn't seem like it will be something that becomes a frequent occurrence. Rookie Andre Burakovsky will replace Chimera on Saturday.

Chimera assisted on Eric Fehr's game-winning goal during Washington's 2-1 victory over Carolina on Thursday.

Chimera seems to be responding well to being demoted to the team's fourth line, as he has a two assists in his last two games. However, given such a reduced role, it's hard to recommend him outside the deepest of leagues.

Chimera contributed an assist in Saturday's loss to the Lightning.

It's just the second point in 10 games for Chimera, who is well behind the pace of the 42-point production he delivered last season. He's shown a propensity to score in bunches in the past, so it might be worthwhile to jump on him if he catches fire at some point later in the campaign. However, it's probably not worthwhile to roster him in most formats until that occurs.

Chimera got the only Washington goal through overtime Saturday night in a game they ultimately won 2-1 in the shootout.

It was Chimera's first point of the season; it came in his fifth game of the year. At 35, he's slowing down, but there is always a chance he might deliver depth fantasy scoring in matchup situations.
