Jason Chimera LW WAS 1 Day

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.

Chimera scored the only goal in the Capitals' 6-1 loss to Buffalo on Wednesday night.

Chimera scored on a two-on-one feed from Kris Newbury in the third period. Chimera will look to replicate his career-year he had during the last season, but it is likely that his production will regress some this year. However, he should get some power play time on the second unit and should still have excellent chemistry with Joel Ward, so he may be worth a flier in deeper leagues.

Chimera assisted on the only goal of the Capitals' 1-0 victory over Buffalo.

Chimera played on a line with Joel Ward and rookie Andre Burakovsky during even-strength shifts. Although he has great chemistry with Ward, Chimera's career-high production last season is likely an anomaly at this stage in his career. He's worth keeping an eye on, but don't be surprised if his production declines this season.

Jason Chimera had a goal and two assists Sunday.

The three point night gives Chimera 12 goals and 29 points in 56 games this season. He really does not have overall value in fantasy pools as there are too many similar type players and Chimera does not distinguish himself in any one category in traditional pools.
