2009 NHL Draft: Dallas Stars select RW Alex Chiasson with the 38th pick

Team: Des Moines Buccaneers (USHL)
Position: Right Wing
Ht/Weight: 6-3, 187
Shoots: Right
DOB: October 1, 1990

From the Des Moines Buccaneers, big right winger (6-3, 185) with a really big shot. Has improved a lot over the past year and loves to play around the net. Really likes to get physical along the boards, but also has good skill in the open ice.

He will be playing at Boston University next year, and will actually be heading out there tomorrow.

From his Hockey's Future profile:

Has a good blend of size and skill. Decent speed on his feet, but needs to work on skating, especially stride. Obviously needs to fill out his 6’3 frame. Can stickhandle through traffic with so much poise. Goes to the net, but will have to learn to get a bit grittier in close. Needs to be a little more patient in his own end. Likes to take off before team has secured possession.  There are some concerns about his effort level.
