Chimera Tallies Two Points For Caps

News: Jason 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.
Analysis: A rare offensive outburst for Jason 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).

Caps To Make Chimera A Healthy Scratch

News: Jason Chimera will be a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Lightning, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: It will be the first banishment to the press box of the season for Jason 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.

Caps' Chimera Gets Assist In Thursday's Win

News: Jason Chimera assisted on Eric Fehr's game-winning goal during Washington's 2-1 victory over Carolina on Thursday.
Analysis: Jason Chimera seems to be responding well to being demoted to the team's fourth line, as he has two assists in his last two games. However, given such a reduced role, it's hard to recommend him outside the deepest of leagues.

Caps' Chimera Scuffling Early On

News: Jason Chimera contributed an assist in Saturday's loss to the Lightning.
Analysis: It's just the second point in 10 games for Jason 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.

Caps' Chimera Gets First Goal Of Season

News: Jason Chimera got the only Washington goal through overtime Saturday night in a game the Capitals ultimately won 2-1 in a shootout.
Analysis: It was Jason 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.

Caps' Chimera Has Lone Goal In Wednesday's Loss

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

Caps' Chimera Tallies Assist In Sunday's 1-0 Win

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

Caps' Chimera To Play At World Championships

News: Jason Chimera will represent Canada at the 2014 IIHF World Championships in Belarus, according to a team press release
Analysis: Jason Chimera, who finished the 2013-14 NHL season with a career-high 15 goals and 27 assists in 82 games, will join Troy Brouwer and linemate Joel Ward on Team Canada for the upcoming tournament in Minsk. Chimera and Ward formed a dynamic duo on the team's third line this season, with Eric Fehr centering the two for much of the Capitals' disappointing season. Most importantly, the 6-foot-3, 216-pound winger seemed to redeem himself from a very disappointing lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign in which he only netted three goals in 47 games. With changes likely in store for the Capitals' management and coaching staff, it's difficult to forecast Chimera's value heading into next season. His fantastic chemistry with Ward should be enough to keep him on the radar for drafts in deeper leagues regardless of how the offseason shakes out.

Caps Chimera Busts Slump With Three-Point Night

News: Jason Chimera busted out with a goal, two assists and a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: Jason Chimera had been mired in a slump over his past nine games, recording one point (a goal) and a minus-2 rating, but he broke out big time in this one. He now owns a new career high in points -- 41.

Points Trickling In Steadily For Caps' Chimera

News: Jason Chimera has supplied points in seven of his nine games in March for the Capitals.
Analysis: While Jason Chimera is averaging almost three shots per game this month and has seen his productivity increase accordingly, fantasy owners should be cautioned not to invest too much of their free agent bidding budget on the forward. We saw Chimera enjoy a similar scoring binge in late October and early November, only for his offense to take a nosedive thereafter. His latest scoring surge could very well come to an end quickly.

Three-Point Game For Caps' Chimera

News: Jason Chimera notched a goal and two assists in Sunday's 6-5 victory over the Red Wings.
Analysis: Since going on a nine-point scoring binge across four games in late October and early November, Jason Chimera's production has generally been more muted, but it looks like he could be starting to pay dividends again for those who might have stuck with him. He also supplied a goal in Friday's loss to Detroit, and has a respectable 29 points in 56 games on the season.

Chimera Nets 11th Goal Friday

News: Jason Chimera scored his 11th goal of the season during Friday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Red Wings on Friday.
Analysis: Jason Chimera opened the scoring on the night with a power-play goal late in the opening period. He now has two goals and an assist in his last five games and has 11 goals and 15 assists on the season.

Chimera On Board For Caps

News: Jason Chimera scored Washington's only goal in Friday's 2-1 loss to New Jersey, his first goal in three games.
Analysis: Jason Chimera hit the double-digit goal mark for the Caps Friday with a deft deflection close to the crease. He's going to see scoring chances for Washington but likely won't light up the scoreboard.

Capitals' Chimera Promoted To Second Line

News: Jason Chimera skated on the Capitals' second line with Mikhail Grabovski and Troy Brouwer during Saturday's practice, Monumental Network's Mike Vogel reports.
Analysis: The Capitals underwent some extensive line juggling during Friday night's embarrassing 5-1 defeat at the hands of Columbus. While getting promoted to the second line is usually a good thing, Jason Chimera had great chemistry with Joel Ward on the the third line for much of the season. How the two respond to the change will be seen when the Capitals take on the Rangers on Sunday afternoon. It's worth noting that Chimera played well with Grabovski earlier in the season, so he has some upside if this unit can stay together for a while.

Career Season For Caps' Chimera?

News: Jason Chimera has 20 points (7G, 13A) in 41 games so far this season, and is on pace to crack the 40-point plateau for the first time in his career.
Analysis: Jason Chimera has developed some real chemistry playing with Joel Ward and Martin Erat on the Caps' third line this year, and the results are showing. As a checking line guy, he still does not see any real time on the power play, but his overall minutes are up to roughly 15½ per game, a full three minutes more than last season. Snap him up if you are in a deeper fantasy format and in need of scoring help.

Chimera Signs To Stay With Caps

News: Jason Chimera signed a $4 million, two-year contract extension with the Capitals on Friday, the Associated Press reports. Chimera will receive $2 million each season in 2014-15 and 2015-16.
Analysis: Jason Chimera is a role-playing journeyman but he has a decent all-around game and this seems like a good move by the Caps to maintain some stability. He is, however, scoring at a faster clip than usual this season with 11 points in 16 games after putting up just 14 in 47 games last season.

Chimera Flying For Washington

News: Jason Chimera posted a goal and three assists in Friday's win over Philadelphia, giving him nine points in the last four games.
Analysis: Jason Chimera has 11 points in 13 games, certainly numbers that are well above the usual rate of his production. He's a valuable player to the Capitals but likely won't continue this prolific rate of scoring.

Chimera Scores In Caps' Road Loss

News: Jason Chimera scored his third goal of the season and added two penalty minutes as the Caps lost in Calgary, 5-2.
Analysis: Okay, the penalty was for shooting the puck over the glass; not for a tough-guy sin like roughing or slashing. But the two minutes count, right? Jason Chimera is off to a good start in goal-scoring, but we doubt he'll suddenly break out at age 34.

Caps' Chimera Gets On Scoreboard

News: Jason Chimera opened the scoring Thursday against Carolina with his first goal -- and point -- of the year.
Analysis: He had a hideous first three games, going minus-4 with just one shot on goal, so simply breaking even and taking two shots on goal in this one was quite an improvement over his previous returns.

Caps' Chimera Scores In Game 1

News: Jason Chimera scored a goal in the second period of the playoff-opening 3-1 win over the Rangers on Thursday night.
Analysis: Jason Chimera was in the lower echelon of Capitals for time on ice, playing just 14:11 on the night, but produced three shots and the goal. This one's got to be extra special, coming as it did on the winger's 34th birthday.

Capitals’ Chimera Returns to Practice

News: Jason Chimera (lower body) practiced and will play against Carolina on Tuesday, Katie Carerra of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Jason Chimera left practice early on Monday, but voided any concerns of an injury and stated that he will be ready to play Tuesday. Chimera has seven points (all assists) in 17 games this season. Despite scoring 20 goals last season, Chimera has yet to light the lamp this season.

Caps' Chimera Iffy For Tuesday

News: Jason Chimera left practice Monday with a lower-body injury, Katie Carerra of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: As a result, Jason Chimera is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Hurricanes. After scoring a career-high 20 goals last season, Chimera has been limited to seven assists (in 17 games) so far this year.

Capitals' Chimera Returns Stateside

News: Jason Chimera has left HC Chomutov of the Czech Extraliga and returned to the United States, the Washington Times reports.
Analysis: Jason Chimera indicated he had some feelings of homesickness and felt it would be better just to return home to his family. Though it seems unlikely he'll return overseas anytime soon, Chimera would be ready to return to the Capitals if the lockout were to come to an end.

Capitals' Chimera Heading Overseas

News: Jason Chimera agreed to a deal with HC Chomutov in the Czech Extraliga on Wednesday that will allow him to return to North America whenever the lockout ends, the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Jason Chimera became the seventh Washington Capital to agree to play overseas, as he reportedly decided it was time to start getting into game-shape. Negations have stalled between the NHL and NHLPA, so it sounds like Chimera will have a little while, at least, to get himself ready.

Caps' Chimera: Points In Three Straight

News: Jason Chimera scored the Capitals' lone goal in a 3-1 loss to the Rangers on Saturday.
Analysis: He has points in three straight games. His speed earned him the goal -- he was just too fast for the Rangers D to catch.
