Sea Dogs’ Thomas Chabot named CHL Player of the Week

Tuesday April 19, 2016

Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey League today announced that Ottawa Senators prospect Thomas Chabot of the Saint John Sea Dogs is the CHL Player of the Week for the playoff week ending April 17 after recording 10 assists in four games with a plus-minus rating of plus-2.

Chabot produced three multi-point performances helping the Sea Dogs win two games last week in a tight QMJHL Quarter-Final series against the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles.  He opened the week by tying a club record for assists by a defenceman with four as part of a 5-2 Game 3 victory on Monday earning second star honours.  On Tuesday night he was held without a point in a 4-1 loss in Game 4, then picked up two assists on Friday despite a 4-3 loss in Game 5.  Facing elimination, the Sea Dogs delivered a 5-4 victory on the road in Game 6 on Sunday with Chabot once again collecting four assists and second star honours.  Game 7 of the series takes place on Tuesday night in Saint John.

A 19-year-old from Ste-Marie-de-Beauce, Quebec, Chabot is playing in his third career QMJHL season.  Originally a second round pick of the Sea Dogs in the 2013 QMJHL Entry Draft, Chabot was taken in the first round by the Senators in the 2015 NHL Draft.  He is currently fourth in QMJHL playoff scoring with 16 points in 11 games after finishing tied for 10th in scoring among defencemen with 45 points in 47 games.

Also considered for the award this week was San Jose Sharks prospect Kevin Labanc of the Barrie Colts who scored twice with five assists for seven points in three games against the North Bay Battalion, and Jayden Halbgewachs of the Moose Jaw Warriors who scored five goals and three assists for eight points in three games against the Brandon Wheat Kings.
