Edmonton Oilers forward Alex Chiasson visited his former teammate’s locker room on Thursday to receive his Stanley Cup Championship ring following the Washington Capitals‘ morning skate prior to their game against the Oilers at Rogers Place at 9 PM. 

Like with center Jay Beagle on Monday, captain Alex Ovechkin gave Chiasson his ring and the Capitals did a mini-ring ceremony for Chiasson since he was unable to come to Washington for the Capitals’ ring ceremony on October 2.

Chiasson spoke about getting his ring and facing the Capitals for the first time after his mini-ceremony.

Chiasson, 28, recorded nine points, 18 points, and a +1 rating in 61 regular season games in addition to one goal and two points in 16 playoff games in his one-year career with the Capitals. He made the team on a professional tryout agreement and came up with a huge goal for the Capitals in Game 6 against the Pittsburgh Penguins, opening the scoring for the Capitals in their 2-1 overtime victory, which eliminated the two-time defending champions.

He has played in two games with the Oilers and recorded two goals against the Penguins in their most recent game on Tuesday.

Chiasson usually played on the fourth line during his time in Washington with Beagle when in the lineup but he was promoted to the top-six and playing with Ovechkin at points of last season.
