|Flaws:||Lacks consistency on offense, and his all-or-nothing style makes him an injury risk. Doesn't use his size enough to his advantage. Isn't much of a playmaker.|
|Career Potential:||Versatile winger with great speed.|

Impact"We showed him some stuff, just little things. In a sense there's a little more responsibility because you are playing against [the opponent's] best players," Oates said while talking about the discussion he had with Chimera. "You're going to play against their best lines and we need you to be reliable there. If you are, great. I love what he brings, that's really the message." The Capitals winger logged just 5:43 of ice time in Tuesday's 6-5 overtime win over Florida, while posting a minus-3 rating. Chimera has no goals and six assists in 13 games this season, but he should be motivated now to snap out of his funk.
