Alex Chiasson (pronounced Shay-Sawn,[1] born October 1, 1990) is a Canadian ice hockey forward who currently plays for the Boston University Terriers.

Early life and educationEdit

Chiasson was born in Montreal and raised in the area of Saguenay, Quebec[2].[1] He began skating at age 4 after his sister suggested that he start.[2] After his sophomore year of high school, he left Quebec to study at Northwood School in Lake Placid, New York.[3] Although Chiasson did not speak English until he moved to the United States, he has since become fluent.[4]

Chiasson played for the Des Moines Buccaneers of the USHL for the 2008–09 season. While in Des Moines he was coached by J. P. Parisé.[3] That year he led the team in scoring and was selected for the 2009 USHL All-Star Game.[1] He was drafted in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft by the Dallas Stars in the second round (thirty eighth overall).[5]

Boston UniversityEdit

In 2009 Chiasson enrolled at Boston University, then the defending NCAA Division I Ice Hockey National Champions. He has remarked that he enjoys playing for BU in part due to the close knit nature of the team.[3] In his first season at BU he missed several games due to a concussion.[6]
