Jason Chimera (pronounced /tʃɪˈmærə/; born May 2, 1979) is a Canadian professional ice hockey left winger and an alternate captain for the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing careerEdit

Pre-NHLEdit

Chimera played his junior career in the WHL, for Medicine Hat and Brandon. He was selected 121st overall in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft by his hometown team, the Edmonton Oilers, mostly because of his outstanding skating. Chimera played three seasons on the Hamilton Bulldogs, which at that point was the Oilers' farm team in the American Hockey League. In his final season, he was named to the AHL First All-Star team.

NHLEdit

Chimera played two seasons for Edmonton before being traded to the Phoenix Coyotes for draft choices. Because of the NHL lockout, he did not play the following season and went to play in Italy for Mastini Varese. Chimera was subsequently dealt to the Columbus Blue Jackets, without playing a game in Phoenix, as part of a trade for Geoff Sanderson.

With the Blue Jackets, Chimera predominantly played left wing on the team's third line. He was usually centered by Manny Malhotra and spent significant time playing alongside right wingers such as Dan Fritsche and Trevor Letowski. However, Chimera began the 2008–09 season as the veteran presence on a line with rookies Derick Brassard and Jakub Voráček.

He was a member of the 2007 Canadian IIHF World Championship team that won gold in a 4–2 win against Finland in Moscow.

Chimera was traded to the Washington Capitals on December 28, 2009 for Chris Clark and Milan Jurčina.[1]

Chimera signed a 2-year extension with the Capitals on September 29, 2011 ($3.5 million/season).
