Alex Chiasson is a 10-year NHL veteran who won the Stanley Cup with the Washington Capitals in 2018. Four seasons later, he’s still not getting the respect he deserves.
Chiasson, who was not offered a contract by an NHL team over the offseason, signed a PTO in late September with the Vancouver Canucks. Chiasson made the team out of training camp, signing a one-year deal on Tuesday. Three nights later, Chiasson took the ice for the Canucks in a game against the Philadelphia Flyers.
His last name was misspelled on the back of his jersey.

This is tragic.
Of course, Chiasson, because he’s Chiasson, remained professional and scored a five-on-three power-play goal in the second period to give the Canucks a 3-1 lead.
But c’mon, Vancouver. This man deserves better!
