May 2022 – Chisholm provided the Moose with a productive second season on the blueline amassing 30 points in 53 games.  Chisholm elevated his game in the playoffs leading all Manitoba Moose players with seven points in five games.  Being one of four Moose defensemen to post a half point per game pace or more, the offense is promising, highlighted by his mechanically sound skating and ability to work the offensive blueline. Chisholm has a quick pace to his game, using his heads up style to make crisp outlet passes. His elite ability to walk the offensive blue line will be valuable as a potential NHL power play contributor. His confidence has taken a definite leap forward which is evident in his decision making. Chisholm is beginning to drive results and dictate play for the Moose much like he did in junior. To compete in the NHL Chisholm needs to shore up his defensive game in front of the net and be harder on the puck in his own zone while maintaining his offensive talents.  The Jets’ defensive contract term and a plethora of talented young defensemen are making it difficult for Moose players to get steady reps at the NHL level, but something has to give. Perhaps an opportunity can present itself for Chisholm to get into more than two Jets games for next season. He would make a solid third-pairing offensive defenseman with the potential to get into the top-four and contribute on the power play. Justin Kaye
