Fantasy Summary

A smart and reliable defender with strong skating skills but a limited offensive ceiling.

July 2021 – The Canucks have moved on Chatfield and he will officially test the open market. Dave Hall

May 2018 – Chatfield wrapped up his season with two goals and seven points in 60 AHL contests. His role increased as the season wore on and he demonstrated strong defensive ability and good mobility at the professional level. One of the few right-shot defenders in the Canucks pipeline and turning 22 this off-season, the former Windsor Spitfire may be closer to the NHL ranks than some give him credit. Cam Robinson

February 2018 – Chatfield has had a successful first season in professional hockey. He’s been a steady player on the back end for Utica despite being a youngster. While his counting stats remain muted – just five helpers in 42 AHL contests, his game lends itself well to the defensive end of the rink. The Canucks’ pipeline is lacking depth on their right side so Chatfield may be closer to the NHL then some other prospects. Just don’t expect much more than filling niche categories in the fantasy landscape. Cam Robinson


June 2017 – The 21-year-old defender is something of a late bloomer. He’s steadily improved his game and added some much-needed maturity both on and off the ice. His junior career culminated with a Memorial Cup Championship with the Windsor Spitfires this spring. Chatfield, the co-captain of the club, was instrumental at both ends of the rink for the host team and looks like a shrewd free agent signing by GM, Jim Benning. Chatfield possesses good speed, solid positioning and enjoys engaging physically despite not being overly large for his position.  Cam Robinson
