Fantasy Summary

Does many things well on offense and defense. Could find a role eventually as a versatile bottom-pairing.

June 2019 – Chainey did not receive an entry level contract from the Devils which means he re-enters the draft.  Jokke Nevalainen

March 2019 – Chainey took a step back this season after a very good 2017-18 season. Injuries limited the defenseman to just 32 games so far. He just returned after missing 29 contests. Chainey got eased into a third pairing role in the last week. Expect him to see at least another year in the OHL before making any transition to Binghamton. Hopefully, he can return to form in 2019-20. Chris Wassel

July 2017 – Probably best known as a Halifax teammate of Nico Hischier, Chainey’s a talented two-way defenseman prospect on his own merits. In last year’s second campaign with the QMJHL Mooseheads, the 17-year-old Asbestos native tallied four goals and 20 assists in 55 games, adding 44 penalty minutes. With Canada’s Under-18 WJC squad he landed four points, all assists, in five tournament contests. He’s intuitive on the ice- displaying cool composure which helps in the defensive zone, as do his solid positioning skills and quick skating. Moves the puck out of danger smartly. He could bulk up some to help handle stronger opponents. On offense, he has power-play quarterback experience to go with an accurate, rapid-release shot and precision passing. Kevin Wickersham
