Red Wings' Ben Chiarot: Remains out for personal reasons
Chiarot (personal) isn't expected to return until midway through the preseason, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

Red Wings' Ben Chiarot: Closes out first season in Detroit
Chiarot, a first-year Red Wing, ended up with five goals, 14 assists and a minus-31 rating through 76 games this season.
Chiarot had the worst efficiency rating on the team, but it should be known that he still logged a career high in blocked shots (164) and brought a physical edge with 147 hits. Offensively, he was right on par with his career averages after completing seasons with the Jets, Canadiens and Panthers, respectively. It's clear that GM Steve Yzerman finds Chiarot valuable; after all, the versatile defenseman is on the books for three more seasons at $4.75 million AAV and has a modified no-trade clause built into the contract....

Chiarot needs just two more points to get back over the 20-point threshold for the fourth time in the last five seasons.

Red Wings' Ben Chiarot: Delivers helper in narrow loss
Chiarot recorded an assist in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Blue Jackets.
Chiarot is on pace for a career-high 24 points in his first season with the Winged Wheel.

Chiarot has added 87 blocked shots and 96 hits through 41 games.... See More ... See Less

The 31-year-old was well rested since Friday's game against the Senators got cancelled due to severe weather, and he picked up 22:19 of ice time, including 1:46 shorthanded, in this comeback thriller. Despite having a decade's worth of NHL service time, Chiarot has never played an 82-game season, but he has yet to miss a game in his debut campaign with Detroit.... See More ... See Less

Chiarot ended a four-game point drought with the helper.

For the season, he has a goal, three assists, 36 hits, 32 blocked shots, 34 shots on net, 14 PIM and a minus-5 rating in 17 contests.... See More ... See Less
