Chimera had a bounce back season with Washington in 2015-16. In 82 games, the speedy winger had 20 goals and 20 assists. He was a bit quieter in the playoffs, tallying just a goal and an assist in 12 postseason contests.
The fact that Chimera got a multi-year deal is interesting as he’s subject to the 35+ rule that means that if Chimera were to retire following 2016-17, the Islanders would still be responsible for his full cap hit.
In his 15 years, Chimera has played in a total of 951 games with Edmonton, Columbus, and Washington. He has 163 goals and 206 assists for his career.
