Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Frederic Chabot
Goalie Frederic Chabot was selected in the 10th round, 192nd overall, in the 1986 NHL Entry Draft by the New Jersey Devils. For two years, he tended goal for the Drummondville Voltigeurs of the QMJHL. In the first season, he played in 62 games, winning 31 and losing 29 with a 5.01 gaa. He followed that up the next year playing 58 games, winning 27 and losing 24 with a 4.34 gaa. In 1988-89, Chabot played in the WHL as an overage player with the Moose Jaw Warriors. After 26 games, he was traded to the Prince Albert Raiders.

In 1989-90, Chabot tended goal for the Sherbrooke Canadiens in the AHL, playing in two games, winning one and losing one. He also played 23 games with the Fort Wayne Komets of the IHL.

After playing in 35 games with the Fredericton Canadiens in 1990-91, Chabot was called up to the Montreal Canadiens for three games. His next chance would come in 1992-93 when he played one game for the Habs. In 1993-94, Chabot played four games with the Philadelphia Flyers. For the next three years, Chabot played in the minors before the Los Angeles Kings used him for 12 games in the 1997-98 season. He posted a record of 3-3-2 with a 3.14 gaa. Chabot's success in Los Angeles drew the attention of the Montreal Canadiens, who re-acquired him for the 1998-99 season, when he dressed for eleven games.

After playing three years in the IHL with the Houston Aeros, Chabot was forced to look elsewhere when the league disbanded after the 2000-01 season. He now plays professionally in Germany with the Nuerenberg Ice Tigers.
