In his home town of Edmonton on Thursday, the 34-year-old scored his second of the year in only his tenth game, as the Caps beat the Oilers, 4-1. Chimera’s friends and family were in attendance. It briefly appeared that Chimera scored the second goal of the game, but it was credited to linemate Joel Ward, and Chimera said as much during his intermission interview with Craig Laughlin.
In bobblehead news, Monumental recently added Chimera’s to its rewards catalog, for 2000 points. This appears to be the same whacky wobbler that was made available through the Caps Kids Club last season, so if you missed out on that, here’s your chance to get it again.
