Early life and educationEdit
Chiasson was born in Montreal and raised in the area of Saguenay, Quebec. He began skating at age 4 after his sister suggested that he start. After his sophomore year of high school, he left Quebec to study at Northwood School in Lake Placid, New York. Although Chiasson did not speak English until he moved to the United States, he has since become fluent.
Chiasson played for the Des Moines Buccaneers of the USHL for the 2008–09 season. While in Des Moines he was coached by J. P. Parisé. That year he led the team in scoring and was selected for the 2009 USHL All-Star Game. He was drafted in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft by the Dallas Stars in the second round (thirty eighth overall).
In 2009 Chiasson enrolled at Boston University, then the defending NCAA Division I Ice Hockey National Champions. He has remarked that he enjoys playing for BU in part due to the close knit nature of the team. In his first season at BU he missed several games due to a concussion.
