Nicholas James "Chuck" Kobasew (born April 17, 1982) is a Canadian professional ice hockey right winger currently playing for the Colorado Avalanche of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing careerEdit

AmateurEdit

Kobasew spent one season playing at Boston College, starring on a team which won the National Championship and was loaded with players headed to the NHL. At the NCAA Frozen Four, he was named MVP for the tournament. Following the Eagles' win over the North Dakota Fighting Sioux, he jumped to the professional ranks.

ProfessionalEdit

He was drafted by the Calgary Flames in the first round (14th overall) in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. During the 2004–05 NHL lockout, Kobasew played with the American Hockey League (AHL)'s Lowell Lock Monsters, and helped the team reach a number of franchise records. He was named as captain for the team, and scored 75 points in 79 games. He was also selected to play for the Canadian contingent at that year's All-Star game.

While playing for the Flames, Kobasew scored his first career hat trick against the Colorado Avalanche on January 24, 2006.

On February 10, 2007, Kobasew and Andrew Ference were traded by the Flames to the Boston Bruins in exchange for Brad Stuart and Wayne Primeau. On May 13, 2008, Kobasew signed a 3-year contract extension with the Bruins worth $7 million. Kobasew scored 21 goals along with 21 assists during the 2008-09 NHL Season as the Bruins reached the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals.

Kobasew was traded by the Bruins to the Minnesota Wild in exchange for Craig Weller, a second round pick in 2011, and the rights to prospect Alexander Fallstromon October 18, 2009.[1] On November 27, 2009, Kobasew scored his second career hat trick similarly against the Colorado Avalanche.

On July 1, 2011, Kobasew agreed to a two-year deal worth 1.25 million per year with the Colorado Avalanche.[2]
