Chabot got his first taste of NHL action in 1983-84, playing 56 games with the Canadiens, scoring 18 goals and 43 points. Midway through the following season, he was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins where he played for three years before joining the Detroit Red Wings. He remained in the Red Wings' organization until 1991 when he joined the Canadian National Team, suiting up for eight games.
With his NHL career at a standstill, Chabot wanted to continue playing hockey at an elite level, so he joined the Berlin Prussians of the German League in 1992. The club's nickname was changed to Prussian Devils for the start of the 1994-95 campaign. Chabot's best season was 1995-96, when he scored 16 games and 81 points in 50 games.
He continued to play pro hockey in Germany with the Berlin Polar Bears through the 2000-01 season.
