Acquired: Signed as a free agent by Detroit on June 25, 1987.
Drafted: MTL / 1980 NHL Entry Draft
Round: 2nd (40th overall)
John Chabot was selected by the Montreal Canadiens in the second round of the 1980 NHL Entry Draft, 40th overall. He played his major junior hockey in Hull and Sherbrooke before turning pro. As a QMJHL rookie, Chabot played 68 games, scoring 26 games and 83 points in 68 games. He followed that up with an 89-point season the next year. In 1981-82, he played for the Sherbrooke Beavers, scoring 34 goals and 109 assists for 143 points in 62 points.

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.
