Chapman was drafted number one overall in the 1976 WHA Amateur Draft by the Edmonton Oilers, and also number two overall in the 1976 NHL Amateur Draft by the Pittsburgh Penguins. He was a highly touted prospect due to his stellar performance with the Saskatoon Blades of the Western Hockey League; in his draft year he recorded 157 points in 69 games. He never really lived up to his potential professionally though, and recorded 231 career points in 402 career NHL games for the Penguins and the St. Louis Blues. He retired in 1983.
