This isn’t Brashear’s first incident with the law. He was also found guilty of assault in 2012 and was sentenced to 18 months’ probation after the attack that followed a playoff game, according to the Toronto Sun.

CBC Radio Canada also reported that Brashear was forced to bankrupt his company ‘Brash Properties 87’ in November 2018 and had to pay nearly $200,000 in mortgages that had not been repaid.

On the ice, the 47-year-old faced plenty of suspensions to go with 2,634 career penalty minutes while playing in the NHL. Brashear played over 1,000 NHL games split between the Montreal Canadiens, Vancouver Canucks, Philadelphia Flyers, Washington Capitals, and New York Rangers in a career spanning from 1993-2010.
