Bio:

Chris Brassard enters coaching after a 12-year professional career.

The Toronto, Ontario, native spent time in the Central Hockey League and East Coast Hockey League, and even enjoyed a stint in Major League Roller Hockey.

The 6-foot, 205-pound left wing used a powerful slap shot and physical style to amass 600 professional points and nearly 1,500 penalty minutes.

After traveling the country and making several CHL and ECHL stops, Brassard found a home in Louisiana, where he excelled with the Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs for seven seasons.

Brassard helped the Mudbugs clinch five consecutive (2004-2008) division championships and reach the Presidents Cup Finals twice (2004, 2006).

Brassard led the Mudbugs in points three times (2003-04, 06-07, 07-08) and assists twice (03-04, 06-07). He led the team in goals with 29 in 2007-08.

In 2005, Brassard set a CHL record with four power-play goals in a single playoff game (at Wichita).

In three different seasons (03-04, 05-06, 07-08) with the Mudbugs, Brassard posted a plus-minus rating of at least plus-20.

Brassard was named the captain of the Mudbugs in 2007. He carried the honor until the end of his Mudbugs career following the 2009 season.

During the 2010-11 season, Brassard played two games for the Texas Brahmas, coached by former Bossier-Shreveport teammate Dan Wildfong. In the cameo, Brassard scored once – a Feb. 25, 2011 goal that marked Brassard’s 600th point as a professional.

In 624 regular-season professional games, Brassard collected 244 goals and 356 assists. He added 50 points, including 21 goals, during the postseason.

Brassard and wife, Kelley, have two daughters, Sammi and Brooklynn.
