Former NHL tough guy Brashear takes job at coffee shop

october 16, 2019
Despite earning more than $15 million over the course of 17 seasons in the NHL, former enforcer Donald Brashear is now working at a Tim Hortons in Quebec City. The restaurant is owned his friend Pierre Sévigny. Both played for the Montreal Canadiens.

Brashear has run into legal troubles since leaving the NHL. In 2012, he was convicted of assault after an altercation in a parking lot following a Ligue Nord-Américaine de Hockey playoff game in March of the previous year. He was sentenced to 18 months probation and a $6000 fine. He was also sued for damages by the victim in 2014 and ordered to pay $10,000. In November of 2018, his business - Brash Properties 87 - went bankrupt and was sued in civil cases. Brashear was ordered to pay $200,000 for outstanding mortgages. He was also arrested at his home in Quebec City on June 5th of this year and appeared in court August 12th on charges of mischief and possession of drugs.

News of Brashear's presence behind the counter at Tim Hortons spread quickly on social media. Sévigny was contacted by Le Journal de Quebec and said "He's an employee, that's all. We have just started, he is here to help me. We go there one day at a time, we'll see how it's going to go,"

Brashear was born in the United States, but raised in Val-Bélair, Quebec. He is a citizen of both countries. In 1996, he was traded to the Canucks after an altercation with Habs coach Mario Tremblay. On February 21st of 2000, he was involved in one of the most notorious acts in NHL history as Marty McSorley hit him in the head with his stick (which you can see below). McSorley was suspended for one year, but ultimately never played in the NHL again. Besides Montreal and Vancouver, the 47 year old Brashear played for Philadelphia, Washington and the New York Rangers. He took part in a total of 1025 NHL games.
