GENERALS ACQUIRE BRASSARD FROM SEA WOLVES
14 September, 2001
Greensboro, NC - The Greensboro Generals of the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL) have announced a trade with the Mississippi Sea Wolves, acquiring the rights to left wing Chris Brassard (bruh-SARD) in exchange for right wing Curtis Huppe (HUP-ee) and future considerations. Brassard has yet to sign a contract with the Generals.
Brassard, 26, averaged exactly a point a game last season, scoring 23 goals and adding 30 assists for 53 points in 53 games. The 6'0", 205 pound forward also accumulated 168 penalty minutes last season. Brassard suited up for three teams in the ECHL last year, the Johnstown Chiefs, Pensacola Ice Pilots, and the Sea Wolves. Brassard's best numbers as a pro came two years ago while playing for the Macon Whoopee in the Central Hockey League (CHL), where he played for current Generals head coach Graeme Townshend. The native of Toronto, Ontario played in all 70 games that season, posting 31 goals and 43 assists for 74 points, while adding 227 penalty minutes. Brassard has appeared in 162 career games as a pro, with 63 goals and 94 assists for 157 points, with 480 penalty minutes.
"Chris is going to give you everything he's got night in and night out," says Townshend. "He knows how to put the puck in the net, and he'll go to bat for anybody on the team. The fans will love the way he plays."
Huppe split his rookie season with the Generals and the Greenville Grrrowl last year. He compiled 22 goals and 28 assists in 67 games.
