Francois Brassard is a battler: Senators scout

PITTSBURGH – Along with Francois Brassard’s skills as a goalie, the Senators like his character. That he persevered in hockey even after being cut four times in the last few years (twice by his Ottawa bantam AA team and then cut twice by the Gatineau Intrepid midget AAA organization) figured into the team’s selection of him.
“He’s a battler,” said Senators amateur scout Trent Mann.
“He works hard. This year he got to play a lot more than most backups played. He’s very slight, but with a development program he’ll get bigger and stronger. We’re excited about what’s in store for him.”
