Brashear Getting His Ice Time In Hartford

from Jason Remillard of the Republican at MassLive,

It’s been 15 years since Donald Brashear lived the life of a minor league hockey player, chartering buses instead of jets to get from game to game.

Usually players making $1.4 million per year don’t take too kindly to going back to the American Hockey League. Brashear is not one of those players. The 38-year-old was sent down to the Hartford Wolf Pack by the parent New York Rangers on Feb. 12 and has infused the Hartford locker room with veteran leadership.

“I’m just coming to play my game,” Brashear said after the Wolf Pack defeated the Springfield Falcons 4-2 on Friday at the MassMutual Center. “I’m a physical player. Sometimes you need to get physical, sometimes you don’t.”
