Prospect Update: Austen Brassard

Tuesday, 30.04.2013 / 12:54 PM / PROSPECT PROFILES
Winnipeg Jets

Two of the Jets’ 2011 draft picks were facing off in the OHL Eastern Conference final this week. Mark Scheifele, of the Barrie Colts, advanced to the final round with a 3-1 win April 29th, but Belleville Bulls’ Austen Brassard was eliminated after a hard-fought game seven. The Bulls came back from a 3-1 series deficit but couldn’t edge out a third consecutive win.

Brassard, a Windsor, Ontario native, was drafted by the Winnipeg Jets in the fifth round (149th overall) of the 2011 NHL Draft. The 6'2", 207-pound 20 year-old, recorded one of his best seasons in his fourth junior year, recording 14 goals and 19 assists over 62 games for a total of 33 points. Size and strength are his advantages and he uses them well, logging 94 PIMs and eight fights over the course of the season. The right-winger finished the season with a plus-minus 15.

In the post-season, Brassard recorded one point in the first round against the Mississauga Steelheads, five points against the Sudbury Wolves in the second round, and six points against the Barrie Colts in the Eastern Conference Finals, for a total of 12 points in 17 games. Leading the Bulls on the top line, Brassard provides physical play as well as scoring ability, a rare skill greatly valued by his team.
