58Donald Brashear saw his first NHL action during the 1993-1994 season. After signing as a free agent with the Montreal Canadiens in 1992, Brashear spent his first professional season in the AHL. He spent most of this season in the minors as well but did play 14 games after being called up for a stint. Donald was quite active, getting into 6 fights. His only win was against fellow rookie Darren McCarty who he edged in an uneventful fight. Brashear lost to McCarty's teammate Bob Probert as Probert beat him clearly and landed the only punches while Brashear looked scared to fight him. However Probert was one of the top fighters in the league at this point. Brashear was also edged by Louie DeBrusk as well as light-heavy Scott Thornton in a crap fight. Brashear drew with heavyweight Mick Vukota and Troy Mallette in crap fights where they fell down right away. Huggy Bear demonstrated that he was a willing fighter as a young rookie and he didn't hesitate to take on some tough customers like DeBrusk, Vukota, and of course Probert. However it was clear Brashear was still raw and had yet to develop his fighting skills which he would possess later in his career.
