67There were some problems with Brian McGrattan this year, and the Ottawa Senators as a whole, who started off as one of the league's best teams but really fell off late in the season an were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs. McGrattan continued to see little playing time, struggled with an injured shoulder, and also the off-ice issue of substance abuse which became public later on. McGrattan got edges on his rival Andrew Peters and Shawn Thornton and also had a nice win in one of the year's best fights with Colton Orr. McGrattan drew with Raitis Ivanans and unfortunately had a couple scraps that never got going gainst the two best fighters in the league, Georges Laraque and Donald Brashear. McGrattan and Laraque had another fight though but it was similarly uneventful and ended quickly in a draw. McGrattan's only loss was a bad one as Riley Cote handily won a fight where McGrattan hurt his shoulder. This was McGrattan's last year with the Ottawa Senators as they chose to let him sign elsewhere as a free agent but McGrattan decided to help himself with his off-ice troubles and went into the NHL's substance abuse program. McGrattan ended up missing almost all of the next season.
