Donald Brashear
SLP2000022301 - 23 FEBRUARY 2000 - VANCOUVER, CANADA: Boston Bruins defense man Marty McSorley is shown in this video striking Vancouver's Donald Brashear in the head with his stick on February 21, resulting in the toughest penalty the National Hockey League has ever had to give one of its players. The NHL has suspended McSorley for the remainder of the season and the playoffs. Brashear sustained a concussion and will be out for at least two to three weeks. rg/bg/UPI

Donald Brashear (born January 7, 1972) is an American-Canadian professional ice hockey left winger who currently plays for the New York Rangers of the National Hockey League (NHL). He previously played for the Montreal Canadiens, Vancouver Canucks, Philadelphia Flyers, and Washington Capitals. Born in Bedford, Indiana, he moved to Quebec in his youth.

Brashear's stay in Montreal ended suddenly in 1996. Shortly after a heated verbal exchange with then-Canadiens head coach Mario Tremblay during a team practice in Denver, Brashear was traded to Vancouver for Jassen Cullimore. The full incident was filmed by RDS cameraman Paul Buisson.

During the February 21, 2000 Vancouver-Boston game, when Brashear played for Vancouver, Marty McSorley struck Brashear in the side of his head with his stick. Brashear fell to the ice, his head bounced, and his unsecured helmet flew off. Brashear suffered from a grade 3 concussion and memory lapses. He returned to play after several weeks and has fully recovered. McSorley was suspended and never played another NHL game.
