And this is why MANY teams wanted to get their hands on him for years. People thought he was just a throw-in 3rd liner. Teams had been asking Columbus about Brassard for at least 3 years hoping to get him out of there.

He was great yet again. He has an uncanny ability to slow down the game and make the right play.
