Former Montreal Canadiens' enforcer Donald Brashear is being sued for $215,000, over a fight he had with an opponent outside the arena in Rivière-du-Loup.
Back in March of 2011 Brashear was playing in the North American Hockey League.
He's already been convicted of assault in the case.
He was sentenced to 18 months probation and ordered to make a $6000 contribution to charity.
But the man he beat up , Eric Labelle, says he sustained several injuries as a result of the beating including a concussion.
He's seeking compensation for time lost at work and pain and suffering.
Brashear's claim to fame in the NHL is his 2634 penalty minutes over a 16-season career.
