Brisebois Signs With Montreal

May 30, 2001

MONTREAL (AP) _ Defenseman Patrice Brisebois, who had the NHL’s worst plus-minus this season, was re-signed to a one-year contract by the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday.

The 30-year-old Brisebois will receive a $300,000 raise from the $2.2 million he earned this past season, his agent Don Meehan confirmed.

Brisebois had 15 goals and 21 assists in 77 games this season, but he also had the league-worst minus-31.

The one-year deal means Brisebois will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, 2002.

The Canadiens also signed forward Marc-Andre Thinel to a three-year deal. A fifth-round draft pick in 1999, Thinel was second in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League in scoring this season with 62 goals and 88 assists in 70 games with Victoriaville.
