The Phoenix Coyotes have signed Mathieu Brisebois of the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies to a three-year entry level contract.

Named the second star of the month of February in the QMJHL after collecting 5 goals and 17 points in 11 games with a plus-11 rating, Brisebois, an undrafted free agent, has had a tremendous year in the Quebec league this season. The defenseman has put up strong offensive numbers, with 17 goals and 67 points in 58 contests, a step up from his strong year last season when he recorded 17 goals and 56 points. He is currently tied for the league lead in scoring by defensemen.

In 173 regular season games over three season with the Huskies, Brisebois has recorded 37-104-141. In 31 games with the Lewiston MAINEiacs in 2009-2010, he only posted 7 assists in 31 games. Since then, he has improved his offensive and defensive outputs to become a more rounded player than the one that went undrafted.

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
