Former NHL enforcer Donald Brashear is being sued by a Senate security guard and part-time hockey player who was pummeled in an arena parking lot.

Eric Labelle wants $215,000 in damages after Brashear was convicted of assaulting him following a March 2011 game in Riviere-du-Loup, Que., northeast of Quebec City.

Both men had just completed a match in the Ligue Nord-Americaine de Hockey, a minor-pro outfit known for wild brawls among players and fans.
