CALGARY - Chris Breen isn't a goon, but he doesn't want to be considered a gentle giant, either.

At 6-foot-7 and 230 lb., the 23-year-old blueliner certainly has the physical traits to be an imposing presence on the ice.

Now is his third campaign with the AHL's Abbotsford Heat since scoring an entry-level deal from the Calgary Flames organization as an undrafted free agent in 2010, Breen is putting more emphasis on using that to his advantage.
