Canadiens veteran Patrice Brisebois is thrilled to be back in the Habs family, and he can’t wait to get started working with the club’s defence prospects.

In a wide-ranging chat outside a downtown Montreal café last week, Brisebois talked about his return to the Habs, his 2009 retirement, Montreal’s legendary boo-birds, his family, future, TV work last season and his love of car-racing. The way Breezer was hired to his new post speaks volumes about the new front-office culture of the Canadiens.

Here is Dave Stubbs’s feature profile of Brisebois.
