History

2004-05: Breault immediately stepped onto the Drakkar roster, but was up-and-down over the course of the season, playing in the top six, but occasionally had consistency issues, as well as a couple nagging injuries, finishing with 40 points in 54 games.

2005-06: Breault bounced back in his sophomore season, having a relatively healthy year, playing in all but two games, and finishing with 68 points in as many games, 30 of which were goals. He was a participant in the 2006 CHL Top Prospects game.

7th round (207th overall), 2006 NHL Draft by Buffalo.  Unsigned in 2008.

Talent Analysis
Breault is a strong, smooth skater with great hands and good vision in the offensive zone. Not very big, he makes up for it with quickness, though he is willing to pay the price if necessary. Boasting not only a good nose for the net, Breault is also a gifted playmaker, willing to dispense the puck accurately and regularly. His strong offensive game is complemented by a willingness to pick up the slack in the defensive end when necessary. He could use to put on some size, in the hopes of giving him a bit of a physical game and some more strength on the puck.
Future
Breault is a talented two-way forward, and with his quickness, could find some time on a second line somewhere.
