2007-08:: Brittain started out the season slowly, but his game really came together when Larry Mavety took over the Frontenacs bench in mid-November. From that point onwards, Brittain's game really progressed, and he started to produce, finishing the season with 28 goals and 51 points in 68 games. Brittain was named to Team Canada's U18 team that won gold in Kazan, Russia. He had one point in seven games for Canada.
2008-09: Split the season between the Kingston Frontenacs and Barrie Colts where he totaled 18 goals, 18 assists and 94 PIM in 53 games.
2009-10: Split the season between the Barry Colts and the Plymouth Whalers where he totaled 15 goals and 17 assists in 68 games. Also managed 130 PIM.
2010-11: Brittain appeared in 13 games with the Syracuse Crunch (AHL) and spent the bulk of his first pro season with the ECHL's Elmira Jackals. Brittain had 1 assist with 48 PMs in two stints with the Crunch. In 38 games with the Jackals he showed a bit of scoring to go along with his combativeness; scoring 3 goals with 8 assists and finishing +2. Brittain tied for third on the Jackals with 92 PMs. In four ECHL playoff games he scored 1 goal and was +1 with 2 PMs.
2011-12: Brittain split the year between the AHL's Syracuse Crunch and Elmira in the ECHL in his second pro season. After opening the year with the Crunch, he was demoted to Elmira in mid-January and played in nine games with the Jackals. He scored 2 goals with 4 assists and was minus-two with 37 penalty minutes in 38 games with Syracuse. The Crunch reached the AHL playoffs after finishing fourth in the East Division but Brittain did not play in any playoff games. He scored 5 goals and was minus-three with 4 penalty minutes in nine games with the Jackals.
Brittain has size to spare with a decent level of coordination and sufficient hands to mix in a little offense. He is a willing combatant and a solid teammate, willing to stick up for his guys in any situation.
He has the potential to pack on muscle and develop into a tremendous physical specimen. That said, Brittain has shown a steeper development curve than most power forwards and at this point he has not yet cracked an AHL roster full-time, let alone shown indications of establishing himself as an NHL regular.
