Preseason...Suffered serious stab wounds that left him with a punctured lung while serving as a bouncer at a local bar during the summer prior to fall camp. He and a fellow bouncer were escorting six people out of the club after a fight had broken out. In the ensuing melee, Chevrier felt what he thought was a sharp blow to his ribs. It was not a fist, but a knife blade passing through his rib cage, puncturing his right lung. Moments after his assailants fled, a panting Chevrier noticed he was "leaking blood" from his chest and was rushed to the Montreal General Hospital, where emergency-room doctors helped save his life. He spent some anxious moments in intensive care, but the most painful episode involved a plastic tube being inserted into his chest cavity to help drain blood. Doctors said he would need at least two months recovering before he could begin exercising again, but he was back playing football six weeks later.
