Brendan's first international experience with Hockey Canada was at the 1995 World U17 Hockey Challenge in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada where he played for Team West and finished fourth.

He was selected to Canada's team at the 1999 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships, which were held in Winnipeg, Manitoba. During the tournament, he scored one goal and recorded seven assists in seven games.

During this tournament, Brendan set a Canadian World Junior record with five assists in one game against Kazakhstan. Canada finished the tournament with the silver medal after losing to Russia in overtime in the gold medal game.

He has also represented Canada at the senior men's level, playing in the World Championships four times (2001, 2002, 2004 and 2005) after his NHL season was over. In these four tournaments, he did not score a goal for Canada, but contributed with five assists.

In 2004, Brendan helped Canada to a gold medal and in 2005, captured the silver medal. He played in a single game for Canada at the 2004 World Cup of Hockey, where Canada captured the championship.

Brendan was invited to Canada's summer evaluation camp prior to the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy, but was not selected for the final squad. In August 2009, he participated in Hockey Canada's summer orientation camp prior to the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

After a strong start to the 2009–10 season, Brendan was ultimately selected as a member of Canada's Olympic Men's Hockey Team. He was selected to the team to provide toughness and grit.

As the tournament progressed, he found himself playing a larger role on a physical line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry of the Anaheim Ducks.

Brendan finished the tournament with two goals and one assist as Canada captured the gold medal with an overtime victory against the United States.

Brendan is the son-in-law of former Montreal Canadiens coach and former Dallas Stars teammate Guy Carbonneau, having married Carbonneau's daughter, Anne-Marie on July 20, 2002.

Together, Brendan and Anne-Marie have three children: a daughter, Bryelle and twins; son Brody and daughter Mallory, (born May 11, 2008).
