At the 1923 European Championships he won a silver medal with his team, winning gold in 1924. At home, he played for his hometown club, the Chamonix HC, winning the French title seven times – 1923, 1925-1927, 1929-1931. At the 1924 Winter Olympics, Hassler also competed in speed skating, but he withdrew after the first event, the 500 m.

His daughter [Nicole] won four medals at European and World Championships in figure skating. She also competed at the 1960 and 1964 Winter Olympics.
