Brassard (illness) is expected to play in Game 1 in San Jose.

Brassard missed the final three games of the first round with an illness but is expected to replace Gabriel Bourque for Game 1 against the Sharks. Brassard did not record a point in two games in round one and had just four goals in 20 games after being acquired by the Avalanche.

The Avalanche have acquired Derick Brassard from the Panthers for a third-round draft pick.

The Panthers are in Colorado tonight so Brassard will likely walk down the hall and face his former team. The Avalanche are looking for some help offensively and adding Brassard to their middle-6 should help. The 31-year-old centre has had an off-year, scoring just 10 goals with nine assists (19 points) in 50 games with the Penguins and Panthers.

Brassard (lower-body) will be a game-time decision on Saturday.

Brassard has missed the last nine games with a lower-body injury, buts on the ice on Friday and declared himself a game-time decision. Brassard’s return would be welcomed, as Sidney Crosby is questionable with an upper-body injury. Brassard had five points (1G / 4A) in eight games before getting hurt.

Brassard (lower-body) will be a game-time decision for Game 1.

Brassard missed the final five games of the regular season but practiced each of the last two days and it looks like he will play in Game 1 vs. the Flyers. Brassard has been a notoriously good playoff performer, picking up 55 points (22G / 33A) in 78 career postseason games with the Rangers and Senators.

Brassard (lower-body) was on the ice for Monday’s practice; questionable for Game 1.

Brassard missed the final five games of the regular season, but his availability for Monday’s practice is a good sign that he will be available during the Penguins’ first round matchup with the Flyers. The 30-year-old centre picked up three goals and five assists in 14 games since joining the Penguins and has been a quality playoff performer during his career. Game 1 goes on Wednesday, so keep an eye on Brassard’s status over the next few days.

Brassard will make his Penguins debut on Tuesday.

After being acquired from the Senators on February 23rd, Brassard missed the first two games with the Penguins while resolving his visa issues. Brassard had 18 goals and 20 assists (38 points) in 58 games with Ottawa and should centre a lethal third line behind Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin—he could also play alongside sniper Phil Kessel.
