Derick Brassard News
Brassard (shoulder) has been cleared to play in the Senators season opener.
After missing the majority of the preseason while rehabbing his surgically repaired shoulder, Brassard is ready to go for Thursday. Brassard had a disappointing debut season in Ottawa, picking up just 39 points (14G / 25A) in 81 games.
