Derick Brassard News


Pittsburgh Penguins

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.

Brassard (undisclosed) will not play on Tuesday.

Brassard is dealing with an undisclosed injury that will keep him out of tonight’s contest. There’s no word when Brassard suffered the injury but it will force the Senators to go with 11 forwards and seven defensemen tonight. Monitor Brassard’s status heading into Thursday’s game vs. the Predators.

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. He was a lot strong in the playoffs, so look for him to get back to his 20-goal, 30-40 assist pace from his Ranger days.

Brassard (shoulder) not expected to be ready for the Senators’ season opener.

Brassard continues to recover from offseason shoulder surgery and while he’s not expected to be sidelined for much longer, it doesn’t look like he’ll be ready for Ottawa’s season opener (Oct.5). Rookie Colin White was hoping to fill-in for Brassard and make the team out of camp, but broke his wrist in their preseason game on Monday, which opens the door for fellow rookies Logan Brown and Filip Chlapik to potentially crack the roster.
