Pittsburgh Penguins

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.

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.
