After being acquired from the Senators on February 23rd, Brassard missed the first two games with the Penguins while resolving his visa issues.

The Penguins have reportedly acquired Brassard in exchange for G Filip Gustavsson, D Ian Cole and a 2018 first-round draft pick.

Brassard was originally listed as questionable for tonight’s game, but he hopped on the ice for the Senators morning skate and will play against Chicago. Brassard has played well recently, picking up four goals and five assists (nine points) in his last nine games.
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.
The Senators acquired Derick Brassard and a 2018 seventh-round pick from the Rangers for Mika Zibanejad and a 2018 second-round pick.
