Brodie picked up a helper in a 4-3 loss to Florida on Tuesday. Brodie has been solid so far this season, with four points and a plus-3 in seven games. He has become one of the more reliable fantasy defensemen in the league and should stay that way for years to come.
Brodie collected an assist in a 6-3 loss to Colorado on Tuesday. Brodie has three points in four games since returning from injury, and appears primed for another big fantasy season. For Calgary's sake, his return will also hopefully help a flagging defensive corps that has allowed more than four goals a game this season.
Brodie scored his first goal of the season and also had his first assist in Saturday's win over the Oilers. Brodie has already logged over 25 minutes of ice time in two of the three contests he's played in since returning from a hand injury. The two-way blueliner is one of the most underrated players in the game and should have another strong season after posting a career-high 41 points and plus-15 rating in 2014-15.
Brodie (hand) took line rushes with Mark Giordano in pregame warmups, indicating he will return to action Wednesday against the Senators, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports. The Flames will welcome Brodie back to their lineup with open arms, as they are in desperate need of an offensive spark, which the 25-year-old defender is certainly capable of providing from the blue line. Brodie tallied 41 points (11 goals, 30 assists) in 81 games with Calgary last season.
Brodie was activated from injured reserve Wednesday, and is a game-time decision for Wednesday's tilt against Ottawa, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The FAN reports. Brodie broke a bone in his hand during a preseason contest, and has been held out of action ever since. Brodie's return would be a huge boost for the Flames' defensive corps, as he would likely immediately slot in as a top-pair defender alongside Mark Giordano, and would also play a prominent role on the team's penalty-killing and power-play units. His activation from injured reserve is a promising indication of his potential availability for Wednesday's tilt against Ottawa, but either way, his status for Wednesday night's contest will be confirmed prior to puck drop.
