  • Senators' Derick Brassard: Undergoes surgery for broken fibula

    Brassard had surgery on a broken fibula Saturday and will miss the remainder of the season, per Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun.

    Brassard suffered the injury Thursday against the Flyers and will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery Saturday morning. The 35-year-old center will finish the year with 13 goals and 10 assists in 62 games. Ridly Greig will rejoin the lineup Saturday against the Maple Leafs, filling in for Brassard in the bottom six.

  • Senators' Derick Brassard: Likely to miss time

    Brassard's lower-body injury is "not good" and he'll likely miss time, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    Brassard was hurt late in the second period, and it appeared to be an ankle or lower-leg issue. The 35-year-old will be evaluated further, and it's possible the Senators end up shutting him down rather than rushing him back this late in the season.

  • Senators' Derick Brassard: Leaves game with LBI

    Brassard (lower body) won't finish Thursday's game versus the Flyers.

    The Senators didn't specify anything beyond lower-body injury, but Brassard's issue appeared to be with his ankle, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports. This may be longer than a day-to-day situation, but it's unclear when the Senators will provide an update on Brassard's status.

  • Senators' Derick Brassard: Credited with goal Monday

    Brassard logged a goal on two shots in Monday's 5-2 win over the Panthers.

    Brassard's power-play tally in the first period was originally credited to Erik Brannstrom. However, it was determined that Brannstrom's shot ricocheted off Brassard's stick before sneaking past Sergei Bobrovsky. It's Brassard's second goal in his last three games, though he'd gone scoreless in his previous nine contests. The 35-year-old veteran is up to 13 goals and 23 points in 61 appearances this season.

  • Senators' Derick Brassard: Two goals in 1,000th career game

    Brassard scored twice Thursday in a 5-3 win over the Rangers. It was his 1,000th NHL game.

    He tipped in a pass from Mathieu Joseph at the midpoint of the second period and then tied the game just 1:36 into the third. Brassard is riding a four-game, six-point streak (three goals, three assists), and he has managed that in limited ice time -- he played just 11:55 on Thursday. Overall, Brassard has delivered 213 goals, 330 asists and 543 points in those 1,000 games.

  • Senators' Derick Brassard: Four points in last four games

    Brassard had a goal and an assist in a 5-2 win over Montreal on Saturday.

    He opened the game late in the first period when he tipped Nick Holden's shot from the point inside the left post. The 35-year-old Brassard has nine goals and 17 points in 46 contests this season, but four of those points (one goal, three assists) have come in his last four games. Brassard doesn't offer much category coverage and the points are few and very far between. Consider this little run the exception, not the rule.

  • Senators' Derick Brassard: Manages assist in loss

    Brassard supplied an assist in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blackhawks.

    A career journeyman, Brassard has underwhelmed with eight goals and six assists through 43 games, but the silver lining is that half of his points have come on the power play. The 35-year-old, whose salary is at the minimum $750,000 on a one-year pact, is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in the summer.

  • Senators' Derick Brassard: Scores seventh goal of 2022-23

    Brassard netted a goal in a 6-2 win against Toronto on Friday.

    Brassard's marker came at 9:57 of the second period and was scored during an Ottawa power play. He has seven goals and 12 points in 38 contests in 2022-23, including seven points with the man advantage. The 35-year-old didn't record a point in his previous five outings.

  • Senators' Derick Brassard: Finds twine on power play

    Brassard scored a power-play goal on four shots and added four hits in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Coyotes.

    Brassard has racked up three power-play points over five games in January. His tally Thursday came in the first period off an assist from Claude Giroux. Brassard has seen limited usage at even strength, but he's still managed to produce 11 points, including six with the man advantage, through 32 outings this season. The veteran forward has added 51 shots on net, 48 hits, 20 PIM and an even plus-minus rating.

  • Senators' Derick Brassard: Scores in win

    Brassard scored a goal on his lone shot in Tuesday's 4-0 win over Columbus.

    Brassard opened the scoring on the power play, deflecting a Jake Sanderson shot past Joonas Korpisalo in the second period. It's Brassard's first goal since Dec. 8 and just his fourth point in his last 13 contests. The 35-year-old center will hold marginal value if he continues to play on the power play, where he's logged five of his 10 points (five goals, five assists) this season.

  • Senators' Derick Brassard: Capitalizes on turnover

    Brassard scored a goal, logged two hits and added two PIM in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Stars.

    Brassard got the Senators on the board after Drake Batherson found him following a Stars turnover in their own zone. The goal was Brassard's fourth of the season. He's been in and out of the lineup lately as a depth forward, and with seven points, 36 shots, 35 hits and a plus-3 rating in 18 contests, the 35-year-old can be safely left on the waiver wire in most fantasy formats.

  • Senators' Derick Brassard: Doubles season output in one game

    Brassard scored a goal and added an assist in Friday's 5-1 win over Anaheim.

    He scored off the rush late in the first period to push the score to 2-0; the goal stood as the eventual winner. It was Brassard's first multi-point game in over a year (Nov. 20, 2021). The points doubled his season total. Brassard is in the twilight of his career. He's on his eighth team since the start of the 2018-19 and is just 35 games shy of the magical 1,000 mark. Brassard's fantasy value is nil, but he should hit that game milestone this season, barring injuries and scratches.

  • Senators' Derick Brassard: Nets team's lone tally

    Brassard scored a second-period goal during Saturday's 5-1 defeat to the visiting Devils.

    Brassard scored his first goal Saturday since his season debut on Oct. 24. The 35-year-old center briefly pulled the Senators to within 3-1 late in the second period, connecting on his first tally in 10 outings. Brassard, who finished with four shots and three hits, received a cross-ice pass from Erik Brannstrom and ruined the shutout bid of rookie goalie Akira Schmid.

  • Senators' Derick Brassard: Scores insurance goal

    Brassard scored in his first game of the season Monday as the Senators upended Dallas 4-2.

    Brassard was a healthy scratch in Ottawa's first five games of the season but centered the second line with Alex DeBrincat and Claude Giroux, as Josh Norris was unable to go due to a shoulder injury. Brassard saw 16:08 of action including 1:52 of power play time. He should continue to see time on the second line, as Norris is slated to be sidelined for at least two weeks.

  • Senators' Derick Brassard: Filling in for Norris

    Brassard will move into Ottawa's top-six forward group because of Josh Norris' absence due to a shoulder injury, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    Brassard was between Alex DeBrincat and Claude Giroux during Monday's morning skate. He also moved into Norris' vacated spot on the power play during the session. Brassard will occupy some important roles for the Senators on Monday night against Dallas after being scratched for the first five games of the year.

  • Senators' Derick Brassard: Earns one-year deal

    Brassard signed a one-year, $750,000 contract with Ottawa on Monday.

    Brassard attended training camp with the Senators on a professional tryout and was able to turn it into a contract for the 2022-23 campaign. In 46 games last season with Philadelphia and Edmonton, he compiled eight goals, 19 points, 62 shots on net and 82 hits.

  • Senators' Derick Brassard: Checks back in Saturday

    Brassard (illness) is in the lineup for Saturday's preseason finale versus the Canadiens, per TSN 1200 Ottawa.

    Brassard missed Thursday's practice with an illness, but it didn't cost him much time. The 35-year-old forward will get one more chance to impress the Senators in the preseason finale. He is looking to parlay his PTO agreement into an NHL contract for the upcoming season. If he ends up sticking with the Senators, Brassard could fill a role as a bottom-six forward and power-play specialist.

  • Senators' Derick Brassard: Misses practice Thursday

    Brassard (illness) was not at practice Thursday, per Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports.

    Brassard is still on a PTO with the Senators, signing just before the start of training camp. Brassard had eight goals and 11 assists last season, split between the Oilers and Flyers. A decision on whether to sign him or release should be forthcoming in the next few days as the season starts Oct. 13 in Buffalo. Consider him day-to-day.

  • Senators' Derick Brassard: Secures tryout

    Brassard signed a professional tryout agreement with the Senators on Thursday.

    Brassard played in 46 games last season for the Oilers and Flyers in which he recorded a combined eight goals and 11 assists. During the postseason with Edmonton, the veteran center played just once and only logged 8:12 of ice time. The Senators have also brought in Michael Dal Colle on a tryout with the pair likely competing for a permanent contract.

  • Oilers' Derick Brassard: Ends slump with assist

    Brassard posted an assist, three shots on goal and two hits in Friday's 3-2 shootout win over the Canucks.

    Brassard went 12 games without a point before helping out on a Tyson Barrie goal in the third period. The 34-year-old Brassard hasn't been very effective since joining the Oilers in a trade from the Flyers, as he produced just two goals and an assist in 15 contests. He ends the regular season with 19 points, 62 shots on net, 82 hits and a plus-4 rating through 46 games overall. Brassard is likely to be a rotational bottom-six option in the playoffs -- he'll compete with the likes of Devin Shore, Josh Archibald and Zack Kassian for a limited role.
