Top Erik Brannstrom News

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Re-ups with club

    Brannstrom secured a one-year, $2 million contract with Ottawa on Saturday.

    Brannstrom finally found himself as a full-time NHL player this season, logging 74 games for the Senators in which he garnered two goals, 16 assists and 74 shots despite averaging just 16:07 of ice time. If the Swedish blueliner can secure more opportunities with the man advantage, he could top the 20-point threshold for the first time in his four-year NHL career in 2023-24.

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Registers assist in win

    Brannstrom produced a power-play assist in Monday's 5-2 win over the Panthers.

    Brannstrom helped Derick Brassard extend Ottawa's lead to 2-0 in the first period. The 23-year-old blueliner is up to two goals and 14 points on the season, matching his career high. Brannstrom has shown some offensive upside, but his production has been limited in a third-pairing role.

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Records helper in commanding win

    Brannstrom earned an assist in Friday's 6-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

    This was the first point for Brannstrom since Nov. 19. The third-pairing blueliner worked through a lower-body injury earlier in the season, and he has largely struggled to make an impact for a Senators team that has won just four of its past 10 games. The Swede has four assists standing as his point total through 43 contests, and while his career-high 65 blocked shots qualifies as a decent total, it's generally not enough to move the needle in fantasy hockey.

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Playing Tuesday

    Brannstrom will be in the lineup against the Jackets on Tuesday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    Brannstrom was activated off injured reserve Sunday but didn't get into the action versus the Sabres. Considering the blueliner has one point in his last 29 appearances, his return to the lineup shouldn't offer much in the way of fantasy value except perhaps in formats that value defensive stats like blocks and hits.

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Back from IR

    Brannstrom (lower body) was activated from injured reserve Sunday, per CapFriendly.

    Brannstrom was activated but did not dress in Sunday's game against Buffalo. He could return as early as Tuesday's matchup with Columbus. The 23-year-old has just three assists in 32 games this season.

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Surfaces on IR

    Brannstrom (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

    The Senators have yet to release an expected timetable for Brannstrom's return, but his placement on IR was likely made retroactive to Dec. 21, in which case he'd be eligible to return whenever healthy. The 23-year-old defender has only picked up three assists through 32 games this campaign, so fantasy managers shouldn't need to track his availability.

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Sidelined with lower-body injury

    Brannstrom won't play Tuesday against Boston due to a lower-body injury, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    Brannstrom will miss a second straight contest with his lower-body injury. He's picked up just three helpers through 32 games this campaign, so fantasy managers shouldn't need to keep tabs on Brannstrom's status.

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Suffers leg injury

    Brannstrom will not play Thursday versus Washington due to a leg injury, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    Brannstrom has had a tough offensive season, as he has only three assists in 32 games. He will be replaced in the lineup by Dillon Heatherington. Brannstrom should be considered day-to-day and could return after the Christmas break.

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Struggling offensively

    Brannstrom has only three assists in 29 games this season.

    Brannstrom was expected to be the jewel coming back from Vegas in the Mark Stone trade from Feb. 2019, as he was drafted 15th overall in 2017, but he has been a huge disappointment offensively. He had only 14 assists last season in 53 games and has seen his ice time drop from 19:46 in 2021-22, to 15:56 this season. Brannstrom started the season with two assists in his first three games but has only one in his last 26.

    Brannstrom had one assist in a 7-5 win over the Bruins on Tuesday.

    Brannstrom picked up his second assist of the season. He had one shot on goal with one blocked shot in 15:10 of action. The defenseman is seeing third-unit duty and finally saw his first power play time of the season, albeit for only 33 seconds.

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Picks up assist Thursday

    Brannstrom drew the secondary assist on Brady Tkachuk's goal Thursday as Ottawa fell 4-1 to the Sabres.

    Brannstrom has been a bit of a disappointment with the Senators since he was the central part of the deal with the Golden Knights that sent Mark Stone to Vegas in 2019. Brannstrom had 14 assists in 53 games last season and should be closer to the 30-35 point mark in 2022-23.

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Signs one-year contract

    Brannstrom signed a one-year, $900,000 contract extension with Ottawa on Monday.

    Brannstrom set career highs in assists (14), points (14), shots on goal (86), blocks (59) and hits (39) in 53 games with the Senators in 2021-22. He also averaged a personal-best 19:46 of ice time per contest. Brannstrom performed well in an increased role and will be counted on to continue his upward trend in 2022-23.

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Picks up assist

    Brannstrom notched an assist and blocked three shots in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Canucks.

    Brannstrom set up a Parker Kelly tally in the third period. Since the start of April, Brannstrom has racked up six helpers, 18 shots on net, 16 blocked shots and a minus-2 rating in 11 contests. The defenseman matched his career high in points Tuesday, but all 13 have been assists this season. He's added 77 shots on net, 51 blocks and a minus-19 rating in 48 appearances.

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Snags helper in loss

    Brannstrom produced a power-play assist, three shots on goal and two PIM in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Jets.

    Brannstrom has found another gear in April with four assists in his last six games. He had the secondary assist on the second of Brady Tkachuk's goals in this contest. For the season, Brannstrom has 11 helpers, including six on the power play, 71 shots on net, 43 blocked shots, 26 PIM and a minus-18 rating through 43 appearances. He should continue to see top-four minutes to close out the campaign.

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Snaps skid with helper

    Brannstrom registered a power-play assist in Friday's 3-1 win over the Flyers.

    This was the first point in 11 games for Brannstrom, who serves on the No. 2 power-play unit. While he's largely been missing the mark offensively -- with six assists counting as his only points through 32 games -- the Swede should see an uptick in playing time down the stretch since Thomas Chabot (hand) is out of comission.

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Doubles point total with two apples

    Brannstrom dished out two assists -- one on the power play -- in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Blues.

    Brannstrom doubled his point total in his 17th appearance of the season, as he's been unable to build on a promising 2020-21 campaign during which he scored 13 points in 30 games for the Senators. Despite the productive night offensively, Brannstrom still finished with a minus-1 rating, as the high-powered Blues offense exposed his defensive shortcomings.

    Brannstrom has averaged 18:56 of ice time -- 1:45 during the power play -- and distributed one assist over nine games this season. The 22-year-old has missed the last three games while in the virus protocols. Upon Brannstrom's return, Lassi Thomson was demoted to the taxi squad.

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Off injured reserve

    Brannstrom (hand) was activated from injured reserve Wednesday, per CapFriendly.
