  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Snags helper in loss

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.

  • 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.

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Off injured reserve

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

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Joins practice Sunday

    Brannstrom (hand) practiced with the team Sunday.

    Brannstrom broke his hand in November but it appears that his rehab and return timeline are right on track. The blueliner has been held scoreless in his only two NHL games this season. He could return as early as Wednesday against Boston but the team may elect to get him some extra practice time before he sees any game action.

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Out 6-to-8 weeks

    Brannstrom will be sidelined for 6-8 weeks with a broken hand, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports. The 22-year-old blueliner has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

    Brannstrom will likely have to wait for the calendar to flip to 2022 before making his return to the Senators' lineup. The 2017 first-round pick has gone scoreless through two top-level appearances this year.

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: May have broken hand

    The Senators believe that Brannstrom suffered a broken hand, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

    The team is still running more medical tests on Brannstrom to determine exactly how severe the injury is, but the early evaluation has returned unfortunate results. It's safe to say that the 22-year-old won't be available for either of Ottawa's games this weekend and will likely miss at least a couple of months. The team is dealing with an extensive COVID-19 issue, as well, and may need to call up a replacement for Saturday's game against Pittsburgh.

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Joins big club

    Brannstrom was promoted from AHL Belleville on Sunday.

    With Nick Holden landing on the COVID-19 list, Brannstrom earned a promotion. Assuming Holden isn't available Tuesday against the Bruins, there's a chance that the 22-year-old could make his season debut. He has three points in nine games with AHL Belleville this season.

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Assigned to AHL affiliate

    Brannstrom was assigned to AHL Belleville on Thursday.

    Brannstrom was demoted to make room for Filip Gustavsson on the Senators' roster, as he was the only defenseman Ottawa had on a two-way contract. The 22-year-old blueliner will likely return to the big club as soon as Matt Murray (illness) is ready to play.

  • Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Hands out three apples

    Brannstrom had three assists and was plus-3 in Wednesday's 5-1 win over Montreal. He also had two shots and two hits.

    Brannstrom helped set up each of Ottawa's first three goals, enabling the Senators to build a 3-1 lead through 40 minutes. That was an unexpected performance by the 21-year-old defenseman, who entered the night without a multi-point game all season and had just 13 points in his first 59 NHL appearances.

A first-round pick in 2017, he should continue to see bottom-four usage down the stretch as he takes on more responsibilities.
