  • Penguins' Derick Brassard: Finds back of net against Isles

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/10/18) Brassard scored his fourth goal of the season in Monday's 2-1 shootout win over the Islanders.

    The 31-year-old's numbers has suffered through the early part of the season due to a lower-body injury that cost him almost three weeks of action in late October and November, but Brassard finally seems to have his legs under him again, scoring three points in the last four games. His spot on the Pens' third line and limited ice time with the man advantage put a ceiling on his fantasy value, but he's still capable of supplying decent production now that he's healthy again.

    Penguins' Derick Brassard: Minus-2 versus Sens

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/19/18) Brassard returned from a nine-game stint on the sidelines against Ottawa on Saturday and tallied a minus-2 rating and two blocks in 15:37 of ice time.

    It was an underwhelming return to action for Brassard considering he tallied four helpers in his two outings prior to getting hurt. The center will need to step up his offensive production if the Pens are going to turn their season around. Once Sidney Crosby (upper body) gets the green light to play, Brassard could find himself back on the wing of Sid the Kid.

    Penguins' Derick Brassard: Activated off IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/17/18) The Penguins activated Brassard (lower body) off injured reserve Saturday.

    Brassard is still technically a game-time decision for Saturday night's matchup with the Senators, but all signs point to the veteran pivot making his return to the lineup in Ottawa. The 31-year-old is expected to jump into a top-six role Saturday, centering Phil Kessel and Jake Guentzel on Pittsburgh's second line.

    Penguins' Derick Brassard: Says he's ready to go

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/17/18) Brassard (lower body) said he'll return against the Senators on Saturday, Pens Inside Scoop reports.

    Brassard, of course, needs to be activated from injured reserve, but it appears the move is imminent based on the center's own words. We'll also get a better idea of the Penguins' lineup configurations once Brassard officially comes off IR.

    Penguins' Derick Brassard: Game-time call Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/16/18) Brassard (lower body) will be a game-time decision ahead of Saturday's clash with Ottawa, with the player telling reporters, "There's a good chance, but it all depends on how I feel tomorrow. Probably going to be a game-time decision," Michelle Crechiolo of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

    Brassard took part in his first practice session Friday, but it would seem that if he doesn't suffer any setbacks, the center will rejoin the lineup for Saturday's contest. Getting the 31-year-old back would be a huge boost for the middle of the Pens' lineup, as Sidney Crosby (upper body) is unlikely to be healthy in time.
