by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard managed two helpers and five hits in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Canucks.

Brassard assisted on both of Brock Nelson's tallies in the contest. In seven games since Brassard returned from an upper-body injury, he has three assists and 16 hits. The 32-year-old forward is up to 32 points, 115 hits and 110 shots on net through 66 contests this year.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard (upper body) will rejoin the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Brassard will return to a prominent role following his two-game absence, skating on the Islanders' second line and second power-play unit against New York. The veteran forward has notched 10 goals and 29 points in 59 games this campaign.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: Still managing injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard (upper body) won't suit up in Sunday's game against the Sharks, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Per Gross, Brassard is feeling better after taking a puck to the right cheek during Wednesday's game against Colorado, but he will continue to miss time. The 32-year-old has been solid for the Islanders this campaign, racking up 10 goals and 29 points through 59 games this campaign. In his stead, expect Otto Koivula to continue to draw into the lineup for Sunday's game against the Sharks.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: Deemed day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard (upper body) is considered day-to-day and won't play Friday against Detroit.

Brassard suffered an upper-body injury during Wednesday's loss to Colorado and will miss at least one game as a result. The recently recalled Otto Koivula will fill in on the Islanders' fourth line Friday.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: Injured in first period Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard (upper body) will not return to Wednesday's game against the Avalanche.

Brassard was struck by a shot from teammate Ryan Pulock in the first period, and it was ultimately bad enough to keep him out for the rest of the game. With Brassard out, the Islanders are beginning to run thin on center depth. An update on his status should be available prior to Friday's game against the Red Wings.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: Pair of assists in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard collected two assists in Thursday's 5-3 win versus Los Angeles.

Now with 27 points on the year, Brassard has four in his last four games. Playing fewer minutes than ever before in his career, the 32-year-old carries decent value in deep formats, but Brassard's days as reliable fantasy contributor are mostly behind him.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: Halts 18-game goal drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard scored a goal on two shots and dished out three hits in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over Dallas.

Brassard tied the game at 2-2 with 6:22 left in the second period, his first goal since Nov. 17. The 32-year-old has nine goals and 25 points in 51 games in his first year as an Islander.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: No goals in 15 straight games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard hasn't scored since Dec. 17 versus Nashville, a span of 15 straight games.

Brassard does have five assists during this span but the Islanders need more offense from just about all of their forwards. On the season, Brassard has eight goals, 14 assists and a plus-2 rating in 46 games. Brassard has performed better offensively when playing wing but the Islanders' lack of depth at center has forced him to play down the middle more often than not.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: One goal in December
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard only had one goal in 14 December games for the Islanders.

Brassard also only had two assists during this time span and that's just not good enough for fantasy owners or the Islanders. Brassard has bounced around with the Islanders, sometimes playing center and other times wing. His linemates have also changed often as coach Barry Trotz has been mixing and matching combinations, trying to find lines that work for everyone. Currently, Brassard is playing right wing on the second line with Brock Nelson and Anthony Beauvillier, but how long this arrangement will last is anyone's guess.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: Nets first December goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard scored a power-play goal on two shots in Tuesday's 8-3 loss to the Predators.

Brassard's goal with the man advantage gave the Islanders a 2-1 lead early in the second period, although that lead ultimately proved to be short-lived. Brassard, who snapped an eight-game goal drought with his power-play tally, has eight goals and 18 points in 32 games this season. Tuesday's goal was his first since Nov. 27.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: Tips in seventh goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard scored a goal and added two hits in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Kings.

Brassard redirected a point shot from Scott Mayfield for the Islanders' only goal of the game. Brassard had two scoreless outings after a five-game point streak, but he found his way back into the goal column Wednesday. The 32-year-old has 17 points through 23 appearances this season. He had 23 points in 70 games between three teams last year. Stability and a top-six role with the Islanders has done wonders for his production, which is at his best level since his Rangers days.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: Takes revenge on former club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard notched two assists while adding two shots, six hits and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Penguins.

His second helper of the night was the big one, as the 32-year-old teed up the puck for Ryan Pulock to blast home the tying goal late in the third period -- ensuring the Isles would record a point in their 15th straight game, tying a franchise record. Brassard, who managed only 12 goals and 23 points in 54 games for Pittsburgh during the previous two seasons, now has six goals and 15 points in 19 games to kick off 2019-20 with his new club.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: Helps spark rally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard had two assists and two shots on goal, along with a plus-2 rating, in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Flyers.

The 32-year-old assisted on the Isles' first two goals as New York erased a 3-0 deficit in the third period. Brassard got off to a very slow start to the season, picking up just one assist in his first eight games. He's been incredibly productive ever since, racking up six goals and 12 points in 10 games. After bouncing between three teams in 2018-19, it appears Brassard has found a home.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: Three-point performance in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard scored a goal and two assists in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Maple Leafs.

His third-period tally, as well as his first helper of the evening, both came on the power play, and the veteran center also added five shots and five hits to his impressive line. After managing only one assist through the first eight games of the season, Brassard has flipped the switch with six goals and 10 points in the last nine games.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: Back at center
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard moved back to center for the game Wednesday versus Toronto, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Brassard is a natural center, so this shouldn't come as a surprise. Brassard had been seeing time at wing due to multiple injuries for the Islanders, but with the team getting healthier, Brassard was once again at center Wednesday. Coach Barry Trotz said that Josh Bailey and Brassard can play either position, so this isn't the last time we'll see a switch. Brassard scored his sixth goal of the season in the victory.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: Goals in five straight games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard scored the game's only goal in a 1-0 win over Buffalo on Saturday.

Wow -- that makes five games in a row that Brassard has picked up a goal. He was a scorer back in his Rangers' days, but since then, Brassard has bounced from team to team, with the Islanders being his fifth since 2015-16. So far, he has seven points in 13 games for the Isles. His hot streak won't continue, but for now, Brassard is a solid activation.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: Scores in fourth straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard had an empty-net goal and an assist, plus a team-leading five shots, in Friday's 5-2 win over the Lighting.

Brassard's empty-netter with 36 seconds remaining extended his goal-scoring streak to four games. His five shots on goal also represented a season high. Brassard's current run comes after he began the year without a goal (and just one assist) in his first eight games. Perhaps the 32-year-old is beginning to settle in with his new club after bouncing from Pittsburgh to Florida to Colorado in 2018-19.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: Second straight game with a goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard scored a goal on three shots and picked up two PIM in Friday's 4-2 win over Ottawa.

Brassard beat Ottawa goalie Anders Nilsson from the left faceoff dot six minutes into the second period, making it 4-1 Islanders and chasing Nilsson from the game. It was the second goal in as many games for Brassard, who had just one assist in his first eight games. His days of being a meaningful fantasy producer are likely behind him; he hasn't reached 20 goals or 50 points since 2015-16.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: First point with new team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard had an assist, two shots on goal and two PIM in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Jets.

Brassard helped set up Anthony Beauvillier's insurance tally early in the third period. The center was well-traveled last year, recording 23 points in 70 games between the Penguins, Avalanche and Panthers. The 32-year-old will be looking for more stability this season as the third-line center for the Islanders.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard (illness) participated in Monday's practice, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Brassard missed Saturday's preseason game due to this injury, but he'll be ready for Friday's season opener versus the Capitals. He's on track to center the third line alongside Leo Komarov and Anthony Beauvillier. This is a prove-it year for Brassard, who signed a one-year, $1.2 million contract with the Islanders this summer after posting 23 points and a minus-19 rating in 70 games last year.
