Coyotes' Derick Brassard: Grabs power-play helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard had a power-play assist and two hits in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

Brassard picked up the secondary helper on Nick Schmaltz's second-period tally. The 33-year-old Brassard is doing well with the Coyotes -- he has three assists, five hits and a plus-1 rating through three contests despite skating in a third-line role. Brassard's production will benefit from his power-play usage, but he's only likely to be a factor in deeper fantasy formats.

Coyotes' Derick Brassard: Two helpers against Sharks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard picked up two assists in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Sharks.

The veteran center chipped in on Arizona's final two goals of the afternoon, including Jakob Chychrun's eventual game-winner -- Brassard won a faceoff in the San Jose zone and tapped the puck back to the point, where Chychrun then wired it home. Brassard is incredibly playing for his sixth team in the last four seasons, but the 33-year-old seems to be settling in quickly with the Coyotes.

Coyotes' Derick Brassard: Signs with Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Coyotes on Wednesday, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.

Brassard played in 66 games with the Islanders last season, picking up 10 goals and 32 points while averaging 13:42 of ice time per contest. The 33-year-old vet will likely have to settle for a third or fourth-line role with Arizona in 2020-21, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him center the team's second power-play unit, too.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: In lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard (undisclosed) will suit up for Friday's Game 3 contest against Tampa Bay, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

It's unclear if Brassard was injured or a healthy scratch for Game 2 on Wednesday, but he'll jump back into the lineup Friday. The 32-year-old forward has two goals and five points in his last six games.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: Surprise scratch Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard (undisclosed) won't suit up for Wednesday's Game 2 matchup against Tampa Bay, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

It's unclear as to the specifics of the absence, but it's likely serious if he's forced to miss Game 2 of the Conference Finals. In Brassard's stead, Andrew Ladd and Leo Komarov are expected to enter the lineup.

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

Brassard had a goal and assist with three shots in a 5-4 double-overtime loss to the Flyers in Game 6 on Thursday. He also had four hits and two PIM.

Brassard got the Islanders on the board late in the first period just after a New York power play expired, deflecting a Devon Toews shot to chip into a 2-0 deficit. He also picked up the lone assist on Mathew Barzal's go-ahead goal late in the second period. Brassard has lit the lamp in back-to-back games after going 10 straight games without a goal to begin the playoffs.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: Scores late to force OT
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brassard scored a goal on two shots and had a pair of hits Tuesday in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Flyers in Game 5.

Brassard's first goal of the playoffs came at an opportune time for the Islanders, who erased a 3-1 deficit late in the third period. Trailing 3-2 with less than three minutes left in regulation, New York worked an offensive-zone cycle that resulted in an easy tap-in at the side of the net for Brassard. The 32-year-old had gone his first 10 playoff games without a goal and had last found the net back on Feb. 8.

Islanders' Derick Brassard: Provides pair of assists
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.
