Brickley skated just 9:05 in Saturday's season finale against the Penguins, finishing the season with a goal and three assists in 14 appearances.
Brickley was little more than a warm body called up from the AHL after New York sold off a couple forwards at the trade deadline. The unrestricted free agent will hope to compete for a job at the NHL level somewhere next season, but there's a good chance he's forced to settle for a return to the AHL.
Brickley was a healthy scratch during Wednesday's 4-1 loss to Vancouver.
Brickley is the 13th forward for the Rangers, but that role has offered the occasional appearance since coach David Quinn likes to use healthy scratches as a teaching tool. With just three points in nine games, Brickley's impact is limited even when he gets to see game ice.
Brickley potted a goal in Tuesday's win over the Hurricanes.
Brickley crashed the net hard on Filip Chytil's shot, using his body to knock the puck out of midair and into the net. The goal was originally waved off for using his arms to knock it in, but the review deemed there was no intentional motion and Brickley's first goal as a Ranger stood. The 26-year-old now has two points in three games with the Rangers.
Brickley was recalled from AHL Hartford on Thursday.
While not much of an offensive producer, the University of Vermont product impacts games with his skating ability and physical style. Expect Brickley to assume a bottom-six role for Friday's tilt in Buffalo.

Brickley signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Predators on Sunday. The deal is worth $650,000 at the NHL level and $300,000 in the AHL.

Brickley finished with four goals and eight assists over 44 games in 2017-18, while averaging 11:53 of ice time.
At the beginning of his rookie year, Brickley began to enjoy a steady presence on the bottom six in Florida. However, as the year progressed, he started receiving more and more time in the press box, and just appeared in four of the final 21 games after the start of March. Brickley was able to provide a steady physical presence though, pitching in 82 hits on the campaign, and did spend some time momentarily on the first line with Jonathan Huberdeau and Vincent Trocheck when Florida was battling injuries. Brickley is a restricted free agent, so it's unclear if he'll be back in Florida, but he'll likely have an opportunity to make an opening night roster no matter where he ends up.
Brickley scored the game-winning goal and set up the insurance marker in a 2-0 win over the Canadiens on Saturday night.

Brickley has been held of the scoresheet in eight straight games.
Interspersed among Brickley's scoring drought has been five games in which he was a healthy scratch. Even when the Massachusetts native is in the lineup, his minutes have been limited (11:42 of ice time per game), further depressing his fantasy value. Unless the 25-year-old can turn his game around soon, don't be surprised to see him sent down for a stint in the minors.
Brickley (upper body) will return to the lineup Saturday night against the Rangers.

Brickley (upper body) will not return to action Thursday night versus the visiting Blue Jackets, Matthew DeFranks of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
This will mark the third consecutive absence for Brickley, who's been a pleasant surprise when healthy; we're talking seven points (two goals, five assists) to complement a plus-6 rating over eight games. It will be difficult for him to sustain that 18.2 shooting percentage upon his return, but he's already done enough playmaking to justify holding onto him in deep leagues.
Brickley (upper body) will not be in the lineup for Monday's matchup with Tampa Bay, Steve Goldstein of Fox Sports Florida reports.
Brickley will miss his second straight contest with his upper-body malady. In addition, the team has not provided a timeline for his return, which makes the 25-year-old's status Thursday versus Columbus uncertain at best. When healthy, the Massachusetts native has been scoring just shy of a point per game (seven points in eight outings) and should factor in offensively again once given the all-clear.
Brickley (upper body) will not play Saturday against the Red Wings, David Dwork of CBS Miami reports.
This paves the way for Chase Balisy to make his debut in the bottom six. While Brickley is no lock to play in Monday's clash with the Lightning, Panthers coach Bill Boughner is holding out hope that his burgeoning forward (two goals, five assists) will be good to go for that home tilt.
Brickley (upper body) is considered doubtful for Saturday's home game against the Red Wings, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.
The American pivot is off to a terrific start, having posted six points through eight games to supplement a plus-6 rating.

Brickley is considered day-to-day with an upper-body injury, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.
It appeared as though Brickley might be dealing with a long-term injury when he had to be helped off the ice in the third period of Thursday's 8-3 win over Anaheim, so his day-to-day tag is a positive development all things considered. The 25-year-old forward is considered doubtful for Saturday's game against the Red Wings.
Brickley had to be helped to the locker room after colliding with Anaheim's Derek Grant in the third period of Thursday's 8-3 win over the Ducks, Eric Stephens of The Orange County Register reports.
The specific nature of Brickley's injury has yet to be determined, but it appeared to be serious based on the level of assistance he required to get off the ice and into the locker room. The Panthers should release an update on the 25-year-old forward's status ahead of Saturday's clash with the Red Wings.
Brickley got his team on the scoreboard early in the first period during the 4-1 win over Washington on Saturday.
After coming into the season with just five points in 23 games, Brickley now has two goals and five points in six games played already this year. While it's unrealistic for him to keep this pace for a full, 82-game slate, the Panthers must be excited about their bottom-six forwards being this active early in the season.
Brickley picked up two helpers in Florida's 5-2 win over the Blues on Thursday.
Through three games, that brings Brickley to three assists and four points on the season. The Massachusetts native is making his presence known on this Panthers team, scoring at least one point in each game thus far. After totaling just five points in 23 career NHL contests prior to this year, it seems like the 25-year-old is ready for a breakout campaign. He'll look to keep the scoring streak alive in Pittsburgh on Saturday.
Brickley notched his first goal of the year in the second period of his team's 5-3 loss to Tampa Bay.
Brickley doubled his career total with the goal, as his only other NHL tally came two seasons ago. With 13 minutes of ice time and a positive plus-minus rating, he's off to a better start than in his first stint with Florida. However, he'll have to show a lot more before he's worth trusting in the majority of fantasy leagues.
