Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Rises to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brannstrom was promoted to the active roster Sunday.

Brannstrom has played in eight of the Senators' last nine games, putting up two goals, two assists and 16 shots on net. While that's strong offensive production from the blue line, the 21-year-old is averaging just 14:59 of ice time per contest. He's expected to be in the lineup for Sunday's road clash against the Flames.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Senators reassigned Brannstrom to the taxi squad Sunday.

Brannstrom saw 13:42 of ice time in Saturday's loss to Calgary, earning one shot, two hits and a block in the contest. He's played the past six games, so this move is likely a cap-saving measure. Brannstrom will look to return to the lineup for Monday's game against the Flames.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brannstrom scored the goal that chased Calgary starter David Rittich to the bench, beating the netminder with a long shot from well outside the Flames' blue line. The goal, which gave the Senators a 4-1 lead in the second period, was the second in as many games for the young defenseman. Brannstrom has two goals and an assist with nine shots over his last three games.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brannstrom was promoted to the active roster Thursday.

Brannstrom was sent to the taxi squad in a paper move Wednesday, but he was always expected to be back with the Senators ahead of Thursday's clash with Calgary.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Dropped to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brannstrom was assigned to Ottawa's taxi squad Wednesday.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Pockets first NHL goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brannstrom scored a power-play goal on five shots in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout win over Montreal.

Brannstrom threaded a wrist shot through traffic early in the second period for his first career goal. His five shots on goal also represented a season high. In fact, Brannstrom hadn't registered more than two shots in any of first six games this year. The 21-year-old now has one goal and two assists on the year.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Off injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brannstrom (undisclosed) was activated off injured reserve ahead of Wednesday's matchup with Toronto, Steve Lloyd of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

Brannstrom was already expected to play in Wednesday's game, so his activation is simply the last step in the process. Prior to getting hurt, the 21-year-old defenseman registered one assist, three shots and three hits in a trio of games in which he averaged 15:49 of ice time. Brannstrom won't offer much in the way of fantasy value given his limited offensive upside, making him a low-end option at best.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bransstrom (undisclosed) will be ready to return to action Wednesday against Toronto, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.

Brannstrom has yet to be activated from injured reserve, but that should happen prior to puck drop against the Maple Leafs. The 21-year-old blueliner has picked up one assist through three games this campaign.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With Brannstrom sidelined, Christian Wolanin is expected to be added to Ottawa's active roster for Tuesday night's game against the Oilers. Brannstrom will need to be activated off injured reserve before being eligible to play, so look for that announcement to precede the 21-year-old blueliner's return to the lineup.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Headed to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brannstrom is on track to be added to the active roster and make his season debut Thursday against the Canadiens, Sportsnet's Kyle Bukauskas reports.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Resumes practice Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brannstrom finished his quarantine and practiced with the Senators on Sunday, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

Brannstrom was loaned to SC Langnau of the Swiss National League back in October, and he relayed that he found his game, which is confirmed by eight points over 10 games overseas. The 21-year-old will look to carry that momentum back to the NHL. It's unsettled where he will draw into the lineup, but Brannstrom should work into the power play immediately.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Quarantined after close contact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brannstrom (undisclosed) is quarantined after being in close contact with somebody that tested positive for COVID-19, GM Pierre Dorion told TSN 1200 Ottawa on Monday.

It's unclear how much longer Brannstrom will be required to quarantine before he can resume skating with his teammates. Ottawa's first game is Jan. 15 against the Maple Leafs.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Headed back from loan
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Senators have recalled Brannstrom from his loan with SC Langnau of the Swiss National League, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Brannstrom played well during his time in Switzerland, racking up two goals and six helpers while registering a plus-5 rating in 10 games. The 21-year-old blueliner split time between the AHL and NHL in 2019-20, posting 23 points in 27 minor-league appearances and four helpers in 31 top-level contests. The 2017 first-round pick is expected to have a full-time role with the big club in 2020-21, likely skating on the Senators' second pairing and second power-play unit, but he almost certainly won't produce enough offense just yet to be considered a viable fantasy option.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Loaned to Swiss club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
