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

Brannstrom will begin the 2020-21 season on loan with Swiss team SC Langnau, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Brannstrom's season came to a close early due to an undisclosed injury but it appears the blueliner is ready for the 2020-21 campaign to kick off. In 31 appearances for Ottawa, the 20-year-old garnered four assists, 38 shots and 15 hits while averaging 14:51 of ice time.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Set to miss significant time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brannstrom will be out 4-to-6 weeks due to an undisclosed injury, Steve Lloyd of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

Brannstrom hasn't been up in the NHL since Jan. 2 versus the Panthers. In 31 appearances for the Senators, the blueliner registered four helpers, 38 shots and 36 blocks while averaging 14:51 of ice time. Given his recovery timeline, the Swede has likely played his last game in the NHL this season but should be ready for training camp.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Returned to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Senators returned Brannstrom to AHL Belleville on Friday.

Brannstrom's 22 shifts against Florida on Thursday were the lowest total he's skated in an NHL game since his most recent stint in Ottawa ended after the Dec. 3 game against Vancouver. The Senators clearly don't believe he's ready for the NHL yet and see no need to rush him, as he's only 20 years old and Ottawa doesn't look likely to contend until at least 2022. He's a stash option in dynasty leagues at the moment.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Rises to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Senators recalled Brannstrom from AHL Belleville on Monday.

The hype surrounded Brannstrom since he was part of the Senators' return for trading Mark Stone to the Golden Knights, but the 20-year-old blueliner has just two points and a minus-7 rating through 23 games. Furthermore, Brannstrom was averaging just 13:35 of ice time per game with the big club, so working top-pairing minutes in the minors benefited him, as he posted four points over four contests. The Senators hope his added confidence can translate to the top level.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Sent to AHL affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ottawa assigned Brannstrom to AHL Belleville on Thursday.

The Senators don't play again until Saturday against Philadelphia and Belleville has a game Friday night, so this may just be a temporary move to get Brannstrom more playing time. The 20-year-old rookie has notched two helpers while posting a minus-7 rating in 23 games with the big club this campaign.

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

Brannstrom (undisclosed) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Bruins, Hailey Salvian of The Athletic reports.

Brannstrom has missed the Senators' last four contests due to an undisclosed issue, but he'll return to his usual spot on the team's third pairing against Boston. The 20-year-old rookie has picked up two helpers while posting a minus-4 rating in 19 games this campaign.

November 24, 2019 12:36 PM
Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Still sidelined Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brannstrom (undisclosed) won't travel with the team for Monday's road game against Columbus, Hailey Salvian of The Athletic reports.

Brannstrom has been out the past three games with the undisclosed issue, but per coach D.J. Smith, the team is hopeful the 20-year-old can re-enter the lineup Wednesday against Boston. In his stead, the team expects Nikita Zaitsev (personal) to return to action Monday, with Cody Goloubef (undisclosed) still battling injury on the back end. Brannstrom currently resides on injured reserve, but he'll be eligible to be activated whenever he's deemed fit to play.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Won't play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brannstrom (undisclosed) will not be in the lineup for Friday's clash with the Rangers, Hailey Salvian of The Athletic reports.

Brannstrom will miss a third consecutive contest due to an undisclosed issue, which means Max Lajoie and Christian Jaros will be pressed into action. Once Brannstrom is given the green light, he should immediately slot back into the lineup, though his limited minutes (13:46 per game) make him a low-end fantasy option. The 20-year-old blueliner is currently on injured reserve, but he'll be eligible to be activated whenever he's deemed fit to play.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Stays on shelf Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brannstrom (undisclosed) won't play in Wednesday's game against the Canadiens, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Brannstrom will miss his second game in as many nights after getting "dinged up" during Monday's practice. Cody Goloubef will slot in on the bottom pairing as a result, and Brannstrom will aim to shake off the issue by Friday's matchup against the Rangers.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Won't play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brannstrom got "dinged up" in practice Monday and won't play Tuesday against the Red Wings, TSN 1200 reports.

The nature and severity of Brannstrom's injury aren't yet known, but he got banged up at a bad time. Tuesday's game is the first leg of a back-to-back set, and it's also the first of seven games in 12 nights for the Senators to close out the month of November.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Collects power-play assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brannstrom posted a power-play assist in Friday's 2-1 win over the Flyers.

Brannstrom had the only helper on Tyler Ennis' game-tying goal in the second period. It's only the second point of the year for Brannstrom, who has added 10 PIM, 15 blocked shots and a minus-4 rating in 18 games. The 20-year-old defenseman has yet to find his groove in the NHL, but he's only played in 20 career games so it's too soon to write him off long-term.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Struggling to produce points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brannstrom picked up his first career point on Oct. 10 against St. Louis, which was his only point so far in 11 contests.

More concerning for Brannstrom is that he registered a season low in both shifts (14) and ice time (7:59) against San Jose. Part of that could be because of the flow of the game, a comfortable Ottawa win, but it could also be a sign that head coach D.J. Smith doesn't trust Brannstrom right now. In either case, Brannstrom should only be owned in dynasty leagues at the moment.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Fine after skate to face
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brannstrom required a few stitches after taking Auston Matthews' skate to the face at the end of Wednesday's opener against the Sharks but will be fine, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Although Brannstrom is still chasing his first career NHL point, he did manage four hits, a shot on goal and two blocked shots on Opening Night. The 2017 first-round pick tallied 28 points (seven goals, 21 assists) over 41 games with AHL Chicago last season and another four assists in nine games with AHL Belleville after he was dealt to the Senators as part of the trade that sent Mark Stone back to the Golden Knights. The 20-year-old appears set for a regular role on the blue line and the power play this season for Ottawa.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Likely to be paired with Hainsey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brannstrom will start the year in Ottawa and has spent much of his time in practice on a pairing with veteran Ron Hainsey, the Ottawa Sun reports.

Brannstrom beginning the year in Ottawa and playing with Hainsey suggests that the Senators want to get him as much experience as possible this season. Ottawa is in no rush with him, so don't expect big numbers right away. He's best left on waivers at the moment unless you're playing in a dynasty format.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Sent back to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Senators shipped Branstrom back to AHL Belleville on Saturday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Up on emergency conditions, Brannstrom joined the lineup for Thursday's game against the Flames and blocked a shot in the contest. He should be among the first names considered for promotion if a similar situation pops up in the future, but he will return to the minors for now, where he owns four points over eight games since being transferred over from AHL Chicago.

March 22, 2019 02:28 AM
Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Earns call-up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brannstrom was called up from AHL Belleville on Thursday.

Brannstrom will immediately jump into the lineup against Calgary due to an injury to Cody Ceci (upper body). The 19-year-old will be making his second appearance in the NHL, having registered one hit and a plus-1 rating his last time out. The Swede will likely see similar minutes (17:20) as well.

March 15, 2019 06:04 PM
Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Demoted to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Senators sent Brannstrom to AHL Belleville on Friday.

Brannstrom posted a plus-1 rating during his NHL debut, but that was the extent of his contributions. Still just 19, the 15th overall pick from the 2017 NHL Entry Draft will retake his spot in the minors to gain some more experience before he's promoted on a permanent basis. He's spent most of the 2018-19 campaign with the Chicago Wolves as part of the Vegas organization, racking up 28 points over 41 games, but the Swede was dished to Ottawa as the main piece in a trade for Mark Stone.

Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Set to make NHL debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brannstrom was recalled from AHL Belleville and will skate in Thursday's home game against St. Louis.

The 19-year-old is one of the most coveted prospects in the game and will get a chance to make his NHL debut Thursday. Brannstrom was the key piece in a deal that sent Mark Stone to Vegas at the trade deadline. The Swede has 28 points in 41 AHL games this campaign.

February 26, 2019 10:48 AM
Senators' Erik Brannstrom: Dealt to Senators
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brannstrom and Oscar Lindberg were shipped to Ottawa in exchange for Mark Stone, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

If all goes according to plan, the Senators could have one of the best top defensive pairings in the game in 2020 or 2021 if Brannstrom pairs well with Thomas Chabot. He's notched 28 points in 41 AHL games, and with Ottawa hopeless this year, he'll likely be assigned to AHL Belleville, with a promotion to Ottawa possible as one of the team's four permitted call-ups should the Baby Sens fail to make the postseason.

Golden Knights' Erik Brannstrom: Shines in WJC opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brannstrom scored a pair of power-play goals to lead Sweden to a 2-1 win over Finland at the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship on Wednesday.

Named captain of the team just a couple days ago, Brannstrom responded with a huge effort in his team's opening contest. The Vegas prospect led his club with 23:23 worth of ice time and excelled in all three zones. The 15th overall selection in the 2017 draft has had a brilliant first AHL season (20 points in 24 games) as a 19-year-old and has little left to learn in the minors. Expect Brannstrom to be a full-time member of Vegas' defensive corps beginning in 2019-20.
