Brassard's Early Goal Boosts Rangers In Game 1

News: Derick Brassard scored 28 seconds into Thursday's Game 1 victory over Pittsburgh. He ended up with five shots on goal and three hits.
Analysis: Ryan McDonagh made it 2-0 with a power-play goal later in the period, and then New York's offense dried up. Fortunately, Henrik Lundqvist held off the Penguins well enough for the win. After setting new personal bests in both goals (19) and assists (41), Derick Brassard should be a key piece of the Rangers' playoff push.

Rangers' Brassard Finds Twine In Finale

News: Derick Brassard attempted six shots and potted a power-play goal in Saturday's win over the Capitals.
Analysis: The six shots matched Derick Brassard's total from the previous four games combined, while the goal gave him his third point in six April contests. The 27-year-old ended up finishing with 60 points, besting his previous career mark by 13. He's primed to occupy a vital role in the Rangers' top-six ranks during the postseason.

Brassard's Two Points Help Rangers To Victory

News: Derick Brassard tallied his 40th assist of the season to go along with a power-play goal Tuesday in a 3-2 win over the Jets.
Analysis: March has been a slow month for the talented center, but with goals in consecutive games, he appears to be picking up his play at the right time. This has been easily the finest season of Derick Brassard's career, as he has 10 more points (57) than he's managed in any other campaign. With 17 goals to his credit, he's now one shy of tying last season's career high in that category.

Rangers' Brassard Scores In Loss

News: Derick Brassard tallied his 16th goal of the season in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Capitals.
Analysis: Derick Brassard has been streaky of late as he's endured stretches of three and four games without a point in March, but he was able to get back on the scoresheet Sunday to extend his career-high point total to 55. The center has been producing reliably for most of the season though, so owners should keep rolling him out down the stretch run.

Brassard Clutch Again In Rangers' Win

News: Derick Brassard logged an assist in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Islanders.
Analysis: Set aside the points in back-to-back games, or the four points in as many games, it's the second straight game the team's veteran center has been involved in the game-winning goal. With 17 points (two goals) over his last 18 contests Brasssard is really peaking at just the right time. The 27-year-old former first round pick now has a career-high 52 points through 63 games.

Rangers' Brassard Scores OT Winner Vs. Blackhawks

News: Derick Brassard scored the overtime-winning goal Sunday against Chicago.
Analysis: It was the 14th goal of the season for Derick Brassard, who now has 51 points in 62 games on the season. He's been producing steadily all season long and is sporting a plus-9 rating. The 27-year-old first-line center should be rolled out with confidence every game.

Rangers' Brassard Adds Two Helpers

News: Derick Brassard dished out a pair of assists in Monday's 4-1 win over the Predators.
Analysis: Derick Brassard had already established a new career-high point total, and he's now reached the 50-point plateau for the first time. The center has been producing consistently all season long, and also boasts a solid plus-9 rating.

Rangers' Brassard Picks Up Two Helpers, Stays Hot

News: Derick Brassard picked up two assists and had a game-high 10 shots on goal in Friday's win over Buffalo.
Analysis: This guy is on fire right now and he's showing no signs of slowing down. Derick Brassard is riding a six-game point streak and has compiled one goal and 12 points in his last 10 games. The top-line center has 47 points in 55 games on the season and is the perfect set-up man for elite goal-scorer Rick Nash.

Rangers' Brassard Extends Streak To Four

News: Derick Brassard registered an assist on the game-winning goal in Monday's 6-5 win over the Islanders.
Analysis: Derick Brassard continues to shine, extending his point streak to four games with five points over that span. Over his last eight tilts, the 27-year-old Brassard has a goal and eight assists. The point leaves Brassard just three points (44 in 53 games) shy of tying his career high of 47 points in the 2010-11 campaign with Columbus.

Rangers' Brassard Notches Two More Helpers

News: Derick Brassard cleared the 40-point barrier Tuesday with a pair of assists in a 5-4 win over Toronto.
Analysis: Brass is in the midst of easily his best NHL season, as he now owns 41 points in 50 games. He's set to blow by his career high of 47 -- maybe by the end of February. And he's been producing consistently of late, with six points in the last five contests.

Rangers' Brassard Excels Saturday

News: Derick Brassard collected two assists, with one coming on the power play, in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Predators.
Analysis: Derick Brassard saw his ice time rise to 20:00 with Derek Stepan (flu) unavailable, and certainly made the most of the extra opportunities. Stepan could return as soon as Sunday's game against the Stars, but it shouldn't dampen Brassard's outlook too much. The center has put up a goal and three assists over his last three games.

Brassard Snaps Out Of It In Rangers' Win

News: Derick Brassard collected an assist in Monday's 6-3 win over the Panthers.
Analysis: The helper snaps Derick Brassard's four-game point-scoring drought, the second such streak the veteran center suffered through in the month of February. Despite registering just a goal and two assists in his last 10 games, the 27-year-old still boasts 36 points in 46 games played this season.

Rangers' Brassard Grabs Two Points

News: Brassed chipped in with a goal and an assist in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Penguins.
Analysis: Derick Brassard had been on a season-high four game streak without a point, so it has to be an encouraging sign for his owners to see the center break out with a multi-point effort. Through 41 contests, he's well on his way to setting new career-bests in both goals and assists and now has 35 points on the year.

Derick Brassard

Rangers' Brassard Roller Coaster Continues

News: Derick Brassard was held off the scorer's sheet and posted a minus-3 rating in Tuesday's 3-0 loss to the Islanders
Analysis: That's two games in a row for the previous heated number two centerman. This is surely not a sight some of Derick Brassard's new owners want to see, but it comes with the territory as the 27-year-old has been streaky for most of his career. The former first round pick (2006) has 11 goals and 33 points in 38 games.

Rangers' Brassard Riding Four-Game Streak

News: Derick Brassard handed out a pair of power-play assists in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Kings.
Analysis: That's points in four straight now for Derick Brassard, who's showing no signs of slowing down from his career-best scoring pace. Glen Sather and the Rangers look like geniuses right now for retaining Brass this summer on a five-year deal that seemed a bit pricey at the time.

Rangers' Brassard: 10 Points In Last 10 Games

News: Derick Brassard picked up two power-play points -- a goal and an assist -- in the Rangers' 6-1 win over the Sabres. Twelve of his 30 points this season have come on the power play.
Analysis: He has points in two straight games (two goals, one assist) and 10 points, including eight assists, in his last 10 games. He's been a big part of the Rangers' recent surge up the standings. Use him well.

Rangers' Brassard Assists On Two

News: Derick Brassard picked up a pair of assists -- one on the power play -- and went plus-2 in Tuesday's win over Washington.
Analysis: Brass's career year just keeps on developing. He'd been held off the sheet over the last twogames, but ended that skid quickly Tuesday with a helper on the early-first-period goal attributed to Rick Nash. He hasn't scored a goal since finding twine twice against the Flyers on Nov. 29, but Derick Brassard has racked up seven assists over seven December games.

Rangers' Brassard Will Play Saturday

News: Derick Brassard (illness) will play Saturday against the Hurricanes, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Coach Alain Vigneault signed off on Derick Brassard's return after he was able to take part in the team's morning skate. The center missed the Rangers' last two contests with the mumps virus.

Rangers' Brassard Looks Ready To Go

News: Derick Brassard (illness) practiced with the Rangers on Friday and appears set to play Saturday against the Hurricanes.
Analysis: The Rangers have declined to call up an extra forward from AHL Hartford at this point, a sign that they're comfortable with Derick Brassard heading into the team's weekend back-to-back. Brassard skated in his regular spot Friday as the center for Rick Nash and Mats Zuccarello.

Rangers' Brassard To Skate Friday

News: Derick Brassard (mumps) will resume practicing with the Rangers on Friday, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: The Rangers put Derick Brassard under a five-day isolation period after he was diagnosed with the mumps last Sunday, and it appears the virus is no longer wreaking havoc on his body. Though ostensibly healthy, Brassard is no sure bet to return to the lineup Saturday against the Hurricanes, as it will likely hinge on how he looks during Friday's skate. J.T. Miller has been absorbing most of Brassard's ice time over the last two games.

Mumps Confirmed For Rangers' Brassard

News: Derick Brassard (illness) has been confirmed to have a case of the mumps, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Derick Brassard will remain away from the Rangers until his contagious symptoms have subsided. He's the 15th NHL player confirmed to have acquired the mumps this season, and the second Rangers player after Tanner Glass was diagnosed with the virus in late November.

Rangers' Brassard Suspected To Have Mumps

News: Derick Brassard was sent back to New York on suspicion that he has come down with a case of the mumps.
Analysis: It's not quite yet confirmed that Derick Brassard actually has the mumps, although he has been sent away from the team regardless and will likely be held off the ice for the near future. If it is indeed a case of the mumps, regular recovery time is approximately 5-7 days.

Rangers' Brassard Extends Points Streak Saturday

News: Derick Brassard extended his point streak to five games Saturday, racking up two assists in a win over Vancouver.
Analysis: Derick Brassard has been a monster this season and is easily one of the league's most underrated players. He now has 24 points (eight goals) in 27 games and has only been held off the scoresheet nine times. On pace for a career-high 70-point season, the top-line center should be owned in almost every league right now.

Rangers' Brassard Quietly Having Career Season

News: Derick Brassard will have a four-game point streak on the line when the Rangers get back into action Saturday in Vancouver.
Analysis: It's the longest point streak for the Quebec native since he tallied 10 points during an eight-game run in March last season. Currently ranked second on the Blueshirts with 22 points (eight goals) through 26 games played, the veteran center is on pace to eclipse the 60-point mark for the first time in his career.

Rangers' Brassard Scores Two In Win

News: Derick Brassard scored two goals, including the game-winner, in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Flyers.
Analysis: After getting blanked by Philadelphia the previous game and playing just 15:00, Derick Brassard responded in a big way with two goals and was rewarded with 20:23 in ice time. He also recorded four shots and three hits. Brassard now has 19 points in 23 games this season and is in the midst of a breakout year in which he could crack the 70-point barrier. His previous career high was 47, set in the 2010-11 season.
