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.

Derick Brassard

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.

Rangers' Brassard Fulfilling Promise?

News: Derick Brassard collected an assist in Sunday's 5-0 win over the Canadiens.
Analysis: While Derick Brassard played second fiddle to Derek Stepan in minutes, he's now got 16 points (six goals) in 20 games. Folks, it appears the former sixth overall pick (Columbus, 2006) may be blossoming into a point-per-game centerman before our eyes. If he's available, you may want to consider his services as the 27-year-old is on pace to break the 60-point mark for the first time in his career.

Friday's Game Postponed For Rangers, Brassard

News: Derick Brassard and the Rangers had their scheduled game Friday against the Sabres postponed due to the extreme weather conditions in the Buffalo area, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: With some parts of the region receiving up to six feet of snow this week, traveling to Buffalo would have proven quite treacherous for the Rangers had the game been played as scheduled. No make-up date has been announced yet for the game, but expect Derick Brassard to be in the lineup for the Rangers' next contest Sunday versus Montreal.

Two More Points For Rangers' Brassard

News: Derick Brassard tallied the game-winning goal and an assist in Wednesday's overtime victory over the Red Wings.
Analysis: That's back-to-back two-point games for Derick Brassard, who has compiled five goals and six assists through the Rangers' first 12 games. He's not quite Derek Stepan, but he's doing a great job of keeping the Rangers afloat while their top center has remained out with a broken leg.

Rangers' Brassard Adds Pair Of Helpers

News: Derick Brassard tallied two assists over 22:27 of ice time in Monday's 4-3 shootout loss to the visiting Blues.
Analysis: Derick Brassard has come alive of late, pitching in six points in the last five games. With nine points in 11 games, Brassard has elevated his play nicely while taking on the Rangers' top center role in the absence of Derek Stepan (broken leg). However, Stepan appears on track to return this week, which will inevitably bump Brassard down the Blueshirts' depth chart, so owners will want to be mindful of where he lines up going forward. Right now, he's skating with Rick Nash and Martin St. Louis, but his production will likely dip once he's inevitably moved off that line.

Rangers' Brassard Nets Three Points Monday

News: Derick Brassard scored his fourth goal of the season and added two assists in Monday's come-from-behind 5-4 win over the visiting Wild. He also skated to a plus-3 and fired three shots on goal.
Analysis: All three points came in the third period, as the Rangers woke up to score all five of their goals in the stanza. Derick Brassard now has seven points in nine games and should settle in as a nice source of secondary scoring for the Blueshirts this season.

Rangers' Brassard: Goals In Three Straight

News: Derick Brassard scored the Rangers' lone regulation goal Thursday, marking the third consecutive game in which he's found twine.
Analysis: Derick Brassard's taken exactly three shots in all three of those games, which isn't a lot, but it's better than the one shot he totaled in the Rangers' first two contests of the year. Expected to fulfill a top-six role all year long, Brassard could be poised to eclipse his season high of 47 points, set in 2010-11 with Columbus.

Rangers' Brassard Bags Goal In Defeat

News: Derick Brassard scored a goal and attempted three shots in Tuesday's loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: Derick Brassard's score gave the Rangers a 2-1 lead in the second period, but the Islanders would respond with five unanswered tallies to salt the game away. The 27-year-old has two goals and a minus-4 rating over four games on the season.

Rangers' Brassard Notches First Goal

News: Derick Brassard scored his first point of the season -- a third-period goal -- in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Passed over in favor of Martin St. Louis for top-line center duties in the wake of Derek Stepan's long-term injury, Derick Brassard has been mostly a disappointment to open the season. Though he's no longer sitting on a bagel in the points category, he's attempted just four shots on goal and currently sits on a minus-4 rating through three games.

Rangers Sign Brassard

News: The Rangers re-signed Derick Brassard to a five-year, $25 million contract extension Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: Derick Brassard filed for salary arbitration with the Rangers earlier in July, but the two sides were able to agree to terms on a new deal without an official hearing. The center racked up 18 goals and 27 assists in 81 games last season, and will be counted on to help fill the hole left after the departure of Brad Richards.

Rangers' Brassard Files For Arbitration

News: Derick Brassard has filed for salary arbitration, according to TSN.ca.
Analysis: He's coming off a 45-point regular season and a 12-point postseason, and his role on the Rangers is growing. There's a big payday headed his way.

Rangers' Brassard Snaps Drought

News: Derick Brassard collected a goal and an assist in a double overtime loss to Los Angeles in Game 2 on Saturday.
Analysis: Derick Brassard, who also won nearly half of his face-offs, played nearly four minutes of power play time in almost 24-minutes of total ice time. The points also snap a two-game point drought for Brassard who has 11 points in 20 games this post season.

Rangers' Brassard Gets Goal In Return

News: Derick Brassard (undisclosed) potted a goal in his return to the ice for Sunday's Game 4 win over the Canadiens.
Analysis: Derick Brassard had missed the previous two contests after sustaining the injury in Game 1, but skated for an effective 14:37 of ice time Sunday. He should be available in a full capacity for the Rangers for the remainder of the series.
