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.

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.

Rangers' Brassard (Undisclosed) Says He'll Play

News: Derick Brassard (undisclosed) said on Saturday that he will play in Game 4, Pat Leonard of New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Derick Brassard left Game 1 with an undisclosed injury and missed the last two games because of it. It appears he is ready to return and will be needed with the Rangers possibly missing both Derek Stepan and Daniel Carcillo on Sunday, Stepan due to a broken jaw and Carcillo with a likely suspension.

Rangers' Brassard (Undisclosed) Practices Saturday

News: Derick Brassard (undisclosed) was on the ice for Saturday's practice.
Analysis: Derick Brassard has missed the past two games with the undisclosed injury, but appears to be on track for a return in the near future. With Derek Stepan dealing with a broken jaw and Daniel Carcillo likely to face a 10-game suspension, Brassard's return couldn't come sooner for the Rangers. The question is whether he will be available for Game 4 on Sunday or if the Rangers will have to wait a little longer, something that should be cleared up as closer to game time.

Rangers' Brassard (Undisclosed) Out For Game 3

News: Derick Brassard (undisclosed) will not play in Thursday's Game 3, the Rangers' official Twitter account reports.
Analysis: Derick Brassard will miss a second consecutive game after suffering an undisclosed injury during last Saturday's Game 1 versus Montreal. He should be considered day-to-day moving forward.

Rangers' Brassard Likely To Miss Game 3

News: Coach Alain Vigneault would only say that Derick Brassard (undisclosed) is "still day-to-day" after Thursday's morning skate in advance of Game 3 vs. the Canadiens, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Vigneault's words would seem to suggest Derick Brassard will miss his second straight game, but the center's status should be known for certain based on his participation (or lack thereof) during the Rangers' pregame skate.

Rangers' Brassard Practices

News: Derick Brassard (undisclosed) participated in Wednesday's practice, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: It looks like Derick Brassard is feeling better than he was Monday, so there's a good chance he could be in the lineup Thursday. The team is still calling him day-to-day for now, though, so keep an eye out for another update before Game 3.

Rangers' Brassard Out For Monday

News: Derick Brassard (undisclosed) will not play Monday against the Canadiens, Renaud Lavoie of Journal de Montreal reports.
Analysis: Derick Brassard left Saturday's game with an undisclosed injury, and it will cost him a roster spot in Monday's Game 2 as well. There's no word yet on the nature of his injury, so the only thing to do is continue to consider him day-to-day at this point.

Rangers' Brassard Leaves With Apparent Back Injury

News: Derick Brassard left Saturday's Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals with what appeared to be a back injury, Katie Strang of ESPN New York reports.
Analysis: Derick Brassard didn't return to the bench in the second period and with a 4-1 Rangers lead heading into the third, he will likely sit the rest of the game.
