Derick Brassard is looking forward to playing for his hometown team in 2016-17.

"I like that," said Brassard, who was born in Hull which is now called Gatineau. "I'm a player that plays with a lot of emotions and I've played in some big games in the last three years and I've always really enjoyed that. Just the fact I'm going to play in front of my friends and my family it's going to give me another edge to my game. I think I'm in the prime of my career right now and I think that's one of the reasons they went to get me. I'm just looking forward to playing my game. I'm not going to change anything but I want to show everyone they made a good choice (acquiring him)." The Senators were looking for a left-handed center and the team loves his playmaking skills.

The Ottawa Senators have acquired Derick Brassard and a 2018 seventh round pick from the New York Rangers in exchange for Mika Zibanejad and a 2018 second round selection.

The Senators are giving up a 23-year-old coming off 20-goal and 21-goal seasons, but in exchange they're getting a veteran forward who scored 27 goals and 58 points in 80 contests last season. Brassard still has three seasons left on a reasonable five-year, $25 million deal, making him a particularly good fit for a Senators team that typically doesn't spend to the cap. Brassard should play a big role with Ottawa, which will help him continue the success he's enjoyed with the Rangers in recent years.

Brassard was also a big part of the Rangers' 2015 playoff run with 16 points in 19 games so it will be interesting to see if he'll be able to find another level in 2016 as well.
