Derick Brassard (shoulder) is hoping to play in Ottawa's regular season opener on Oct. 5.

Brassard won't be allowed to practice with contact until early October, which makes his goal of playing in the opener a little difficult. "We’re aiming for Game 1, but it’s kind of complicated," Brassard said. "If that’s not happening, I’m going to try and join the team as fast as I can and try to help out."

Though it's not official, Derick Brassard believes he's ahead of schedule in his recovery from shoulder surgery.

Brassard had the operation on June 6th and was expected to be sidelined for four-to-five months. In other words, there's a good chance that he'll miss the start of the season if his original timetable proves accurate. "I haven’t really talked to the doctors and stuff, just doing the daily routines in the gym with trainers," he said. "We’ll see where we’re going to be when training camp opens. I would say I’m probably ahead of (schedule), but they would never clear you (for contact) before four months. I’m sure (doctors) will be cautious with it to make sure I’m ready to go 100 per cent." In the meantime, Brassard joined the Senators for a pre-camp informal workout.

Derick Brassard is scheduled to have shoulder surgery next week.

Brassard's procedure will repair a torn labrum and the recovery time is projected to take four-to-five months. "I think we're looking closer to the four-month range rather than the five-month range," said Senators GM Pierre Dorion. "But if it falls into the season, I don't think we're really going to change our mindset here with what we have with depth at center and there could be an opening for a guy like Logan Brown to see what he could do at the start of the year." Brassard posted 14 goals and 39 points in 81 games during his first campaign with Ottawa, but he was better in the playoffs. Still, his fantasy value will take another hit when is ready to come back from shoulder surgery.

Derick Brassard (undisclosed) was healthy enough to play in the third period, but Senators coach Guy Boucher decided to let him rest.

Ottawa was already down 5-0 after 40 minutes, so there wouldn't have been a point making Brassard play if he was even a little hurt. Brassard absorbed a blow from Pittsburgh's Chris Kunitz in the second period that likely contributed to the decision to rest him. Look for Brassard to be available for Game 6.

Derick Brassard didn't join the Senators for the third period of Game 5.

Brassard absorbed a blow from Pittsburgh's Chris Kunitz in the second period that led to him briefly exiting the game. He returned for the rest of the frame, but as noted above he wasn't on the bench for the third. Ottawa was down 5-0 through 40 minutes so there's little point in pushing Brassard to play if he's even mildly hurt.

Derick Brassard is glad that Ottawa's playoff series against the New York Rangers is over.

The Senators knocked out the Rangers in six games, but Brassard felt awkward throughout the series and sorry for his ex-teammates that their season was done. "I'm glad we won, but it sucks to see them sad and everything. It's just not a good feeling," Brassard said. "I just really didn't like it at all. I'm just so glad it's over. ... I had a really hard time. It really wasn't easy. I didn't know what to expect from the beginning, but I'm glad it's over." He potted just one goal in six games versus the Rangers after he had eight points against Boston in Round 1.
