Derick Brassard collected two assists in the Rangers' 4-3 win over the Kings on Thursday night.

Brassard's two credits could be argued away as the chain of possession was not necessarily maintained off his stick. Either way, he's been a force for the Blueshirts this season. He leads them in assists with 22 and is second in points with 33 through 36 games, looking well poised to set career highs in both categories after signing a big new contract over the summer.

Derick Brassard confirmed that he'll be able to play for the New York Rangers against the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday.

The 27-year-old has been fantastic so far this season, scoring 24 points in 27 games. Obviously beware of the impact the mumps can have, as he admitted to not feeling so great after practicing on Friday.

Derick Brassard (mumps) is projected to play on Saturday.

Brassard will take part in the Saturday morning skate before a final determination is made though. If Brassard is available, he will be on a line with Rick Nash and Mats Zuccarello, which means J.T. Miller will be playing a reduced role.

Derick Brassard (mumps) took part in Friday's practice.

Brassard was officially diagnosed with the illness on Wednesday, but he is presumably past the contagious phase. He skated on a line with Rick Nash and Mats Zuccarello. It's not clear if he'll play on Saturday, but if he does, expect it to be on that line. That would be bad news for J.T. Miller as he has been playing with Nash and Zuccarello.

Derick Brassard now officially has the mumps.

The Rangers had already been working under the assumption that Brassard was battling the mumps, but they didn't get confirmation until Wednesday. Rangers forward Tanner Glass previously missed four games due to the disease. Brassard has missed two contests so far.

Despite an earlier report to the contrary, Derick Brassard might not have the mumps.

The Rangers are working under the assumption that Brassard has the mumps and are acting accordingly, but they likely won't get confirmation of that until the end of the week. Brassard has already missed Sunday's game due to the ailment.

Derick Brassard is the latest victim to the mumps that have been ravaging the NHL this season.

Brassard had been slotted as their number one center between Rick Nash and Mats Zuccarello, and was on pace to set career highs in goals and points. He has been sent back to Manhattan. The Rangers haven't had traditional "true" number one center under Alain Vigneault, but expect Derek Stepan to step up in his absence as he's by far the most qualified.

Derick Brassard scored two goals in the Rangers' 5-2 win over Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon.

Brassard opened the scoring in the first period and added the go-ahead goal in the third period. The 27-year-old has eight goals and 19 points in 23 games this season. Brassard has been very good of late. He has registered 15 points in his last 15 games for the Rangers. Jesper Fast, JT Miller and Lee Stempniak also scored for the Rangers.

Derick Brassard had an assist in the Rangers' 5-1 loss to Tampa Bay on Monday.

Brassard has recorded a point in three of his last four contests. This is shaping up to be his best season yet as he already has six goals and 15 points in 18 games.

Derick Brassard scored at 1:50 of overtime to give the New York Rangers' a 4-3 triumph over the visiting Detroit Red Wings Wednesday night.

Brassard's goal was his fifth of the season. He also posted his sixth assist of the season on the Rangers' opening goal of the game - Rick Nash's 10th, on a power play in the first period. Martin St. Louis netted his fourth goal to push the Rangers ahead 2-0 in the second. Lee Stempniak scored for the Rangers in the third period, his third of the season. St. Louis also had an assist, on Brassard's goal. Defenseman Matt Hunwick recorded a two-point night as well, with two assists, giving him five on the season.

Derick Brassard had two assists in the Rangers' 4-3 shootout loss to the St. Louis Blues on Monday.

It was Brassard's second multi-point game in his last three contests. He's off to a hot start this season with four goals and nine points in 11 contests. It helps that he's been playing alongside Rick Nash and as long as the two stick together, Brassard will be worth owning in standard leagues.

Derick Brassard scored his third of the season Thursday night to tie the game at one, late in the third.

Dan Girardi shot for a deflection when Mats Zuccarello deflected the puck right onto Brassard's tape, who with his own deflection beat Anton Khudobin to tie the game at one. It was a pretty play, but also pretty fortunate. A goal is a goal, on the scoreboard.

Derick Brassard found the back of the net in the Rangers' 6-3 loss to Toronto on Sunday.

It was Brassard's first goal of the season. He inked a five-year, $25 million contract over the summer after scoring 18 goals and 45 points in 81 contests last season.

Derick Brassard is looking forward to receiving a larger role with the New York Rangers this season.

He's slated to be New York's number two center after the club bought out Brad Richards. "I try and improve every year as a player, but I am going to go about preparing myself the same way and I am going to be the same player, just try and be even better," Brassard said. "I think last season will help me and the whole team, because now we all know what it takes to really compete for the Stanley Cup. I want to mature as a player in all areas, and I want to take another big step." He made positive strides last season with a career high 18 goals and 45 points in 81 games. Brassard agreed to a five-year, $25 million contract on July 27.
