Derick Brassard (posterior) will be back in the Rangers lineup Sunday.

Brassard missed Thursday's game with the injury and his return will shift Brad Richards to the left wing. "It's really frustrating when you're out because of a bum injury," said Brassard. "It's like, 'C'mon, just play through it.' I felt like I couldn't even skate." Brassard has 14 points in 32 games this season. More was expected out of him after he had 11 points in 13 games for the Rangers after being traded from Columbus as part of the Marian Gaborik deal but thus far he has disappointed.

Rangers coach Alain Vigneault feels Brassard has been inconsistent this season. He's worth keeping an eye on as Brassard does have top-six potential, but his short-term fantasy value is limited.
