Derick Brassard came up big for Ottawa on Saturday by scoring two goals and registering an assist.

Brassard has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last five games. He's been on fire this season with six goals and 10 points in eight contests. That's big given that he was limited to 39 points in 2016-17. That campaign was a down season for Brassard and we have no trouble believing that his hot start is an early indication of him bouncing back. A 50-60 point campaign would be the ideal for him.

Derick Brassard scored his fourth goal of the season in Thursday's 5-4 OT loss to New Jersey.

Brassard has accounted for seven points through seven games after he had 39 points in 81 outings last year. This is shaping up to be a much more productive campaign for the former Rangers center.

Derick Brassard had a goal and two assists in Ottawa's 5-4 shootout loss to the Washington Capitals.

It's an impressive start to the season for a guy who underwent shoulder surgery during the summer. Brassard had a disappointing first year with the Senators last year, as he only picked up 14 goals and 39 points in 81 games. It's not uncommon for players to struggle in their first year with a new team. He won't continue producing at this rate, but he does have the potential to hit the 50-point mark. Brassard only has value in deeper standard leagues.

Derick Brassard (shoulder) will play in Thursday's game against the Washington Capitals.

Brassard underwent shoulder surgery during the offseason, but he was cleared for contact late last month. The 30-year-old had 14 goals and 39 points in 81 games during his first year with the Senators in 2016-17. He has the ability to improve on those numbers.

Derick Brassard (shoulder) is waiting to get the green light from doctors.

"It's going to be a decision with our doctors and the doctors at the Cleveland Clinic," Brassard said. "If the surgery was like four or five days before (the exact four-month date), I would probably be OK to play. I still don't know if I can or not." He is expected to find out his status for Ottawa's opener on Thursday morning. Brassard feels ready to play, but he understands the decision isn't his to make.

Derick Brassard (shoulder) could be ready for Thursday's season opener.

Brassard was cleared for contact over the weekend and if he continues to progress this week then he should play against Washington.

Sep 22 - 4:13 PM

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."

Sep 13 - 7:21 PM

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.
Sep 6 - 8:03 AM

The Senators are encouraged by the progress Derick Brassard has made in the short time following his shoulder surgery.

The surgery toook place on June 6th and Brassard is already working out, which is a very good sign. The Sens are hoping Brassard will be ready to start the season in October, but the initial recovery time put his return a few weeks later than that. Stay tuned for further updates throughout the summer.

Derick Brassard underwent successful shoulder surgery on Tuesday.

Senators GM Pierre Dorion said the procedure went "according to plan." Brassard's recovery time is still projected to be four-to-five months. We'll keep you posted on his status because it could keep him on the shelf for the start of the 2017-18 season.
Jun 6 - 2:54 PM

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.
