Derick Brassard Leaves Early

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Derick Brassard left last night’s game early with an upper body injury and will not return. He has hit by a shot by one of his own teammates and did not return to the game after that. We will find out more about the injury before their next game on Friday. He is currently projected as the 86th best fantasy center for the rest of the season, and the line against the Red Wings on Friday will not change if he is unable to make it.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

You can expect Derick Brassard to be a good bench player who will start in certain weeks the rest of the season. His 14 projected fantasy points puts him at #71 behind Anton Blidh and ahead of Pavel Zacha. He has averaged 0.96 fantasy points in his past 136 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 1.09 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#90) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. Derick Brassard is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #65 fantasy position rank.
