Penguins acquire Derick Brassard from Senators

According to TSN's Darren Dreger, the Pittsburgh Penguins acquired center Derick Brassard from the Ottawa Senators.

What It Means:

In exchange for Brassard, Ottawa will receive Ian Cole, Filip Gustavsson and a 2018 first-round pick. It's quite a haul for Brassard, but this will give the Penguins that much more firepower for the stretch run before and through the playoffs.

Through 57 games, the 30-year-old has 17 goals, 19 assists while averaging 18.3 minutes of ice time per game.
