Brass Gone For The Year

According to Scott Howson, Derek Brassard will have season-ending surgery in early January, which will put him on the shelf for 4 to 6 months. (Closer to 6, according to Howson)

A damn shame, given how brilliantly he had emerged as a top front liner for us, and the fact that he had a real shot at the Calder. Doubly painful to suffer this loss as the result of a fight.

Here's wishing all the best to Derek, and hoping he is back at 100% for next season. We will miss you Brass!!
