Penguins acquire Derick Brassard in three-team trade
PITTSBURGH– The Pittsburgh Penguins are gearing up for another title run.
The team has completed a three-team trade that netted them former Ottawa Senator F Derick Brassard.
The rest of the trade includes the Vegas Golden Knights acquiring F Ryan Reaves and a fourth round pick, while the Senators brought in D Ian Cole, G Filip Gustavsson, a first round pick in this year’s draft and a third round pick in next year’s draft.
Brassard, 30, is the real prize of the deal, and was playing well for a Senators’ team that is the third-worst in the league.
So far, Brassard has totaled 38 points on 18 goals and 20 assists this season.
Currently third in the Metropolitan Division, the Penguins are hoping this move puts them over the top.
