Pittsburgh Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford is listening to offers on Derick Brassard, and there's an expectation that the veteran center will be dealt, according to TSN's Darren Dreger.
"I know that Jim Rutherford is at least listening to some of the interest in Derick Brassard. The expectation is that he will get traded, and the Pittsburgh Penguins, at least, in return need a No. 3 center back," Dreger said on Tuesday's edition of "Insider Trading."
Brassard was acquired by the Penguins last season in a three-way trade prior to the deadline that involved the Ottawa Senators and Vegas Golden Knights. He slots in behind Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin on Pittsburgh's depth chart and has had trouble producing since arriving in Pennsylvania, amassing 10 goals and 11 assists in 50 regular season games.
