The Edmonton Oilers have acquired forward Derick Brassard from the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for a fourth round pick in the 2023 NHL Draft.
Brassard has 16 points (six goals, 10 assists) in 31 games this season.
The Flyers retained 50% of Brassard’s $825,000 contract.
“Brassard can play left wing, he can play centre,” Oilers general manager Ken Holland told media after the deadline passed. “He’s had a good playoff resume and gives us more depth as we push to qualify for a playoff spot.”
