Derick Brassard will miss the remainder of the season after having surgery for a broken fibula Saturday.

Brassard sustained the injury after getting tangled up with Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Felix Sandstrom and defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen late in the second period of Thursday's game in Ottawa.

"He's given us a lot of good games and he's provided us with a lot of leadership," D.J. Smith said. "He's helped with that second power play; he's got 13 goals. He's had a heck of a year and we're going to miss him."
