Derick Brassard to Center Top Line

Standard Spin: With Jeff Carter sidelined by a hairline fracture in his foot, Derick Brassard will step up to the top line in Columbus alongside Rick Nash and Vinny Prospal. We like Brassard's playmaking ability, and he should be productive in the role. He's worth picking up for your bench, and possibly as a starter if Carter remains out more than a game or two. (Oct.18)
