Derick Brassard Blue Jackets

Columbus Blue Jackets have been stockpiling young scorers. Today, they drafted another guy to get the puck to them.
The Blue Jackets used their number six pick in the first round of the draft to take Derick Brassard. Brassard is a six-foot-one, 172-pound center who climbed the scouting charts in the last year.
Blue Jackets officials called Brassard a point-producer with lightning speed. The 18-year-old had 72 assists in 58 games last season for the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League team in Drummondville, but team officials say he still needs to complement his skills with a strength and conditioning program.Hopefully he will bring some much need scoring to the club.
