The Pittsburgh Penguins are among multiple teams "in the mix" for Ottawa Senators forward Derick Brassard, reports Darren Dreger of TSN.

The Penguins have failed to address their third-line center void since Nick Bonino left in free agency. Riley Sheahan has filled that role for most of the season, but he provides very little offense.

Brassard, 30, will be an unrestricted free agent after next season. He has 17 goals and 35 points in 55 games this year and has proven to be a clutch playoff performer, totaling 55 points in 78 career postseason games.
