COLUMBUS, Ohio - Derick Brassard's rookie season is over.

The Columbus Blue Jackets centre suffered a dislocated shoulder during a game last Thursday and will require season-ending surgery. The 21-year-old had 25 points so far this year and was tied for the rookie scoring lead with Kris Versteeg heading into Monday's games.

Brassard will have surgery early next month at the Cleveland Clinic Sports Health Center.

The former first round draft pick had 10 goals and 15 assists in 31 games. He was also a plus-12 and earned the NHL's rookie of the month award in October.
