Derick Brassard was in town on Thursday to work with the kids at the Rangers Summer Youth Hockey Camp after spending much of his summer back home in Quebec. Ecstatic to be a Ranger following last spring's trade to New York from Columbus Brassard chatted exclusively with Jim Cerny from BlueshirtsUnited.com about why that trade was so good for his career, the experience of playing in his first Stanley Cup Playoffs last April and May, how he and his teammates are so excited to play for new head coach Alain Vigneault, and why he has been using a pair of Jeff Halpern's gloves since becoming a Ranger.
