The following year, he was traded to the Florida Panthers in deal that sent Nick Bjugstad and Jared McCann back to Pittsburgh. Florida sent Brassard to the Colorado Avalanche for a 3rd round draft pick in 2020 .
Brassard signed as a free-agent with the Islanders in 2019 and was part of the team that advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals in the Toronto/Edmonton bubbles in the summer of 2020. From there, he signed a one-year contract with the Arizona Coyotoes for 2021 and the Philadelphia Flyers the next season. The Flyers traded him at the deadline to the Edmonton Oilers for a 4th round pick.
