Derick Brassard (born September 22, 1987) is a Canadian ice hockey player who currently plays as a centre for the Columbus Blue Jackets of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Brassard was selected in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft by the Columbus Blue Jackets with the 6th overall pick. Considered one of the better skaters in the 2006 Entry Draft by both NHL Central Scouting and the International Scouting Service, Brassard is said to be a "great playmaker that can score as well." In his first month with the Blue Jackets' farm team, the Syracuse Crunch, he was named rookie of the month. While a broken jaw sidelined him for two months, he continued to tear up the American Hockey League (AHL).

Brassard was recalled to Columbus on January 10, 2008.
