March 2013 - Brennan was traded to Florida for a fifth-round draft pick. He is not seeing regular minutes with the Panthers and has two points in five games (and minus-1). Upside just got a lot more promising. - Dobber
February 2013 – He made the team out of camp but has seen limited action thus far mostly being a healthy scratch. It is most likely that Buffalo will send him back to the AHL if they cannot get him out of the press box more often. Brennan was expected to help inject offence from Buffalo’s back end, but the blue liners have posted nine goals in 15 games thus far and Brennan has not added to the offence. Jason Banks
January, 2013 - Brennan was named the AHL Player of the Week for the week of December 30. The skilled defenseman had a goal and six points in six games for the Amerks. Rich Dillon
December 2012 - Brennan kicked off the AHL campaign with an astounding 18 points in 19 games. That's seven points ahead of fellow prospect defenseman and teammate Brayden McNabb, whom many thought was the more advanced of the two. He's tied for second in the league in points. Making great strides to make the Sabres when the season starts. - Dobber
October 2012 – On the cusp of being an NHL regular, Brennan signed a one season contract and was assigned to Rochester. To open the season Brennan was named an assistant captain of the Amerks, and has started the season with a bang, compiling four goals and four assists in six games. His negative five rating is disturbing at this point, his real value is based on production, but he will need to round out his full game to earn minutes at the next level. Jason Banks
February 2012 – Brennan played three seasons in the QMJHL with consistent production from the blue line. A late starter to the game after being a stud lacrosse player until 2006, when concentration to the game of hockey became real. Produced a respectable rookie season in 2009-10 with Portland in the AHL with increased point production last season. Got a taste of the NHL earlier this year with Sabres and hopes to use his big shot, smooth skating, and contributions on the power play to become a regular. - Russ Bitely
Brennan is a tremendous athlete with good skating ability, size, and willingness to learn game. Thus, his upside is fairly high

Fantasy Prospects Report Notes (Any FPR's released in the last 18 months will not be listed here):
2009 Fantasy Prospects Report:
More often than not, a player sees his production fluctuate from year-to-year. Not T.J. Brennan. One of the hottest commodities at the 2007 draft table, the New Jersey product was a surprise to pretty much everyone after an incredible 41-point rookie campaign with the QMJHL's St. John's Fog Devils in 2006-07. Projecting big things out of the 6'0, 205 lbs rearguard, the Sabres selected Brennan one pick outside the first round. While Brennan certainly developed and matured, 2007-08 saw him post an identical 16-25-41 statline to that of his draft year. And 2008-09? Well, the 19-year-old was just slightly under his usual pace when he was suspended for five games on February 11th for attempting to injure an opponent. In the stretch run, Brennan netted only two points as Montréal floundered without top offensive threats Luke Adam and Angelo Esposito.
2008 Fantasy Prospects Report:
Despite not having a first round pick in the 2007 Draft, the Buffalo Sabres had one of the best hauls of the two-day event. Their first choice was late-blooming blueliner T.J. Brennan. A big, mean rearguard who suddenly had the light bulb go on in the fall of 2006, Brennan's rookie year in the QMJHL saw him post 41 points in 68 games. So what did he do for an encore? Exactly what he did last year. For the second year in a row, Brennan led the St. John's Fog Devils in points from the blueline. With the arrival of Sekera, Brennan is at least three years away.
