Capitals Sign Troy Brouwer to Three-Year Contract Extension

ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals have re-signed forward Troy Brouwer to a three-year, $11 million contract extension, vice president and general manager George McPhee announced today. Brouwer will earn $3.6 million in 2013-14, $3.65 million in 2014-15 and $3.75 million in 2015-16.

“We are pleased to sign Troy Brouwer to a contract extension, said McPhee. “Troy is a physical and versatile power forward who can play both wings and who has averaged close to 20 goals in the past three seasons. He is a Stanley Cup winner and a great leader. We are thrilled that he will continue his career in Washington for many years to come.”

Brouwer, 27, collected 33 points (18 goals, 15 assists) and 61 penalty minutes in 82 games with the Capitals last season. He finished the season ranked ninth in the NHL in hits (247) and fourth on Washington in goals scored. His 60 blocked shots ranked second among Capitals forwards and he was one of six Capitals players to appear in all 82 games. In 14 postseason contests, Brouwer recorded four points (two goals, two assists) and eight penalty minutes.

The 6’3”, 213-pound forward helped the Chicago Blackhawks win the 2010 Stanley Cup while tallying a career-high eight points (four goals, four assists) in 19 playoff contests.

During the 2009-10 campaign, Brouwer registered a career-high 22 goals and 40 points in 69 games with the Blackhawks. The Vancouver, British Columbia, native ranked third on the club with a career-high seven power-play goals despite ranking seventh in power-play ice time. In 320 career NHL games with Washington and Chicago, Brouwer has recorded 136 points (67 goals, 69 assists) and 222 penalty minutes.

Brouwer was originally drafted by Chicago in the seventh round (214th overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.
