Despite not practicing on Friday, Troy Brouwer is probable for Saturday's game against the Minnesota Wild.

Brouwer blocked a shot late in Thursday's win over Edmonton, but he was able to stay in the game. "We expect Brouwer to play," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. "But if he doesn’t go, we’ll put Upshall in there. But we expect him to play. We did something precautionary today just to make sure we don’t have this problem a week from now." The injury doesn't appear to be too serious.

Troy Brouwer will play with Scott Gomez and Magnus Paajarvi in his preseason debut with the Blues on Tuesday night.

In the regular season, Brouwer may play with David Backes, but the Blues captain is playing in St. Louis in the team's other split-squad contest versus Columbus. "Even though it's exhibition, I'm still trying to prove myself, where I'm going to hopefully help this team in the lineup," said Brouwer. "It's going to be a fun experience for sure."

Troy Brouwer is expected to start the season playing on the right side of David Backes.

The goal is to have him slot in at TJ Oshie’s old position. We’re not too optimistic about him performing to Oshie’s level there, or even lasting on the first line. Brouwer tallied 21 goals and 43 points, a career-high, last season. He fits better as a third-liner.
Sep 13 - 10:52 AM

The St. Louis Blues have acquired Troy Brouwer, Pheonix Copley and a 2016 third round pick from the Washington Capitals in exchange for T.J. Oshie.

Brouwer had 21 goals and 43 points in 82 contests in 2014-15. He's a clear step down from Oshie from an offensive perspective, but he does play a more physical game. We don't believe this trade will meaningfully alter Brouwer's fantasy value.
Jul 2 - 5:06 PM

Troy Brouwer believes that the Washington Capitals are capable of going deep into the playoffs in the near future.

"It could be a little bit of a mental block for some guys, for sure," Brouwer said. "You have to get over that, 'We haven't done this before,' and 'This is new territory for us.' When we do, and I know we will in the next few years – hopefully next year – this team is going to make a deep run for the Stanley Cup in the future. Guys have got to embrace it and they've got to enjoy it and they have to know that it’s going to happen." Brouwer won the Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks back in 2010. Washington meanwhile hasn't gotten past the second round of the playoffs since 1998. Brouwer is getting ready for the final campaign of his three-year, $11 million contract.
May 20 - 12:25 PM

Troy Brouwer recorded two points in the Capitals’ 4-3 overtime loss against the Senators on Saturday night.

Brouwer’s goal tied up the game late in the third period and he also had an assist. He has 21 goals and 41 points on the year, so he has an outside chance of toppling his career high of 43 set last season. Marcus Johansson and Mike Green each scored, while John Carlson had two assists.
Apr 4 - 10:17 PM

Troy Brouwer scored two of the Washington Capitals' goals in a 4-3 loss to the Nashville Predators on Saturday.

Mar 28 - 3:41 PM

Troy Brouwer scored a goal and assisted on another in the Washington Capitals' 4-3 loss Wednesday night to the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins.

Brouwer now has 18 goals and 14 assists on the season. Defenseman John Carlson also had a goal and an assist for the Capitals. Carlson has established himself as one of the NHL's better offensive defensemen, with 10 goals and 33 assists this season. Alex Ovechkin, one of the NHL's better offensive forwards, scored the Caps' third goal Wednesday, his 39th of the season. Ovechkin also dished out a game-high eight hits. Jason Chimera picked up a couple of assists.
Feb 25 - 10:57 PM

Troy Brouwer scored a goal and registered an assist in a 5-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets Thursday night.

Brouwer has 17 goals and 30 points in 59 games this season. His current pace is pretty much in line with what we expected him to do going into this campaign, so naturally we don't expect him to deviate from it much in the final months of 2014-15.
Feb 20 - 8:29 AM

Troy Brouwer scores two goals for the Capitals Tuesday as they dominated Los Angeles by a score of 4-0.

Brouwer's goals now give him 15 on the campaign with seven of those markers coming with the man advantage. Nicklas Backstrom registered a goal and an assist in the win while Eric Fehr also found the back of the net for the Caps.
Feb 3 - 10:18 PM

Troy Brouwer had two assists in a 6-2 victory against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Jan 8 - 10:29 AM

Troy Brouwer scored the game-winning goal with just 12 seconds remaining in regulation to give Washington a 3-2 victor over Chicago in the Winter Classic.

His 11th marker of the season came on the power play when it appeared as though we were heading for overtime. Brouwer has 18 points in 37 games this year.
Jan 1 - 4:30 PM

Troy Brouwer's power play marker was the only Washington goal in a 2-1 shootout loss to the Panthers on Tuesday night.

Brouwer has now tallied nine times on the season with four of those markers coming with the man advantage. Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin each picked up an assist on the goal.
Tue, Dec 16, 2014 11:27:00 PM

Troy Brouwer scored for the second time in as many games in the Caps' loss to the Blue Jackets on Thursday night.

The 29-year-old now has eight goals and 14 points in 28 games this season. Brouwer has been quite streaky this season as his points have pretty much all come in clumps, meaning a pickup for Saturday's game against Tampa Bay might pay off.
