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.

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.

Troy Brouwer expects more out of himself.

"I've got to be more consistent as far as being more involved in the game," Brouwer said. "I just need to be more of a factor in games rather than just kind of being there." He has six goals and 12 points in 26 games in 2014-15. He can do better than that, but he doesn't have much, if any, fantasy value in standard leagues.

The Washington Capitals held a players only meeting.

They are in the midst of a four game losing streak. "We have to work harder," Troy Brouwer said. "We’ve got to work smarter. It’s not one or two guys; it’s collectively every guy in here that needs to be better. It’s not something that is going to change tonight or change tomorrow. We’ve got to work at it and be on guys to make sure they are giving their best every night and that’s the only way we’ll get better."

Troy Brouwer practiced alongside Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom on Wednesday.

That's quite an upgrade over Brouwer's old linemates of Andre Burakovsky and Marcus Johansson. The Capitals lines are bound to change frequently over the course of the season, but Brouwer's fantasy value is temporarily higher as long as he's on Washington's first line.
