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.
Oct 16 - 9:07 AM

Capitals forward Troy Brouwer scored a goal and added an assist in a 5-4 loss to the Flyers in Monday's preseason opener.

Brouwer represents an important depth scorer for the Capitals in the coming season, as does Eric Fehr, who also potted a goal and an assist. Michael Latta and John Erskine also found the back of the net for the Caps in the losing effort. Goaltending duties were split between Philipp Grubauer and Justin Peters.

Troy Brouwer scored a pair of goals for the Capitals as part of a 5-2 win over Carolina Thursday night.

Apr 10 - 9:58 PM

Troy Brouwer scored two goals but the Washington Capitals took a 4-3 shootout loss against the Predators in Nashville Sunday night.

Mar 30 - 11:05 PM

For the second time in his NHL career, Washington Capitals power forward Troy Brouwer reached the 20-goal mark.

He scored twice on Sunday in the Capitals' 4-2 win against the Toronto Maple Leafs to do so. Brouwer scored 22 goals and 40 points in 2009-10 and has a chance to match or exceed both totals this season (20G, 34P so far). He generates plenty of hits and PIM, too, making him a fantastic asset who's only owned in 47 percent of Yahoo leagues right now.
Mar 16 - 8:17 PM

Troy Brouwer had a goal and an assist on Tuesday.

Brouwer was on a 11-game goal scoring drought. He has 10 goals and 23 points in 53 contests in 2013-14.
Jan 29 - 10:59 AM

Troy Brouwer will fill in for injured right winger Alex Ovechkin again Friday night on Washington's top line.

Brouwer and the rest of the Caps were held scoreless in Ottawa without the NHL's top scorer in the lineup on Tuesday. Brouwer has struggled to find the net this year after a strong 2013 campaign, but has as good a chance as he'll ever have to get back on track tonight playing big minutes with Nicklas Backstrom.
Jan 24 - 6:16 PM

Troy Brouwer scored Washington's lone goal in a 2-1 shootout loss to Buffalo on Sunday night.

His eighth marker of the season was assisted by Mikhail Grabovski. Brouwer posted five of Washington's 50 shots in the contest, but they couldn't solve Sabres' starter Ryan Miller.

Troy Brouwer had two assists in Monday night’s 3-2 loss to Anaheim.

The 28-year-old winger is now on a four game points streak (1 G, 5 A) and has seven goals and 17 points so far through 37 games.
Mon, Dec 23, 2013 10:06:00 PM

Troy Brouwer has only nine points this season after a breakout 2013 campaign.

Brouwer had 19 goals and 33 points during the truncated 2012-13 season and averaged a career high 18:32 minutes of action in 47 games. But it has been a completely different story this season as he has only five goals although four have come on the power play. He has had a bunch of centers this season after relying on Mike Ribeiro last season and that could be hurting his production.
