After another strong playoff performance with the St. Louis Blues, free agent forward Troy Brouwer has signed with the Calgary Flames, according to Bob McKenzie of TSN. Pierre LeBrun of ESPN tells us the big forward will earn $4.5MM per season, for the next four years. He should slide in as a second line winger with Calgary.
Last season, Brouwer played with St. Louis, scoring 18 goals and 21 assists in 82 games. Durability has been a strong point for him over the years as he has missed just one game in the past five years. Brouwer also was a key cog in the Blues’ postseason run, collecting eight goals and five helpers in their 20 postseason contests.
Brouwer has played in ten NHL seasons, split between Chicago, Washington, and St. Louis. In that time, he has suited up in 613 games, scoring 150 goals while adding 144 assists.
