Troy Brouwer (born August 17, 1985) is a Canadian professional ice hockey winger currently playing for the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League (NHL). He has also played for the Chicago Blackhawks.
Playing career 
Brouwer was educated at North Delta Secondary School. He was drafted 214th overall in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft by the Chicago Blackhawks. Brouwer spent his major junior career in the Western Hockey League (WHL) with the Moose Jaw Warriors. In his final year with the Warriors in 2005–06, he was named team captain and led Moose Jaw with a team-high 49 goals and 53 assists. Brouwer's 102 points also led the league in points, by which he was awarded the Bob Clarke Trophy.
Brouwer was assigned to the Norfolk Admirals, the Blackhawks' American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate in 2006–07, where he recorded 79 points and was named to the AHL All-Rookie and Second All-Star Team. He also made his NHL debut that season, playing 10 games with the Blackhawks. As a Blackhawk, Brouwer joined three of his previous minor hockey teammates, Colin Fraser, Brent Seabrook and Andrew Ladd from his Vancouver team, the Pacific Vipers.
In the 2007–08 season, Brouwer was again in the AHL with the Rockford IceHogs, Chicago's newly assigned AHL affiliate. Although his production dropped to 54 points in 75 games, he scored a franchise-record 25 powerplay goals, just two shy of the league record. Recalled by the Blackhawks for a short two-game stint, Brouwer recorded his first NHL point, an assist on March 23, 2008, against the St. Louis Blues. On June 9, 2010 Brouwer won his first Stanley Cup.
