Playing career[edit]

Brouwer during his tenure with the Blackhawks.

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.[1]

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.[citation needed] 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.

On June 24, 2011 he was traded to the Washington Capitals for Washington's first round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.[2] He signed a two-year, $4.7 million contract with the Capitals on July 6.[3]

During the 2011–12 season, on January 13, 2012, he recorded his first NHL hat trick against the Tampa Bay Lightning.[4]

Prior to the lockout shortened 2012–13 season, Brouwer re-signed to a three-year contract extension with the Capitals on September 12, 2012.
