Troy Brouwer RW WAS 10 Days

Brouwer scored a goal for the third time in the last four games Tuesday, notching a power-play goal for Washington's lone tally in a marathon 2-1 shootout loss to the Panthers.

Brouwer missed on his shootout try, but he's found some offensive touch of late with this little goal-scoring run. Nonetheless, he remains unlikely to contribute more than his typical totals of approximately 20 goals and 35-40 points.

Brouwer found the back of the net on one of his four shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Lightning.

Brouwer scored his first goal since Nov. 29 against Toronto. While he is not on the scoring level of Alexander Ovechkin, Brouwer has contributed nicely to the Capitals' offense this season scoring seven goals and adding six assists in 27 games played.

Brouwer found the net for the third straight game Sunday against the Coyotes.

While not a premier sniper, Brouwer is a capable contributor in a number of categories for both the Capitals and fantasy owners. The 29-year-old has compiled seven points in 11 games this season and has historically been a useful source of hits and penalty minutes as well. His run of goal scoring figures to phase out eventually, but that won't spell the end of his utility in deeper formats with specialty categories.

Brouwer tallied a goal in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Red Wings.

The goal gave Brouwer his first point in his last five games, which will hopefully break him out of his slump. He started the year off hot with four points in his first four games, so he certainly has the potential to be a valuable fantasy winger.

Brouwer picked up a pair of assists in Thursday's 6-2 triumph over the Devils.

He assisted on goals by new linemates Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom, and he could provide a nice boost for fantasy purposes as long as he's able to hold that position. He's got four points in as many games to start the year.

Brouwer skated on the team's top line with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom during Wednesday's practice, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.

The move comes after Washington's 6-5 shootout loss to San Jose on Tuesday night, so it's reasonable to expect the lines to be shuffled after such a game. However, given that Brouwer's face-off prowess is crucially important to the productivity of the second line, it's hard to see him being separated from Marcus Johansson and Andre Burakovsky for very long given that neither player is adept at handling face-offs. In any case, Brouwer's blend of goal-scoring and physical play makes him a worthwhile winger in all formats, and this move should do nothing to decrease his value.

Brouwer's goal with less than five minutes remaining in the third period sent Tuesday's game against the Sharks into overtime.

The Sharks would ultimately prevail in the shootout, but Brouwer's heroics briefly delighted a packed Verizon Center crowd that likely thought the game's outcome had already been decided when the Sharks raced to a two-goal lead earlier in the period. With two points in three games, Brouwer looks set to reprise his role as a reliable secondary scorer for the Capitals. He's mostly of interest to those in mid-sized or deeper formats, particularly those in which penalty minutes and hit totals are counted.

Brouwer scored the winning goal to propel the Capitals to a 5-4 OT win over the Bruins on Friday.

Brouwer cashed in on great forechecking by Jason Chimera during the extra frame. Brouwer has looked sharp in the first week of preseason, and seems poised to start the season on the team's second-line. Brouwer is also getting significant time on the team's primary power-play unit and getting chances with the man advantage. Given that he's available in mid to late rounds, Brouwer has significant sleeper upside as the regular season approaches, and is worth a flier in all fantasy drafts.

Brouwer finished with a goal and an assist to go along with three SOG in 18:00 of ice-time during the Capitals' 5-4 loss to the Flyers on Monday.

Both of Brouwer's points came on the power-play. He played on an even-strength line with Evgeny Kuznetsov, believed to have the inside track on the team's second-line center job. It's looking like Brouwer will be a fixture on a scoring line in DC this coming season, giving the power-forward some sleeper potential in deeper leagues.
