Brouwer inked a one-year contract with Florida on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

While Brouwer could add some veteran leadership to the lineup, he could just as easily find himself relegated to a spot in the press box from some of the Panthers' young prospects. The club also needs to decide whether to add Mark Letestu -- who is currently on a PTO -- to the 23-man roster, which further complicates Brouwer's position with the team.

Brouwer was officially bought out by the Flames on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Having cleared unconditional waivers, Bouwer now finds himself a free agent, having had the final two years of his contract bought out. A $4.5 million cap hit would have been tough for most teams to take on, so if he does sign with an NHL club, it will likely be for a significantly reduced salary. The 32-year-old could instead opt for retirement or head overseas if no NHL deal materializes.

Brouwer was placed on unconditional waivers by Calgary on Thursday, with the team intending to buy out of his contract.

EDGE Analysis

Brouwer has two years remaining on a contract worth $4.5 million each year. The 32-year-old forward only managed 22 points (six goals, 16 assists) in 76 games last season, and Calgary will save $3 million throughout the next two seasons if another team fails to sign him by Friday.

Brouwer finished the 2017-18 campaign amid a 10-game goalless streak.

EDGE Analysis

In addition to his goal drought, Brouwer also went nine games without a point, before picking up a pair of assists in the season finale. The winger failed to reach the 10-goal threshold for the first time since becoming a full time NHL player in 2008-09, as well as registering the fewest points in his career. Despite his struggles this past year, the veteran should continue to slot into a top-six role with the Flames and will have a chance to put 2017-18 in his rearview mirror.

Brouwer recorded a goal and an assist during Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

After notching a first-period assist, Brouwer received a mid-game promotion to the No. 1 line with Sean Monahan and Johnny Gaudreau. The veteran's second-period tally tied the game, and also gave Brouwer his second multi-point showing of the season. He's recorded just five goals and 14 assists for the campaign, so unless he sticks in a top-line gig, his fantasy value remains tied to deep settings.

Brouwer scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 5-1 win over Colorado.

EDGE Analysis

The goal snapped a 16-game goal drought. The 32-year-old winger's role has changed and the days of 40-plus points are behind him. But Brouwer can still be clutch when needed. Unfortunately, there's no fantasy category for clutch.

Brouwer (face) has been cleared to play and will return to the lineup for Wednesday's road contest against the Golden Knights, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brouwer will need to be officially activated from injured reserve prior to playing in Wednesday evening's game, but barring a last minute setback, there's no reason to think that the veteran winger won't return to action after a six-game absence. The Vancouver native is more of a physical presence than an offensive one, so expect him to see most of his action with Calgary's checking line.

Brouwer (face) will be evaluated on a day-to-day basis moving forward, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brouwer, who remains on injured reserve, almost assuredly will miss Saturday's contest against the Panthers, but it would surprise us if he doesn't return by the end of the month. The 32-year-old winger has compiled 15 points (three goals, 12 assists) through 54 games this season.

Brouwer (face) was placed on injured reserve Monday.

EDGE Analysis

The move was made retroactively to Feb. 8 and his status remains week-to-week. Due to a suspected groin injury, netminder Mike Smith was ruled out of Tuesday's game against Boston, so the Flames placed Brouwer on the injured list in order to create the necessary roster space for recalling goaltender Jon Gillies from the AHL. Calgary can be expected to provide updates on Brouwer's condition as it improves and he nears a return to the lineup.

Brouwer is week-to-week with a facial fracture, Kristen Anderson of The Calgary Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brouwer will be able to return to practice in a few days, but he'll need the fractures to heal fully before he can take contact. The 32-year-old winger has averaged just 13:38 of ice time through 54 games this season, compiling three goals, 15 points and 51 PIM. His physical presence will be replaced by either Curtis Lazar or Ryan Lomberg for the time being.
