Brouwer fought Zack Kassian early in the second period during a 4-1 win over Edmonton on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

The Panthers had yet to score when Brouwer dropped mitts with Kassian but found the back of the net only three and a half minutes after the scrap. While Brouwer hasn't managed to add much offensively he has been a strong veteran presence on the fourth line for the Cats.

Brouwer was practicing on the second line Wednesday after the Panthers have gone 0-2-2 to start the season, George Richards of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Panthers second line has struggled to open the season and head coach Bob Boughner has shuffled to lines in an effort to kickstart it. Jonathan Huberdeau was taken off the second line in favor of Brouwer, but this change should not be long term. Boughner has been moving players like Mike Hoffman and Colton Sceviour down in the lineup temporarily to spark their performance. Brouwer has a goal and an assist in four games this season.

Brouwer had a textbook redirect midway through the second period to give the Panthers the lead in their eventual 5-4 loss to the Blue Jackets on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

The fourth line of Brouwer, Colton Sceviour and Juho Lammikko was impactful for the Panthers in their second game of the series, but it was Brouwer who put the line on the scoresheet. After only finding the back of the net six times last season with Calgary, Brouwer seems to be re-energized with his new linemates in Florida. The fourth line outshot their opponents 8-2 during Thursday's loss and head coach Bob Boughner will be keeping the combination together for the near future.

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.
