Brouwer to consider all options after being sent to the minors

Tim Tucker   ·   27 janvier 2020
Just when veteran winger Troy Brouwer thought he had found a spot in the NHL again, the St. Louis Blues decided to send him to the AHL. Brouwer played 10 games for St. Louis after signing a PTO back in November, and then a contract for the remainder of the season, when the team was facing some injuries. Now that players are returning from the team's injured reserve, Brouwer finds himself in a tough spot.

In the 2010 entry draft, which player was selected by the Red Wings?
Darren Helm
Henrik Zetterberg
Jakub Kindl
Justin Abdelkader
Riley Sheahan
Tomas Tatar


According to Blues GM Doug Armstrong, Brouwer, who has 848 games of the NHL experience, will take a week to consider his options before deciding whether to report to San Antonio.

"He came back with the hope to stay with our team," Armstrong said. "Obviously as our health improved, (Sammy) Blais is very close to playing... I didn't feel it was fair to bring Troy out here (on the four-game road trip) and to do this on the road now knowing that we had extra players (healthy) now."

Armstrong said he plans to meet with Brouwer at the conclusion of the Blues' road trip to get his decision. There are only a few options that he has: report to San Antonio, try to find a spot with another team (NHL or elsewhere) or retire as an active player.

Brouwer, 34, won a Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2010. He also had one of his best seasons that year, scoring 40 points. After four years in Washington, he played a season with St. Louis in 2015-16. Following that, he signed a four-year contract with Calgary worth $18 million but his play dropped significantly. The final two years of his contract were bought out by Calgary and he signed a one-year deal with Florida as a free agent for 2018-19. At the beginning of this season, he was given a professional tryout with Florida for the team's training camp but failed to get a contract for the regular season. Upon his return to the Blues in November, Brouwer played 10 games, recording one goal.
