11 novembre 2019
Doug Armstrong, General Manager and President of Hockey Operations for the 18-19 Stanley Cup Champion St. Louis Blues, announced Monday morning that the team has signed Troy Brouwer and Jamie McGinn to professional tryouts.

Brouwer, who was drafted in the 7th round by the Chicago Blackhawks in 2004, has netted 362 points (181 goals, 181 assists) and 588 penalty minutes in 838 regular season games. Through his career he has also played in 102 playoff games, and captured the Stanley Cup in 2010 with the Chicago Blackhawks. Brouwer dressed and played in 75 games last year with the Florida Panthers, amassing 21 points. Blues fans surely remember him from his year with the team in the 14-15 season, in which he and the Blues made an appearance in the Western Conference Final.

McGinn was drafted 36th overall in the second round of the 2006 NHL draft by the San Jose Sharks. This season McGinn has played in two games with the 18-19 Calder Cup Champion Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League (AHL.) He’s a veteran forward of 11 seasons and has suited up for San Jose, Buffalo, Colorado, Anaheim, Arizona and Florida. Through 617 regular season games at the NHL level, McGinn has netted 220 points (117 goals, 103 assists) and 267 penalty minutes. He also has 8 career playoff points in 36 appearances.

McGinn will be in attendance for Monday’s practice, with Brouwer joining him and the rest of the team on Tuesday.
