Brouwer registered a goal, an assist, two shots on net, two blocked shots, two hits, a minor penalty and a plus-2 rating during Friday's win over Florida. The two-point showing snapped a six-game scoring drought, and with just 10 goals and 21 points through 54 games, Brouwer is hardly moving the fantasy needle. Brouwer has struggled to find chemistry with linemates during his first season in Calgary, so until he begins to click offensively, you'll likely want to avoid him in the majority of seasonal leagues.
Brouwer has only managed two points in the last 15 games dating back to Dec. 20. The veteran winger was shelved for eight games during that stretch with a broken finger, but the issue is apparently behind him. Brouwer has received ample power-play time (2:11 on average) during that stretch, so it's not like the opportunities to produce haven't been there. With just 19 points in 49 games, the 31-year-old has failed to impress in his Calgary debut and will be hard-pressed to approach the 40-ish points he put up in each of the last three seasons.
Brouwer (finger) says he has been cleared to play and his return to the lineup is imminent, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports. Brouwer participated in line rushes during Thursday's practice, suggesting he should be all systems go for Friday's matchup with the Devils. The 31-year-old is projected to reunite with linemates Sean Monahan and Kris Versteeg after missing the last eight contests to a broken finger.
Brouwer (finger) was on the ice for morning skate Wednesday, albeit in a non-contact jersey, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet960 The FAN reports. The tenacious power forward is attempting to round out his recovery from a broken finger, an injury that he sustained in a Dec. 23 contest against the Canucks; he's missed seven games and counting. Calgary's schedule is packed with three games before wrapping up a road game this Saturday, so the hope is that he'll be fit to play in one of those contests.
Brouwer (finger) underwent surgery for a broken finger Tuesday and is considered week-to-week, Roger Millions of Sportsnet reports. Brouwer sustained the ailment in Friday's 4-1 win over the Canucks and it is now known that he'll miss significant time as a result. The 31-year-old right winger, who was on pace for his eighth consecutive 30-plus point campaign, will likely have his minutes eaten up by Michael Ferland while the team battles the injury bug.
