Troy Brouwer has decided to hang the skates up. Troy had a fantastic career with the Chicago Blackhawks after being their 214th selection in the 2004 NHL draft. Brouwer would also go on to play for the Washington Capitals, St. Louis Blues, Calgary Flames, and Florida Panthers. Playing 851 games, collecting 182 goals and 181 assist for 363 points. Brouwer played a gritty game and wasn’t afraid to mix it up with anyone, Gathering 595 penalty minutes. Troy won the Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2010. during this run, he would notch four goals and four assists, totaling 8 points. I will never forget the heartbreak he brought to Blackhawks fans when he scored a late goal in the outdoor game verse the Capitals. Brouwer was the type of guy every team wants on their team. Heart and soul are what he brought on a nightly basis. Congrats, Troy, on your 14 year NHL career and best wishes to whatever the rest of life brings you. once a Blackhawk, always a Blackhawk.
Born and raised in Florida. My mom was raised on the south side of Chicago that's where my Blackhawks fandom comes from. I have played hockey my whole life, including losing in the National Championship game in 2010 with the Gulf Coast Flames. I love hockey and the NHL.
