Capitals sign forward Troy Brouwer to 3-year, $11 million contract extension

ARLINGTON, Va. - The Washington Capitals have signed forward Troy Brouwer to a three-year, $11 million contract extension.

The Capitals said Wednesday that Brouwer will earn $3.6 million during the 2013-14 season, $3.65 million in 2014-15 and $3.75 million in 2015-16.

The 27-year-old Brouwer had 18 goals and 15 assists last season while playing in all 82 regular-season games. He scored two goals with two assists in the playoffs.

The Capitals acquired Brouwer in a trade with the Chicago Blackhawks a year ago. He then signed a two-year, $4.7 million contract with Washington.

Quote of the Day

I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
