Capitals sign Brouwer to 3-year, $11M extension

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - 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.

We've got a team filled with captains, that's what I think. With these first two games we got in, we're really dominating and moving the puck really fast, and it's worked out really good.
