TROY BROUWER HANGS UP THE SKATES AFTER 14-YEAR NHL CAREER

NOV 18, 2021  (15H37)      COOPER GODIN
After parts fourteen seasons in the National Hockey League, Troy Brouwer has announced his retirement.

The Vancouver, British Columbia native was selected in the seventh round, 214th overall in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft by the Chicago Blackhawks. In his fourteen years in the NHL, Brouwer played for Chicago, Washington, St. Louis (two stints), Calgary, and Florida.

In 851 career games, the 36-year-old had 363 points (182 G, 181 A), 595 penalty minutes, and was a -28. He added 35 points (16 G, 19 A) in 106 playoff games and won the Stanley Cup with Chicago in 2010.

"I'm going to miss the relationships that I was able to make over the years with guys on my teams and their families," Brouwer said. "Playing this game, you always get to meet new people, you always get to have experiences with those people and a lot of those you'll carry with you for the rest of your life. I'm going to miss that competitiveness, and I'm going to miss those big moments where you have an opportunity to do something amazing after you've worked your whole life to get to that moment."

Brouwer went on to add, "Not too bad for a young guy who was just hoping one day he could play one NHL game and flourish into a pretty solid career from there. You always hope you can play one NHL game. Then you hope it's 10 games, then so on and so on. There were some days where you get called up and sent down and you're not quite sure if things are really going to pan out the way you want them to. But perseverance, being surrounded by great people, great family and great friends can make it all work out."

Congratulations to Troy on a great career and all the best in retirement.
