Brouwer gets new 3 year deal.

The Washington Capitals have re-signed forward Troy Brouwer to a three-year, $11 million contract. The deal is reportedly worth $3.65 million in 2013-14, $3.7 million the following season, and $3.75 million in the third season.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: The average annual salary is just over $3.666 million, a nice bump above the $2.35 million he’ll earn this season in the final year of his current contract. Brouwer was acquired from Chicago by the Capitals to provide more grit and leadership to their roster. This contract proves management was pleased with his efforts.
