Last July, the Big Lebrouwski was traded to the Blues in a deal that also sent goaltending prospect Pheonix Copley to St. Louis. The Caps received TJ Oshie in return. Brouwer’s contract expired at the conclusion of the 2015-16 season, and he signed with the Flames on the first day of free agency. His new contract with the Flames is for four years, with a $4.5 million cap hit.
Brouwer continues to wear the number 36, as he did in St. Louis. In September, he donned his Flames jersey for a great cause: the Calgary Pride Parade.
