It’s been nearly three years since Troy Brouwer played for the Washington Capitals and enjoyed the adoration of a committed fan club called the Brouwer Rangers.
If he’d forgotten about his spandex-clad fanboys, he was reminded recently during a comedy bit for his current team, the Calgary Flames. He did not seem to remember fondly.

The setup is pretty simple. Members of the Flames try to crack each other up with bad jokes. Things like, “Why couldn’t the toilet paper cross the road? … It got stuck in a crack.”
Okay that one’s actually kinda funny.
One of the jokes saw forward Kris Versteeg ask Brouwer what superhero he would be. A Brouwer Ranger. Get it?!
This was Brouwer’s reaction:
This is the face of a man who’s forcing a smile to hide the fact that his deeply buried wounds are suddenly being ripped wide open.
