The Calgary Flames have placed ex-Cap Troy Brouwer on unconditional waivers for the purpose of a buyout.
If no team claims Brouwer, 32, by noon on Friday, the Flames can buy out the final two years of the contract. Brouwer has two years remaining on a four-year contract worth $4.5M annually. The Flames stand to save $3M against the salary cap in the next two seasons.

Brouwer recorded 43 points in each of his final two seasons with Washington, but 40 percent of his production came from the power-play. That production dried up after he left DC; Brouwer scored zero power-play goals in 94 minutes of PP time last season. Paired with weak even-strength play and diminished ice time, Brouwer struggled to reach 20-plus points in the last two seasons.
Brouwer was named alternate captain for the Flames in 2016. Last summer, the Flames left him unprotected in the expansion draft.
