As teams regroup for the post-ASG break, some players are getting left behind. On Sunday the St Louis Blues put former Caps forward Troy Brouwer on waivers. Brouwer, 34, has scored one goal for the Blues in ten games this season.

As the Blues racked up injuries early in the season, they signed Brouwer a tryout contract. That tryout eventually became a one-year deal worth $750k. Brouwer scored his only goal of the season against the Sabres on December 10, a layup off a successful dump-and-chase.
Brouwer averaged under ten minutes of ice time per game, the lowest since his rookie season. Of the 459 forwards who have played more than 90 minutes during even strength, Brouwer’s impact on St Louis’ shot share ranks 436th.
Brouwer played the plurality of his career, 293 games, as a Washington Capital. He scored 83 goals and 69 assists in that time.
In the summer of 2015, the Capitals traded Brouwer to the Blues for TJ Oshie.
