Washington Capitals sign Troy Brouwer

The Capitals have signed winger Troy Brouwer to a two-year contract worth $2.35 million per season. The details of Brouwer’s salary were first reported by TSN’s Gord Miller.

Washington acquired Brouwer, who was a restricted free agent, from the Chicago Blackhawks on the first day of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft in exchange for its first-round (26th overall) selection.

Brouwer’s new contract pushes the Capitals a little more than $1.8 million over the NHL salary cap of $64.3 million for next season based on calculations with the numbers available at Capgeek. While the Capitals still have flexibility and time — teams are allowed to exceed the cap by 10 percent in the summer — to tweak the roster, they also have one restricted free agent remaining to be signed in defenseman Karl Alzner.
