Per the team:

The Washington Capitals have re-signed forward Troy Brouwer to a three-year, $11 million contract extension, vice president and general manager George McPhee announced today. Brouwer will earn $3.6 million in 2013-14, $3.65 million in 2014-15 and $3.75 million in 2015-16.

Read more on Brouwer in our Rink Wrap of his 2011-12 season. Money quotes:

Acquired on Draft Day 2011 for a first-round pick, Troy Brouwer was brought in to provide a big, physical presence (and a bit of offense) to the Caps' top six. And at the end of the day, that's pretty much what he did - he brought the big body, the bone-rattling checks and a few fights, while chipping in 18 goals and finishing fourth on the team in that department.


After putting up 26 points in the first four months, his offense fell off a cliff to the tune of just seven points over the final three months of the season (with three in the final month) - at a time when the Caps, fighting for their playoff lives, needed every point they could get. The trend even continued, albeit at a more compressed rate, during the playoffs, as both his postseason goals came in the first round and he managed just two more assists - both in Game 5 - against the Rangers.
