Brewer was a healthy scratch on Wednesday night, which was the fourth time in the past five games that this happened.

“It’s very hard on him, this is a very proud man, who has played well for us,” Lightning associate coach Rick Bowness said on Wednesday. “With the depth that we have, the guys that are sitting are not playing their way out of the lineup. It’s a case that we have depth and we are trying to use everyone.”

This season, the 35-year-old has played in 17 games with the Lightning. He has four assists and a 5 +/- rating with 14 shots on goal.

Brewer spent the past four years and the first part of the season with the Lightning. He previously played for the St. Louis Blues, Edmonton Oilers, and the New York Islanders.
