Biography

Defenseman Eric Brewer got his start in ice hockey with the Kamloops Bantam AAA Jardine Blazers of the British Columbia Amateur Hockey Association and was drafted by the Prince George Cougars of the Western Hockey League in 1994. In his first season, 1995-1996, he was named the team’s Rookie of the Year and stuck with the team until 1998, at which point he signed onto the National Hockey League’s New York Islanders. It was also the year that he first represented Canada internationally, as an alternate captain during its disastrous appearance at the 1998 World Junior Championships, although he had previously been a member of Team Pacific Canada at the 1995 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge. He stayed with the Islanders until the conclusion of the 1999-2000 season, although he spent part of his final season with the affiliated Lowell Lock Monsters of the American Hockey League. He was traded to the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers in 2000, who in turn traded him to the league’s St. Louis Blues after the 2004-2005 NHL lockout.

Brewer’s international streak of bad luck continued when he made his debut for Team Canada at the 2001 World Championships, but it was broken when he took home Canada’s first Olympic ice hockey gold in 50 years at the 2002 Winter Olympics. At the tournament he suited up for six matches and scored two goals. He was not chosen to help represent Canada at the 2006 Winter Olympics, but has since won gold medals at the 2003, 2004, and 2007 World Championships. As of 2010 he remains affiliated with the Blues, having been named captain of the squad in 2008.
