In 28 games he was 21-5-2 with 5 shutouts and had a 2.48 goals against and .923 save percentage.

In June he announced that he was foregoing college hockey to play for the QMJHL’s Gatineau Olympiques in 2013-14. Not among the 35 North American goaltenders in Central Scouting’s final rankings, he was selected by New Jersey in the seventh round (208th overall) of the 2013 NHL Draft.

Talent Analysis

Brodeur plays an aggressive butterfly style that focuses on strong positioning to the shooter. Whenever the shooter comes in close, he’ll come out to pokecheck or cut down the angle. Similar to his father, his glove hand and stickhandling are two of his strengths. He steers shots into the boards with strong kicks leaving few second chances.


Brodeur attended Devils development camp along with his twin brothers Jeremy, also a goalie currently playing for Oshawa, and William, who is a forward at Shattuck-St. Mary's School. He then attended New Jersey's training camp before returning to Gatineau to start the season. Waived by the Olympiques in November, he was claimed by Drummondville. A feel good story when he was selected by the Devils in the 7th round in the 2013 NHL Draft and his father was at the podium as New Jersey hosted the event, Brodeur has shown flashes of potential but has yet to establish himself as a starter at the QMJHL level. New Jersey has until June 2015 to sign him or he would re-enter the 2015 NHL Draft.

Since the 2004 lockout, the New Jersey Devils system has not produced the same quality of prospects they were known for during their glory days. This is a result of different issues, like lack of picks, location on the draft board, or losing the magic touch to find late-round gems. But over the past seven years, management has slowly restocked the prospect pool where depth and quality are now returning NHL ready players.

"Don't call it a comeback, I've been here for years…"

Although the QMJHL is a long way from its 1990's heyday, when it regularly knocked out similar junior leagues when it came to the development of NHL goaltending prospects, the league currently boasts nine netminders who have been drafted or signed by NHL clubs. This number was bolstered by a bumper crop of five current QMJHL goalies drafted in the 2013 NHL Draft.

The New Jersey Devils have eight prospects competing at the junior level this year; three in the WHL, three in the OHL, one in the QMJHL, and one at the high school level. Some of their forwards are big, skilled scorers but have to overcome personal deficiencies. The others are more defensive oriented but have displayed surprising offensive numbers of late.
