History

2010-11: Anthony Brodeur played for the U16 team at the Shattuck-St.Mary’s school in Faribault, Minnesota. Splitting the goaltending duties with Danny Tirone, he was 25-2 and had 3 shutouts with a 2.18 goals against and .909 save percentage. The Saints finished 49-4-1 and reached the USA Hockey U16 National Championship game against Detroit Honeybaked, falling 3-2.

2011-12: Brodeur returned to Faribeault to skate for Shattuck-St. Mary’s prep school team as a junior. Splitting time with senior Kyle Hayton, he was 24-3-1 and had 4 shutouts with a 2.31 goals against and .900 save percentage. Brodeur was 2-1 with a 3.10 goals against and .878 save percentage in three games at the USA U18 Tier 1 Nationals. The Saints defeated the Los Angeles Junior Kings, 2-1, in the championship game.

2012-13: Brodeur returned to Shattuck-St. Mary’s for his senior season, sharing the goaltending duties with junior Luke Kania. In 28 games he was 21-5-2 with 5 shutouts and had a 2.48 goals against and .923 save percentage. The Saints returned to the U18 Nationals but were beaten by Massachusetts representative Neponset Valley in the semifinals. Brodeur played in two games and was 2-0 with a 2.19 goals against and .920 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.

2013-14: Brodeur played in 30 games for the Gatineau Olympiques as a backup to 20-year-old Robert Steeves in his first QMJHL season. He was 13-10-2 with two shutouts and had a 2.90 goals against and .887 save percentage. Gatineau finished fourth in the West Division and reached the second round in the playoffs. Brodeur did not appear in any playoff games. 

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.

Future

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.
