2007-08: Brodie Reid skated in 60 games for the Burnaby Express in his second season in the BCHL. He was the league's second-leading goal scorer with 52 goals and his 87 points were second only to the Express' Carlo Finucci on the team (Finucci led all BCHL scorers with 102 points). In five playoff games, Reid scored 3 goals with 4 assists and 9 PMs. He was ranked 85th amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting's final rankings but not selected in the 2008 NHL Draft.
2008-09: Reid began his third BCHL season with the Express before being traded to the Penticton Vees in November. In 40 games between the two teams he scored 17 goals with 22 assists and had 25 PMs, twice missing time during the season due to injury. In 10 playoff games with the Vees he scored 1 goal with 5 assists and had 2 PMs. Reid committed to playing college hockey at Northeastern.
2009-10: Reid deferred his commitment to Northeastern until 2010-11 and returned to junior hockey. After being traded from Penticton to Nanaimo in the BCHL and then Brooks in the Alberta League, he eventually wound up with the USHL's Lincoln Stars. Despite missing time due to injuries for the third straight season, Reid was the leading scorer for the Stars with 16 goals and 20 assists; playing in 46 of 60 games. He had 46 PMs and was -8. The Stars finished with the league's worst record, winning just 16 games.
2010-11: Reid skated in 37 of 38 games for Northeastern as a freshman and was the Huskies fourth-leading scorer. He scored 11 goals with 17 assists and was an even plus/minus with 18 PMs. The Huskies finished sixth in Hockey East and lost to defending national champion Boston College in the Hockey East semifinals, finishing 14-16-8 for the year. Reid signed an entry-level contract with San Jose in April 2011- foregoing his final three years of college hockey.
2011-12: Reid had a good rookie season in the AHL with Worcester where the offensively skilled forward saw time on the team's power play. He scored ten goals (three on the power play) along with 15 assists and an okay minus two rating in 66 games.
2012-13: Reid got off to a promising start in his second season with San Jose's AHL affiliate in Worcester before being slowed by a recurring shoulder injury over the final three months of the season. He scored 10 goals with 11 assists and was -1 with 19 penalty minutes in 34 games; playing just six games after January. Worcester missed the AHL playoffs after finishing fourth in the Atlantic Division.
Reid is a hard working grinder with natural scoring ability. He brings with him a solid work ethic and a very high hockey I.Q. that coaches just love. He plays the game with abandon, and seems to love playing in the nasty areas of the ice. His board and corner play are good, but could be better and will need to be more refined in the future if he would like to carve out a role at the NHL level.
His scoring prowess is a direct product of his hard shot and quick release. Most players who play the way Reid does do not have this ability thus making the 6'1 wing an intriguing prospect. Considering he is further along than most of the Sharks prospects he could find himself in a bottom-six role with San Jose within the next few seasons barring injury.
The 2011 free agent signing will attend the Worcester camp healthy and poised to build upon his successful campaign last season before he went down to injury. It is possible he could play a few games in the NHL this season as a short term injury call-up.
