History

2009-10: Terry Broadhurst skated in 42 games for the University of Nebraska-Omaha as a freshman and was named to the CCHA's All-Rookie Team. He scored 13 goals with 11 assists and was minus-two with 10 penalty minutes. Broadhurst scored 7 of his 11 goals on the Mavericks power play. Nebraska-Omaha finished sixth in the CCHA in their final season in the league and won 20 games for the first time since 2005-06.

2010-11: Broadhurst was the fifth-leading scorer for Nebraska-Omaha as a sophomore despite missing nine games due to injury. He scored 11 goals with 19 assists and was plus-10 with 14 penalty minutes in 30 games. Nebraska-Omaha finished third in the WCHA in the first season in their new league. The Mavericks season ended on a down note as they were swept by Bemidji State in the first round of the WCHA tournament and lost to Michigan, 3-2, in overtime in the NCAA West Regional semifinals.

2011-12: Broadhurst made his pro hockey debut – skating in eight games with the Blackhawks AHL affiliate Rockford after signing a two-year entry-level contract with Chicago in March 2012 following his junior season at Nebraska-Omaha. In eight games with the IceHogs he was plus-two with 2 assists. Broadhurst was the second-leading scorer for the Mavericks in his final season of college hockey. He scored 16 goals with 20 assists in 38 games and was plus-two with 6 penalty minutes. Nebraska-Omaha was in the thick of the WCHA race for much of the season but dropped seven of its final eight games – including overtime losses to nationally-ranked Minnesota and Denver.

2012-13: Broadhurst split his first pro season between Chicago's AHL and ECHL affiliates, Rockford and Toledo respectively. Broadhurst played 31 games for the IceHogs and scored 5 goals with 8 assists and was +3 with 12 penalty minutes. In 36 games for the ECHL's Walleye he scored 12 goals with 19 assists and was +13 with 14 penalty minutes. Rockford missed the AHL playoffs and Broadhurst was with the IceHogs in April; missing Toledo's six-game playoff series with Cincinnati.

 

Talent Analysis

Broadhurst is a well-rounded forward that can skate with skilled players or play a responsible game in a checking role. He may not have any one skill that will help him stand out among the other Blackhawk prospects, but he has the potential to develop into a versatile pro forward that can help a team in a variety of ways.

 

Future

Broadhurst finished his rookie pro season with Rockford, including some time with the top-six. He will look to stick in the AHL in his second season and will have that chance with little set in the Rockford forward line-up.

Following a hot start to the season for the Rockford IceHogs, the AHL affiliate for the Chicago Blackhawks, the squad has settled into a familiar spot in the standings. The 'Hogs hold the eighth spot in the West with an 18-18-4-2 record but have played three to four more games than many other teams.

The Chicago Blackhawks’ organizational depth has begun to break through to the NHL level in 2013-14. Led by Brandon Pirri, a handful of prospects have seen playing time in Chicago so far this season, while the depth on the wing and the blue line allowed General Manager Stan Bowman to swing a trade for former-Blackhawk Kris Versteeg.

Expected by many to be among the top teams in the AHL this season, the Rockford IceHogs have put together another up-and-down start to a season. Even with several players on the roster who are expected to be full-time NHL players when the season begins, the team has managed a 17-16-1-1 record so far in 2012-13. There have been good stretches – four separate stretches have seen the 'Hogs rattle off at least three consecutive wins – but they are always accompanied by times when the team has struggled to come away with any points in the standings.

A significant number of early-round draft picks in recent years have put the Chicago Blackhawks system among the deepest organizations in the league. Although there may not be much in the way of blue-chip talent, the system has multiple NHL-caliber prospects at each position and plenty of players competing at the AHL level.
