2009-10: Brodie started his fourth season with the OHL Saginaw spirit when the offensive defenseman was traded to the Barrie Colts on November 9, 2009 as part of a four-player deal and an extra third round 2010 draft pick to the Colts. He had scored four goals along with 19 assists and had a plus 15 rating in 19 OHL games with the Spirit. The offensively talented defenseman was asked to play a bigger role defensively for the Barrie colts. He would score three goals with 30 assists and a plus rating of 18 while playing 46 OHL games for the Colts. The Barrie Colts were ranked first in the CHL heading into the OHL playoffs where they would lose in the Championship finals to the Windsor Spitfires. Brodie scored only one goal along with 14 assists but had an excellent plus 11 rating while playing both the power play and penalty kill for 17 OHL playoff games.
2010-11: Brodie was the lone Heat representative at the 2011 AHL All-Star Classic in Hershey, PA this season. He also started the season playing for the Flames where he failed to register any points and had a minus three rating in three NHL games before being assigned to Abbottsford. The rookie finished the AHL season second in points for a defenseman with 34 and led the Heat with 29 assists and a plus three rating in 68 games. He helped operate the power play and was partnered with Christopher Breen on the shutdown defensive pair against the oppositions' best forwards.
2011-12: Brodie was re-called by the Flames in early November and established himself as a presence on the Calgary blue line before suffering a season-ending upper body injury in March. He scored 2 goals with 12 assists and was plus-three with 14 penalty minutes in 54 games; averaging 16:28 minutes of ice time per game. In 12 games with Calgary's AHL affiliate prior to his call up, Brodie scored 1 goal with 2 assists and was plus-four with 10 penalty minutes.
Brodie is a good puck moving defenseman with excellent skating skills while making on the tape outlet passes to his forwards. He has a hard, accurate shot from the point along with plenty of offensive upside to his game and can control the backend of the power play. The talented defenseman needs only to add more muscle mass to his light frame to play more physically in the defensive zone at the NHL level. He should challenge for a roster spot on the Flames’ blue line corps again this year.
Brodie has an excellent opportunity to make the Flames' line-up if the NHL lockout ends. The mobile defender will start the season at the AHL level with the Abbottsford Heat where he will play on the top pairing and both specialty team units. He will most likely be the first defensemen called up to the Flames if there are injuries to any defensemen.
