Brodeur’s son could be drafted next year

At NHL.com, Mike Morreale writes that Martin Brodeur’s son, Anthony, is ranked as a mid-round pick for the 2013 NHL Draft.

Brodeur will begin the season as a “C List” player on NHL Central Scouting’s Futures List, an indicator he could be chosen in the fourth, fifth or sixth round of the 2013 draft. There’s also a good chance his ranking will improve as the 2012-13 campaign progresses.

Central Scouting’s Al Jensen told Morreale, “He’s more of a ‘C List’ watch to start this year. He has more of a hybrid style, has some of Marty’s instincts.”

Anthony’s coach at Shattuck said, “If you didn’t know who he was, you’d probably say he reminds you of a mini-Marty … a hybrid-style goalie who will make the kick save.”

According to Shattuck coach Tom Ward, Anthony was offered a chance to play in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League but said, ‘No thanks.’ He wants to be a college hockey player.

Morreale writes that Brodeur went 24-3-1 with a 2.31 goals-against average, .900 save percentage and four shutouts prep powerhouse Shattuck-St. Mary’s in Minnesota in 2011-2012.

Next year’s NHL Draft will be held at Prudential Center.
