Today, the Las Vegas Wranglers of the ECHL listed former Blackhawks prospect Mike Brodeur on their roster on the team’s official website.
Brodeur had a breakout AHL campaign with the Rochester Americans in 2008-09, when he posted an 18-13-4 record with a 2.45 goals against average and .921 save percentage, all career bests.
Brodeur signed a one-year contact with the NHL Ottawa Senators during the summer of 2009, but at training camp, Brodeur was returned to the AHL, assigned to the Binghamton Senators. Brodeur was recalled to Ottawa on November 24, 2009, after an injury to Senators’ starting goaltender Pascal Leclaire. He made his NHL debut on December 19, 2009, against the Minnesota Wild, stopping 22 shots and backstopping Ottawa to a 4-1 win. He was returned to Binghamton afterwards. On January 14, 2010, Brodeur was called up from Binghamton only hours before the opening faceoff for the Ottawa Senators. Brodeur made 32 stops for a 2-0 shutout of the New York Rangers in only his second ever NHL game. He then went 3-0-0 in his NHL career with a 4-2 win against the Montreal Canadiens on January 16, 2010. (more…)
