Brodeur’s son posts third longest shutout streak in QMJHL history


Recommended Posts

He beat his Dad’s person best from his junior days in the process:

One of the feel good stories of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft occurred when the New Jersey Devils acquired the 208th overall pick so that future Hall of Famer Martin Brodeur could personally draft his son, Anthony.

The 18-year-old Brodeur is a goaltender like his father and in his first season with the QMJHL Gatineau Olympiques. It will be a while before we’ll know if he’ll end up following in his Dad’s footsteps by playing between the pipes for the Devils, but he recently got some attention for his 194:28 minute shutout streak.

That’s the third longest run in the history of the QMJHL and roughly double Martin Brodeur’s best streak in the juniors, according to the Bergen Record.

“He called me right away to say, ‘Hey Dad, I beat you,’” the elder Brodeur said.

Anthony has a 2.72 GAA and .895 save percentage as a rookie. Those numbers might sound terrible if you compare them to the NHL, but for the sake of context, keep in mind that among QMJHL eligible goalies, the top GAA is 2.41 and only three netminders are below 2.75.

I wonder if in a few years we'll be seeing another Luongo/Schneider situation in New Jersey - only this time, Cory Schneider/Anthony Brodeur.

Either way, he's got the blood of a goalie, and one of the best mentors anybody on the planet could hope to have.

Imagine is Marty retires and Schneids signs a long term contract thinking he is the #1 starter then Anthony makes the team and steals the #1 spot from him then their GM ties to trade Schneider but noone wants his 12 year/60 something million dollar contract and after two seasons Devils gm decides to pull a 180 and trade Anthony but Schneider is unsure if he wants to return to the team that tried trading him and only kept him because noone would want his contract because they think he is a choker. Also this happens only 2 seasons after going to game 7 of the finals but loses because his team could not score more than 8 goals in 7 games

Awesome. Perfect, smooth shift from joke to bitterness.
