For the second straight year, Gens netminder Jeremy Brodeur is taking a trip south of the border as an invitee to an NHL team’s development camp.
Oshawa’s goaltender spent a week in Ohio, attending the Columbus Blue Jackets’ prospect camp.
The three-day session featured a mix of Columbus’ draft picks and free agent invitees. One of those invited to the camp was a former teammate of Brodeur’s, Jacob Graves, who was traded to the Memorial Cup winning London Knights this past season. In fact, Graves must have impressed the Blue Jackets brass, as he was offered a three-year entry level contract by the team.
Last year, Brodeur, along with fellow Gen Ken Appleby, attended the St. Louis Blues’ prospect camp in Missouri. Martin Brodeur, the legendary NHL goalie and father of Jeremy, is the assistant general manager for the Blues.
Jeremy was not the lone Brodeur attending an NHL team’s prospect camp. His brother, Anthony, who plays as a goalie for the Penticton Vees of the BCHL, was invited to attend the Toronto Maple Leafs’ prospect camp.
