Anthony Brodeur just a chip off the ol’ block
Goalie following in his famous father’s footsteps but earning his own merit playing for prestigious Shattuck-St. Mary’s
“You watch him play and he stands up,” Ward says of Anthony. “He’ll play old-school. He’s not your typical butterfly goalie — he is not. He looks a lot like his father. And that’s just from sitting around the kitchen table, eating breakfast, talking about playing goal, and watching his father.
“That’s who he watched playing goal growing up and he emulated him. The style is familiar. If there are people that know how Marty plays, they’ll have a smile on their face, watching him play. No one plays like Marty. And no one plays like Anthony.”
…

And sure, anything can happen heading into the 2013 NHL draft which is staged — guess where — at the Prudential Center in Newark. But the stars are aligning.
His dad’s home rink. His hometown. And maybe, just maybe….
“Exactly,” Brodeur said, smiling. “It’s cool. But it would be a privilege to get drafted by any team, to be honest with you. I don’t care who it is. But getting drafted by New Jersey in New Jersey would be pretty cool, especially with my dad playing for them.
“I’m really excited for the experience and excited to see what happens.”

    You know what would be cool? If he was his dad’s back-up goalie for the Devils. Of course it would be confusing.
