Julien Brouillette (born December 5, 1986) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenseman who is currently playing for the St. John's IceCaps in the American Hockey League whilst under contract to the Winnipeg Jets of the National Hockey League.
In 2008 he signed with the Charlotte Checkers of the ECHL. He played there for two seasons and the team went to the playoffs both years.
In the 2010–11 season Brouillette signed with the Greenville Road Warriors of the ECHL. On December 14, he was loaned to the Lake Erie Monsters of the AHL and signed a Professional Tryout with the team. On January 23, 2011, he was signed to a Standard Players Contract with the Monsters ending his contract with the Road Warriors. He remained with the Monsters for the duration of the season, posting career highs of 2 goals and 19 points in 49 games. Following the Monsters first round elimination, Brouillette was returned to the Road Warriors on loan to play in their final post season game.
On July 11, 2011, Brouillette was signed to a one-year contract with the Hershey Bears of the AHL for the 2011–12 season. In playing a career high 74 games, Brouillette was a fixture on the Bears defense, to post 7 goals and 21 points. In the 2012–13 season, his second within the Bears organization, Brouillette was re-assigned to ECHL affiliate, the Reading Royals, to begin the year as a flow on effect of the NHL lockout. After 1 game with the Royals, Brouillette was recalled to Hershey and reclaimed his position to contribute with 7 points in 61 contests.
On April 5, 2013, Brouillette signed his first NHL contract, a one-year deal with NHL affiliate, the Washington Capitals, for the following 2013–14 season. Midway through the season whilst with the Bears, Brouillette received his first ever NHL recall by the Capitals on February 6, 2014. He made his long awaited NHL debut the following night, providing a primary assist in a 4-2 victory over the Winnipeg Jets in Washington. In his second game, Brouillette scored his first NHL goal, which stood as the game-winner in a 3-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils on February 8, 2014.
On August 8, 2014, Brouillette signed as a free agent to a one-year, two-way contract with the Winnipeg Jets.
