Mike Brodeur (born March 30, 1983) is a Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender, currently an Unrestricted Free Agent. He most recently played for the Orlando Solar Bears of the ECHL on a contract with the Houston Aeros of the AHL. Brodeur has played in the National Hockey League with the Ottawa Senators.

Playing career[edit]

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 contract 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.[1] 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.[2] He then went 3-0-0 in his NHL career with a 4-2 win against the Montreal Canadiens on January 16, 2010.

On March 15, 2012, Brodeur signed with the Las Vegas Wranglers of the ECHL.[3] March 23 was his first full game in more than a year following offseason hip surgery. He lost that game to the Idaho Steelheads, 3-2, in a shootout.[4]

Personal information[edit]

Brodeur is married.[5] He is a distant relative of New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur.[6]
