Alex Broadhurst (born March 7, 1993 in Orland Park, Illinois) is an American professional ice hockey player. He currently plays with the Cleveland Monsters of the American Hockey League as a prospect for the Columbus Blue Jackets organization in the National Hockey League (NHL).
Broadhurst was drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks, 199th overall in the 7th round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. He played two seasons at the Green Bay Gamblers in the USHL, and one at the London Knights in the OHL. In 2012, he led the Gamblers in scoring and was named to the 2011–12 All-USHL First Team. On April 24, 2012, Broadhurst scored a short-handed hat-trick for the Green Bay Gamblers in its 6–3 win over the Youngstown Phantoms in Game 3 of the USHL Eastern Division semifinal series. It was the first shorthanded hat trick scored in the history of the United States Hockey League.
On June 14, 2013, the Blackhawks announced that they had agreed to terms with Broadhurst for a three-year entry-level contract. In September 2013, he was assigned to the Blackhawk affiliated Rockford IceHogs.
On June 30, 2015, Broadhurst was included in the trade of Brandon Saad by the Blackhawks to the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Jeremy Morin, Marko Dano, Artem Anisimov, Corey Tropp and a fourth-round draft pick in 2016.
