Brett Brochu of Tilbury was one of five goalies invited to participate in Hockey Canada’s tryouts for Canada’s World Junior Championships team.

Brochu starred last season for the OHL’s London Knights, setting an OHL record for wins by a rookie goaltender, despite the shortened season. He also led the OHL in goals against average with a 2.40 GAA, and was second in save percentage at 0.919.

His spectacular season between the pipes for the Knights culminated in being named to the OHL’s First All-Rookie Team.

Hockey Canada obviously sees great potential in Brochu, who was ranked a lowly 29th among North American goaltenders for this year’s NHL Draft, despite winning OHL Goaltender of the Month honours back-to-back in January and February.

Brochu is an alumni of the Chatham-Kent Cyclones and Dresden Kings.

The other goalies invited were Sebastian Cossa, who also has family in Chatham-Kent, but lives in Fort McMurray, Alberta and plays for Edmonton (WHL), as well as Dylan Garand (Kamloops, WHL), Taylor Gauthier (Prince George, WHL), and Tristan Lennox (Saginaw, OHL)
