Brochu Makes Pro Debut, Becomes Youngest Player In Team History
Tilbury’s Brett Brochu made his professional hockey debut this weekend with the AHL’s Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.
Brochu stopped 31 shots in a 5-2 loss to the Hershey Bears.
Still eligible for the NHL Draft this season, Brochu became the youngest player in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins history at 18-years, 249 days old.
Brochu, who was the OHL leader in goals against average, and second in save percentage last season as an OHL rookie with the London Knights, is an alumni of the Chatham-Kent Cyclones and Dresden Kings.
This was the final game of the Penguins’ season. Brochu had been signed and practicing with the team all season with the OHL year cancelled.
