Martin Brodeur’s son Anthony will follow in his father’s steps and be a goaltender in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, albeit with the Gatineau Olympiques and not the long defunct Saint-Hyacinthe Laser like his old man.

The 18-year-old prodigy of the future Hall of Famer hails from Essex Falls, N.J. — clearly as a result of his father’s long career with the New Jersey Devils — but has spent his last three years at the prestigious hockey factory known as Shattuck-Saint Mary’s, a boarding school in Fairbault, Min.

The younger Brodeur was dominant while playing for Shattucks’ top team that plays with Minnesota’s best high school clubs, putting up a 2.48 goals-against-average and a .923 save percentage in 28 games played this past season.

Brodeur’s younger brothers, William and Jeremy, are both also hockey players at Shattuck-Saint Mary’s.
