Playing career

Amateur

Brodzinski attended Blaine High School where he was teammates with current Pittsburgh Penguins center Nick Bjugstad. After high school, Brodzinski played two seasons in the USHL with the Fargo Force.

Brodzinski attended St. Cloud State University where he skated three seasons with the Huskies. As a Freshman he led all NCAA Freshman with 22 goals[1] and as a Junior he was named to the 2014-15 NCHC All-Conference First Team. He finished his college career with 64 goals and 48 assists for 112 points in 120 games played.[2]

Professional

On April 1, 2015, the Los Angeles Kings signed Brodzinski to a two-year entry-level contract.[3] He was then assigned to the Kings AHL affiliate, the Ontario Reign.

On January 5, 2017, Brodzinski, and teammate Vincent LoVerde, were selected to compete in the 2017 AHL All-Star Game.[4]

Brodzinski was called up to the Kings on March 23, 2017,[5] and made his NHL debut on March 25, 2017, against the New York Rangers.[6] When he debuted, he became the first Los Angeles Kings player to wear the number 76 and the first player who was part of the Kings 2013 draft class to appear in a game for the team.[5]

Brodzinski was recalled to the NHL on November 16, 2017.[7] He scored his first NHL goal on November 18, 2017, in a 4-0 win against the Florida Panthers.[8] On January 7, 2018, he was reassigned to the AHL[9] only to be recalled on January 14, after playing 3 games in the AHL since he was last recalled.[10] He was demoted again on January 25, 2018,[11] only to be recalled temporarily on January 29, 2018, along with 3 other teammates.[12]

As a free agent from the Kings, Brodzinski signed a one-year, two-way contract with the San Jose Sharks on July 2, 2019.[13] He was placed on waivers by the Sharks on October 11, 2019.[14]

Personal life

Brodzinski's younger brother, Michael, was taken just seven selections before him in the same NHL draft by the San Jose Sharks. The two brothers competed against each other multiple times during college as Michael played for the University of Minnesota. Brodzinski also has two more younger brothers, Easton and Bryce. Easton currently plays hockey for St. Cloud State University,[15] while Bryce is committed to also play hockey for the University of Minnesota for the 2019-2020 season.[16] Bryce was also named 2019 Mr. Hockey for Minessota High School Hockey.[17]
