Father chooses son: Devils pick Anthony Brodeur

Jun 30, 2013, 10:11 PM EDT

The New Jersey Devils turned the 2013 draft into a family affair.

With the 208th pick overall in the seventh-round, Martin Brodeur announced the team’s selection and it was a player he knows very well: His son Anthony.

Anthony Brodeur is a goalie out of Shattuck St. Mary’s prep school in Minnesota. Getting picked by the Devils and with his old man there to announce the honor made for a special moment. Even better still? The Devils traded into the seventh-round to pick him.

The reaction around the Twittersphere was very positive.

The 5’11”, 177-pound netminder is headed to the QMJHL next season to play for Gatineau.
