Julien Brouilette(29) Hershey Bears

Undrafted 5th year defenseman Julien Brouliette(29) started his pro career in the ECHL but has played the last two seasons exclusively with AHL teams.

He had career highs for games played, goals, assists, points and penalty minutes (74-7-14-21-24) last season in the league with Hershey Bears, who he was signed with for the season.

The small-ish 5’11” 185 lbs. blue liner re-upped with the club for 2012/2013 but was a healthy scratch for the first contest and reassigned to their new ECHL affiliate Reading Royals midweek for a game to get in some playing time. He was inserted into the lineup for their second road contest and scored his first of the new campaign. But sat the home opener the next night.

The soon-to-be 26-year old will likely always be the type of player that needs to earn his spot.
