The 5’11”, 196-pound defenseman scored a power-play goal on Sunday against Norfolk and ranks first among Bears defensemen in goals this season. Brouillette has recorded 64 points (21 goals, 43 assists) and 263 penalty minutes in 238 career AHL games with Providence, Hartford, Charlotte, Lake Erie and Hershey.
