Observations

April 2019 – Brook signed an entry level contract last fall and after being criticized for his inconsistent play the year prior, Brook responded in spades. This campaign he led all WHL defenseman with 16 goals and 75 points earning him a stint with the Canadiens’ AHL affiliate, the Laval Rockets. Although he should be slated for full time with the Rockets, expect the young blueliner to at least compete for a spot with the big club come September, especially if Noah Juulsen is injured again.

January 2019 – As a member of Team Canada at the WJC, Brook was on the second pairing and was actually used in more of a defensive role, killing penalties. He still managed two assists in five games. It’s interesting that he was used in this way given his status as possibly the top offensive defenseman in the WHL, but it bodes well for his long-term NHL certainty. – Dobber
