Coach Bob Hartley thinks that defenseman T.J. Brodie can be a dominating defenseman in the NHL.

"He can be a dominant NHL defenseman — that's for sure," Hartley said. "T.J. doesn't know how good he is. That's gonna grow with maturity, with experience ...he's still a very young player. You look at that third period (Friday) — even on the bench, the players were commenting and saying, 'Wow'. He was dominant in his skating and puck moving, and he finally shot some pucks. He'll be a force for us." The 23-year-old blueliner has only three goals and 17 points in 52 games this season with a minus-12 rating, but take him next season if you believe the words of Bob Hartley.

T.J. Brodie took a costly hooking penalty with less than a minute left in the third period of Thursday's tie game against Detroit.

Calgary managed to stay alive long enough to send the game to overtime, but Detroit converted on the power play during the overtime period. "Not a good feeling," said Brodie. "Something that's definitely preventable. But at the same time, we got a point. Definitely could be worse." For his part, Flames coach Bob Hartley wasn't particularly hard on Brodie after the game and instead questioned whether or not Brodie was really guilty of hooking. Brodie also registered an assist on Thursday.

T.J. Brodie had a goal and an assist in Calgary's 4-1 win Wednesday.

Calgary Flames coach Bob Hartley wants T.J. Brodie to expect more from himself.

Hartley feels that Brodie can develop into one of the league's best defensemen. "I've coached many players that, with maturity, they grow into a role and suddenly their career takes off," Hartley said. "With TJ, with our situation over here with a bunch of young players, I think that the quicker that he'll realize this, the quicker he's going to be a star player in this league. This guy can be a player who can make a difference." Brodie is known more for his defensive abilities and is consequently likely to have far more value to his team than fantasy owners. That being said, he is worth keeping an eye on as the potential is there for him to eventually start putting up solid numbers offensively.

T.J. Brodie was praised by head coach Bob Hartley for his outstanding game on Saturday.

Hartley thought it was his best game yet this season. "Not only for this season," Hartley said Sunday, "like the last 48 games (of the lockout-shortened 2012-2013 campaign) also. Defensively he made some unbelievable decisions. He had jump in his play. He was creative with the puck. He put pucks at the net. T.J., what he has to learn is that he's gonna get better. He doesn't know how good he is." Brodie is worth looking at in deep leagues as he has a goal and three points but could be ready to break out.

T.J. Brodie has netted his first goal of the season.

Brodie scored the game-winner in Calgary's 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings. That gives the defenseman three points in eight contests this season.

Calgary Flames GM Jay Feaster said T.J. Brodie's two-year contract will give him the chance to prove his value.

"It says to TJ: 'We're very happy about the direction you're going," Feaster said of what the "bridge" contract means. "You're an important part of this team. We need even more from you. We think you have more to give. We think you're going to become an even better player. But, before we pay you in that fashion, you have to step up and actually perform." Brodie had two goals and 14 points in 47 games this season and the 23-year old could be a solid sleeper pick this season.

The Calgary Flames have signed defenseman T.J. Brodie to a two-year/$4.25 million contract.

Brodie was a solid defenseman for the Flames in 2013 as he had 14 points including two goals in 47 games while averaging over 20 minutes per game. The 23-year-old defenseman will get $1.75 million in his first year with $2.5 million in the final year of his contract. Brodie will be a nice sleeper pick late in deep pools next season.

T.J. Brodie was thrilled to be invited to join Team Canada for the upcoming World Championships by GM Steve Yzerman.

Brodie grew up a Red Wings fan and a Steve Yzerman fan to boot so the phone call meant a lot to the 21-year-old defenseman. "It's sort of weird watching him growing up and being so close to Detroit and stuff," Brodie said. "To talk to him on the phone is sort of a weird feeling, I guess. Watching your idol and getting to talk to him it's a cool experience." A fourth round pick in the 2008 Draft, Brodie had two goals and 14 points in 47 games while averaging over 20 minutes of action per game. He is worth a selection late in deep pools next season.

Coach Bob Hartley has been really impressed with the play of rookie defenseman T.J. Brodie.

Brodie had two assists on Saturday and was the first star of the game against the Flames hated rivals, the Edmonton Oilers. "He's just amazing," Hartley said. "He has so many skills. Like his skating is just sick." Brodie has only one goal and 11 points in 40 games this season but he has a spot on the top power play and has three assists in his last two games. He looks like a sleeper in next season's pools unless you live in Calgary or are a big Flames fan.

T.J. Brodie is enjoying the increased ice time with the Calgary Flames.

Brodie is averaging a career-high 19:24 minutes per contest, but he's also logged at least 22 minutes in each of his last five games. "It’s nice," Brodie said. "The more you play, if you make a bad pass or something, it’s a lot easier to forget about it if you go out the next shift. You don’t have to sit on the bench and think about it, and then the next time you’re out there, you’re a little bit nervous, because you don’t want to do it again. I think playing a little bit more, it’s definitely a little easier." His role increased after the Flames traded Jay Bouwmeester. The Flames don't have much left to play for this season, but Brodie is a key part of their future so they might as well give him as much playing time as possible.

T.J. Brodie is continuing to see big minutes on the blueline for the Calgary Flames.

Brodie was on the ice for 24:14 Monday, third on the team behind Dennis Wideman and Mark Giordano. Brodie has a goal and eight points for the Flames with a minus-11 rating but the second year Flame has impressed the upper management with his steady play. We cannot recommend him in traditional pools but he is a better hockey player than fantasy player in the NHL.

T.J. Brodie has a goal and six points in nine AHL games.

Brodie has been getting a ton of playing time and he has a lot of potential. For now though, Abbotsford Heat coach Troy Ward is hoping Brodie can play a bit more of a simple game and learn when to play it safe. "That has to come from me and come from coaching," Ward says. "You have to guide these guys into when’s the right time and when’s the wrong time. The only way you can go through that is through good and bad experiences — both individually and as a team." He might serve as a bottom-two defenseman for the Calgary Flames if the lockout ends in time to save the 2012-13 campaign.
