2021 Fantasy Outlook
Brodin posted nine goals in 53 games in 2020-21, a new career high. It's an impressive number on the surface, but one that appears entirely unsustainable moving forward. Brodin's breakout was driven by a career-best 11.4 shooting percentage and just one of his tallies came with the man advantage. This is a player who has posted four or fewer goals in six of his first nine NHL campaigns. One thing you do get with Brodin is consistency. You can mark him down for 20 points, 100 shots on goal and 100-plus blocks each and every year, but that's about it. There's simply not enough ceiling here to make Brodin a desirable fantasy option in most formats. Read Past Outlooks

Brodin scored an empty-net goal on two shots, went plus-3 and blocked two shots in Friday's 5-1 win over the Blues in Game 3.
ANALYSIS
Brodin tallied at 12:31 of the third period after Ville Husso was pulled for an extra attacker early. The 28-year-old Brodin has a goal and two assists with eight shots on net, three blocked shots and a plus-4 rating in three postseason contests. The Swede will continue to play an important two-way role in the Wild's top four.

Brodin set a career high with 28 points in 69 games for the Wild last year. He also contributed 112 blocked shots and a plus-15 rating, once again proving himself as one of Minnesota's best all-around players. The Swede was rewarded with a seven-year contract in September - he'll be a fixture on the Wild's blue line for years to come. Brodin offers more value to his real NHL squad than in the fantasy game, but his usual 20-to-25 points won't hurt as a depth option for most virtual managers. However, don't expect Brodin to add much in terms of hits, shots on goal or power-play production.
The 10th-overall pick in the 2011 draft suited up in all 82 games last season, averaging over 20 minutes of ice time for the sixth time in his career. Brodin isn't going to put up eye-popping numbers offensively -- he potted just 18 points last year -- but he was able to block 135 shots in 2018-19. Brodin wasn't a power-play specialist to begin with, but the return of Dumba likely means he won't see many premium point-producing opportunities next season.
The 10th overall pick in the 2011 draft, Brodin mostly avoided injuries in 2017-18 as he played in 73 games -- his highest total in four years -- and settled in as a steady second-pairing option behind the dynamic duo of Mathew Dumba and Ryan Suter. Brodin doesn't have either of those players' elite skill sets, nor the offensive gifts of Jared Spurgeon, but he's chipped in more than 20 points in two straight seasons and set a new career high with a plus-23 rating last year. Even if injuries were to push him higher on the depth chart, the 25-year-old likely wouldn't be able to take advantage, but his consistent and relatively mistake-free game still serves a useful role on the Wild blue line.
Brodin is coming off a new career high in points (25) in 2016-17, but he again failed to play a full season thanks to a 14-game IR stint thanks to a finger injury. The 24-year-old Swede has now missed at least 11 games in three consecutive seasons, and his ice time has been trending in the wrong direction -- he averaged a career-low 19:34 last year. Brodin is a good skater and passer, but he’s not very aggressive on either side of the puck, and the Wild have better blueliners to lavish with power-play minutes. His fantasy value remains restricted to deep formats.
While he logs heavy minutes, Brodin only managed seven points in 68 regular-season games this past year and has turned into a dynamic defensive defenseman. Brodin may join the rush on occasion, but he's seen now as a shut-down guy who rarely shoots the puck.
After setting career highs in goals and points the season prior, Brodin took a step backward in 2014-15. In 71 games, he scored three goals and added 14 assists while posting a plus-21 rating. As a top-pairing defenseman, the Wild rarely need to worry about replacing Brodin on the penalty kill, as he racked up just eight PIM last season. That allowed him to finish with a personal best of more than 24 minutes of average ice time skating alongside the ultimate workhorse in defensive partner Ryan Suter. Plagued by an incredibly poor shooting percentage (3.2 percent), Brodin will look to bounce back closer to the 10.8 percent rate he shot at in 2013-14. Just 22 years old, Brodin has plenty of room to grow and is already one of the top shutdown defenders in the Western Conference, though his limited offensive range to date holds down his fantasy upside.
Brodin opened last season by creating offense and it looked like he was poised to take a giant step forward from his rookie year. Instead, he kind of went sideways when he was forced into more difficult situations -- after all, he wasn't always under the protective wing of Ryan Suter like he was his first season. Brodin will again shoulder increased responsibility and should slowly improve his scoring totals this season. But don't expect more than 30-35 points.
Brodin finished fourth in the Calder Trophy voting, made the All-Rookie team and took a spot next to Ryan Suter as the team's top defensemen, which he may not relinquish for years. The 10th overall draft pick in 2011 began the season in the AHL where he broke his collar bone and missed nearly three months. A few weeks into the NHL season and then healthy, Brodin was called up and never looked back, averaging more than 23 minutes per game of ice time. He put up solid defensive stats (18 takeaways and 60 blocked shots), but had just 11 points. He was the youngest defenseman in the league last season, so his offensive game will likely improve, and he has the talent to take a big leap. He could easily be the next Ryan Suter.
Brodin is Minny's top prospect on the blue line and rightfully so. He suited up against men in the Elitserien -- and held his own -- before his 18th birthday. He's great one-on-one, is exceptional on his skates and plays a calm, cool and collected control game. Yes, just like the great Niklas Lidstrom. Now, we're not saying he's the next Nik -- we may never see another player like him. But Brodin has tremendous talent and at worst, he'll be a top shutdown specialist in the NHL. However, we're convinced there's a lot more just under the surface and he'll some day dominate at both ends of the ice. Not unlike Ryan Suter. Yep -- we said that out loud. He should be in the land of frozen lakes in 2013-14.
Minnesota gave consideration to its future blue line by selecting Brodin with the 10th overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. Listed at 6-foot and 172 pounds, this Swedish prospect won't be throwing anyone around the ice but he is a fluid skater with hockey smarts. The Wild secured Brodin's services this past July by getting his signature on a three-year, entry-level contract, though the 18-year-old will look to get more playing time with Farjestads of the Swedish Elite League this season.
