Alex Broadhurst (born March 7, 1993 in Orland Park, Illinois) is an American professional ice hockey player, currently playing for the Columbus Blue Jackets of the National Hockey League (NHL).

He is the younger brother of Terry Broadhurst, who was also on the Chicago Blackhawks' AHL-affliated team Rockford IceHogs with him.

Playing CareerEdit

Alex was drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks 199th overall in the 7th round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. He played two seasons at the Green Bay Gamblers in the USHL, and one at the London Knights in the OHL.

In 2012, he led the Gamblers in scoring and was named to the 2011-12 All-USHL First Team.

On April 24, 2012, Alex scored a short-handed hat-trick for the Green Bay Gamblers in its 6-3 win over the Youngstown Phantoms in Game 3 of the USHL Eastern Division semifinal series. It was the first shorthanded hat trick scored in the history of the United States Hockey League.

In 2011, he represented the United States at the World Junior A Challenge where the team took third place.

On June 14, 2013, the Blackhawks announced that they had agreed to terms with Alex for a three-year entry-level contract. In September of that same year, he was assigned to the Rockford IceHogs.

On June 30, 2015, Alex (along with Brandon Saad and Michael Paliotta) was traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Artem Anisimov, Marko Dano and Corey Tropp along with a fourth-round selection in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.
