Prospect Profile: Brennan Serville

Friday, 29.06.2012 / 10:00 AM / Feature
By Eric Postma

Brennan Serville with the University of Michigan Wolverines

The draft pick used to select Brennan Serville in the third round of the 2011 NHL Draft was part of the first trade pulled off by the newly minted Winnipeg Jets franchise. The Jets scouting staff and management thought highly enough of the young Serville to trade two fourth-round picks in order to jump up in the third round to grab the Pickering-born defenceman with the 78th overall selection.

Brennan Serville was selected in the 2009 OHL Priority Draft by the Sudbury Wolves, but suffered a broken collarbone in spring camp of that year, hampering his ability to make the team. Serville moved on to play for the Stouffville Spirit of the OJHL for two seasons, notching 45 points (6 goals, 39 assists) in 79 games played.

For the 2011-12 season, Serville moved on to play for the University of Michigan Wolverines. He tallied eight assists and four penalty minutes manning the blueline in 29 regular season games with the Wolverines this season. He will compete in the CCHA playoffs with Michigan finishing second place in the conference, securing a spot in the quarterfinals.

Born in Pickering, Ontario, Serville is a big two-way defenceman that can make a huge impact on a game. Listed at 6-foot-3, Brennan will continue to fill out his frame and continue to add weight to his game.

He’s been hampered by injuries so far in his junior career, but when healthy, Brenan is an impressive and effective player. Serville projects to be a solid two-way defenceman capable of holding his own in the defensive zone, but also contributing in the transition to offence. The Jets have solid depth at the defensive position, so it is likely Serville will use up his entire College eligibility before making the jump to the professional ranks.
