On the other hand, it looks to me brodin doesn't like to block shots (unless you mean deflecting shots with his stick in 1vs1 plays). Not sure how much you watched of him, but his great positioning is usually not aimed to block shots. He prefers to leave good vision to his goalie and concentrate on rebounds.
He seems a lot like Carl Gunnarsson. Smooth skating, can make solid outlet passing, good positional play.
