Broadhurst was drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks, 199th overall in the 7th round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. He played two seasons with the Green Bay Gamblers in the United States Hockey League (USHL), and one with the London Knights in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL). In 2012, he led the Gamblers in scoring and was named to the 2011–12 All-USHL First Team. On April 24, 2012, Broadhurst scored a short-handed hat-trick for the 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 USHL.
On June 30, 2015, Broadhurst was included in the trade of Brandon Saad by the Blackhawks to the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Jeremy Morin, Marko Dano, Artem Anisimov, Corey Tropp and a fourth-round draft pick in 2016.
During his third season within the Blue Jackets organization in 2017–18, Broadhurst was recalled by Columbus on April 3, 2018, and made his NHL debut for the Blue Jackets against the Detroit Red Wings. He was scoreless in two games with the Blue Jackets before he was returned to the Monsters.
In the 2018–19 season, while providing a veteran presence with the Cleveland Monsters, on February 25, 2019, Broadhurst was traded by the Blue Jackets to the Winnipeg Jets for future considerations. It was immediately announced that Broadhurst would continue in the AHL with the Monsters on loan from the Jets.
