Martin Brodeur

Martin Brodeur might have left hockey, but hockey hasn’t left Martin Brodeur. At the ripe age of 51, the G.O.A.T. is still hanging around and getting things done.

Martin Brodeur’s hockey legacy is certainly greater on the ice than in an office. Brodeur spent 21 years with the New Jersey Devils, and in doing so became the NHL’s all-time leader in wins (691), shutouts (125), and games played (1266).

Brodeur’s performance started to decline in the preceding 2010-11 season but still managed a respectable campaign in the 2011-12 season. In the playoffs, Brodeur turned his play up a few notches for his last dance, but ultimately came up two wins short of his fourth championship. At the age of 39, Brodeur went 14-9 and posted a 0.917 save percentage to pair with one shutout. The shutout came in Game Four against the Florida Panthers to even the series at 2-2.

Martin Brodeur tried to prolong his playing career when he signed with the St. Louis Blues but didn’t hold up all too well. At the age of 42, Brodeur went 3-3-0 in seven appearances and had a save percentage of 0.899 – not far off of his numbers from the two years prior. Fittingly, Brodeur’s last win in the NHL was a shutout over the Colorado Avalanche.

Following his retirement in early 2015, Brodeur re-joined the Blues as assistant general management and maintained that role until 2018. After his three-year contract with the Blues, Brodeur returned home to New Jersey and has since worked with the organization in various front-office roles.

Martin Brodeur is a Senior Adviser and Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations for the New Jersey Devils.
