Martin Brodeur statue unveiled in New Jersey

Watch as former New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur drops the puck before the Devils faced the Washington Capitals.

The New Jersey Devils unveiled a statue of Martin Brodeur, honouring the famed netminder on Monday.

Brodeur played 1259 games with the Devils, leading them to three Stanley Cup wins, while winning the Vezina Trophy four times. He is the all-time NHL leader in saves, regular season wins and shutouts.

The team will also retire his No. 30 in a ceremony ahead of their Tuesday night game against the Edmonton Oilers.

After making the team for good in 1993, the Montreal native played 21 seasons in New Jersey, before playing seven games with the St. Louis Blues in the 2014-15 season.

He is now the Blues’ assistant general manager.
