Marty Hangs Up His Skates for Good


Gulitti, Tom, The Record (Bergen County, NJ)


Martin Brodeur will not retire as a Devil, but it won't be long before he's back in New Jersey.

The former Devils goaltender will announce his retirement Thursday and join the St. Louis Blues' hockey operations department in a management role. That position will last through the remainder of the season. After that, Brodeur is expected to return to the Devils and become part of their front office.

Brodeur and Blues general manager Doug Armstrong both discussed this position with Devils president/general manager Lou Lamoriello before Brodeur made his decision to accept it.

"We've stayed in constant communication and I certainly understand his thought process," Lamoriello said of Brodeur. "They've asked him to stay with the team. He's had such an impact while he was there. He's going to be traveling, he's going to be with the team not in a player capacity, [but] as a liaison with the coaches and the players."

Brodeur had been working in a similar role with the Blues while playing for them the last month and a half, sitting in on power- play meetings and coaching meetings to offer his knowledge from playing 20-plus seasons in the NHL.

Brodeur has had an open offer to become part of the Devils' front office since he and the team mutually agreed to part ways after last season to clear the way for Cory Schneider to become the team's unquestioned No. 1 goaltender. The plan is for Brodeur to take Lamoriello up on that offer after this season.

"I'd be shocked if he's not here next year," Lamoriello said.

Brodeur, 42, will retire as the NHL's all-time leader with 691 wins and 125 shutouts. The future Hall of Famer won the Stanley Cup three times and the Vezina Trophy as the league's best goaltender four times during his 20 seasons with the Devils.

His stick-handling skill made him like a third defenseman for the Devils and led to the NHL implementing a trapezoid behind the net in 2005-06 to limit how much goaltenders play the puck.

"They changed the rules for the guy." Devils center Scott Gomez said. "Hockey actually changed a rule because of him, and that's something that's pretty impressive."

"One of the best goalies to ever play the game, no question about it," Devils left wing Patrik Elias said.

Although Brodeur finished his playing career with the Blues and will be working for them now, there's no question where his legacy is. …
