He shot pictures of the Montreal Canadiens for several decades, first as a newspaper man and then as the team’s official photographer. Brodeur was one of two photographers to capture the iconic image of Paul Henderson celebrating the winning goal of the 1972 Canada-Soviet summit series.

In 2006, he sold his archive of 110,000 photos to the NHL for $350,000.

Denis Brodeur’s career extended beyond hockey. He was also the official photographer for the Montreal Expos and shot numerous local sporting events and pro wrestling.

Like his son, Denis Brodeur was a goalie who won an Olympic medal. He backstopped the Canadian team that took the bronze at the 1956 Cortina d’Ampezzo Games.
