Martin Brodeur and Devils owner Josh Harris (NJ Devils)

The New Jersey Devils will retire Martin Brodeur's number 30 and build a statue in his honor in front of the Devils' home ice at the Prudential Center in Newark.

After showing a video highlighting Brodeur's 20-year career with the Devils that included three Stanley Cup championships and the most wins of any NHL goalie with 691, Devils owner Josh Harris announced plans for a four-day tribute to Brodeur that starts Saturday, Feb. 6.

"Marty will always be a Devil," said Harris at a ceremony attended by the entire current Devils team. “Marty is one of the greatest players in the history of the game and it will be a proud moment for the franchise when his No. 30 jersey takes its rightful place in Prudential Center’s rafters."

There will be special events with Brodeur each day to be announced leading to the retirement ceremony on Tuesday, Feb. 9 prior to a game with the Edmonton Oilers.


The team also unveiled a special retirement jersey that will be available for sale and used during ceremonies. There are also special ticket packages available commemorating each year of the Devils' three championships that include tickets to the Feb. 9 game and the chance to meet Brodeur after the ceremony. “I am humbled and honored to have this opportunity with the organization that drafted me over 20 years ago, and thrilled to share this moment with fans who have become like family,” said Brodeur, who played his final season with the St. Louis Blues before retiring and joining the Blues' front office as assistant general manager.
