NJ Devils retire Brodeur’s number, will erect a statue in his honor
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.
