This past Tuesday, Martin Brodeur became the fourth member of the New Jersey Devils to have his number/jersey retired and lifted to the rafters. He follows those of former team mates Ken Daneyko, Scott Stevens, and Scott Niedermayer.
Now inside their 32nd year of existence, the New Jersey Devils were established in 1982-1983 after spending the organization's initial 8 campaigns as the Kansas City Scouts and Colorado Rockies.
Martin Brodeur participated in all but 11 of those seasons. During his 21-year NJD career, he led NHL goalies in wins 9 times, achieved 40 wins 8 times, and, of course, helped New Jersey win 5 conference titles and hoist three Stanley Cups.
Not bad for some Mickey Mouse outfit (as per Wayne Gretzky) - wouldn't you say?
