NEW YORK (AP) — Martin Brodeur has been back with the New Jersey Devils for eight months and only walked by his statue once. It's harder to avoid his banner hanging from the arena...
Brodeur, O’Ree, Bettman lead inductees into Hockey HOF
TORONTO (AP) — Martin Brodeur, Willie O'Ree and NHL commissioner Gary Bettman led the latest group of inductees to the Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday night.
Brodeur, the all-time leader in goalie wins and shutouts, was joined in the player's category by Martin St. Louis, Canadian women's star Jayna Hefford and Russian great Alexander Yakushev. Bettman and O'Ree — the NHL's first black player — went into the Hall as builders.
Martin Brodeur returns to Devils in business role
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Martin Brodeur is back with the New Jersey Devils organization many hoped he'd never leave.
Brodeur rejoined the Devils on Wednesday as executive vice president of business development, a shift from the hockey management job he held for three years as assistant general manager of the St. Louis Blues. He returns to the franchise he led to the Stanley Cup three times and became the NHL's all-time-leading goaltender in victories.
Brodeur leaves post as Blues assistant general manager
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Martin Brodeur is leaving the St. Louis Blues after spending the past three years as assistant general manager.
The team says Brodeur is departing to pursue other opportunities. Brodeur ended his goaltending career with the Blues, joined the front office as assistant to the GM in January 2015 and was promoted a few months later.
The addition of NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman to the Hockey Hall of Fame has prompted sharp pushback from some former players angry about the league's handling of head injuries.
Willie O'Ree didn't know he had broken the NHL's color barrier when he made his debut in 1958. Martin Brodeur couldn't see the three Stanley Cup titles and jaw-dropping career ahead when he played his first game in goal for the New Jersey Devils in 1992 and, a year later, Gary Bettman didn't know he would end up growing the league by leaps and bounds over the next 25 years as its commissioner.
