St. Louis Blues President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced Wednesday the club has named Martin Brodeur as the team’s Assistant General Manager.
The Blues and Brodeur have agreed on a three-year contract.
Brodeur, 43, originally joined the Blues as a free agent on Dec. 2, 2014. After a seven-game stint with the club in which he posted a 3-3-0 record, Brodeur announced his retirement from the NHL on Jan. 29 and moved into the Blues’ front office as a Senior Advisor to the General Manager.
The Montreal, Quebec native retired from a 21-year playing career as the NHL’s all-time regular season leader in wins (691), shutouts (125), games played (1,266) and minutes played (74,438).
In postseason history, he ranks first in starts (204) and shutouts (24) and second in wins (113).
Brodeur appeared in 10 NHL All-Star Games and led the NHL in wins nine times, shutouts five times and games played six times, including appearing in 70 or more games in 10 consecutive seasons from 1997-98 to 2007-08.
He began his award-winning career with the 1994 Calder Trophy as Rookie of the Year, and went on to earn the Vezina Trophy four times (2003, 2004, 2007, 2008) and the Jennings Trophy five times (1997, 1998, 2003, 2004, 2010). He was also a three-time Stanley Cup Champion with the New Jersey Devils (1995, 2000, 2003) and a two-time Olympic Gold Medalist with Team Canada (2002, 2010).
