The New Jersey Devils have hired Martin Brodeur as their new executive vice president of hockey operations, the team announced on Thursday.
Since retiring from his professional playing career, Brodeur has been focused on hockey operations, working in business development with the Devils since 2018. Two years later, Devils general manager Tom Fitzgerland appointed Brodeur as an advisor to the hockey operations department.
“Marty has been a tremendous resource to me with his experience, input, foresight, and relationships throughout the hockey world,” Fitzgerald said of the legendary goaltender. “It makes sense to formalize and give clarity to his roles and responsibilities within the organization. I am excited that he has committed to staying with us, as we all work to continue to return New Jersey to the levels of success that Marty reached here as a player.”
Brodeur played as the Devils’ goaltender for 21 of his 22 seasons in the NHL, leading them to three Stanley Cup championships. He also holds the team record for most regular-season wins (691) and shutouts (125).
