The winningest goalie in NHL history and two-time Olympic Gold Medalist, Martin Brodeur will certainly anger a few Devils fans by snubbing their front office.
Former New Jersey Devils and current St. Louis Blues Goalie Martin Brodeur is calling it a career, and will retire on Thursday – joining the Blues front office.

Brodeur, who the Devils drafted in 1990, played with the team from 1991 until 2014 which included three Stanley Cup wins and five Eastern Conference titles. The 42-year-old goalie left the team in 2014 to pursue free agency for the first time in his career, joining the St. Louis Blues.
Despite only playing a few games with the Blues, SportsNet reported that Brodeur will join their front office – and not that of the New Jersey Devils.
Among the numerous NHL records and accolades among goalies Brodeur has, here are some of his greatest accomplishments:
1. All-time leader in NHL wins by a goalie (691), all-time leader in NHL shutouts (125), all-time leader in games played for a goalie (1,266) and saves (28,928)
2. Three Stanley Cup championships and five conference titles
3. Two Olympic Gold medals for Canada (2002, 2010), two World Hockey Championship Silver medals for Canada (1996, 2005)
4. The only Goalie in NHL history to score a game-winning goal
5. A 9-time NHL All-Star, 5-time recipient of the William M. Jennings Trophy for fewest goals allowed, and 4-time recipient of the Vezina Trophy for best goaltender.
