Martin Brodeur was back in New Jersey for the announcement by his old team, the New Jersey Devils, that his #30 would be retired on February 9, 2016.
“….The changes were jarring. No former teammates on the coaching staff. No old friends in the front office……And, maybe most of all, no Lamoriello to greet him when he walked into the building”, wrote Politi..”It was weird that (his office) was empty!” Brodeur said.
The Devils will honor Brodeur by retiring his number this season, the team will also erect a statue of him on the arena grounds as part of a four-day celebration culminating with his jersey number retirement.
