BRODEUR ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT, JOINS BLUES STAFF

Goaltender Martin Brodeur, who signed a one-year contract with the St. Louis Blues on Dec. 2, officially announced his retirement after 22 NHL seasons. He will remain with St. Louis as a senior adviser to the general manager.

Brodeur, 42, had a 3-3-0 record in seven appearances with the Blues this season, including a 16-save shutout in his final NHL victory on Dec. 29 against the Colorado Avalanche.

A first-round pick (No. 20) of the New Jersey Devils in the 1990 NHL Draft, Brodeur spent the first 21 seasons of his career with the Devils, winning the Calder Trophy as rookie of the year in 1994.

Brodeur finishes his career with a 691-397-176 record with a 2.24 goals-against average, .912 save percentage and 125 shutouts in 1,266 regular-season games. He is the NHL's all-time leader in wins, shutouts, games played and minutes played (74,438).

Canucks goalie Miller eager to face Sabres

Friday, 01.30.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER -- Vancouver Canucks goalie Ryan Miller will be extra cautious facing the Buffalo Sabres for the first time Friday.

Buffalo picked Miller in the fifth round (No. 138) in the 1999 NHL Draft, and he played his first 12 seasons in the Sabres organization before he was traded to the St. Louis Blues late last season. The 34-year-old goaltender expects to feel awkward playing against his former team.

"It's going to be a little bit strange," said Miller, who signed a three-year contract with Vancouver last summer. "I will pay special attention not to pass the puck towards the Buffalo symbol."

Super 16: Class of 2003 further solidifying its status

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

The 2015 NHL All-Star Weekend doubled as a class reunion.

Eleven members of the NHL Draft Class of 2003 were in Columbus, and a 12th was originally selected but could not participate because of injury. That's more than double any other draft class, and another example of the exemplary talent that extraordinary draft cycle produced.

"We actually talked about that on the bus," Minnesota Wild defenseman Ryan Suter said on All-Star media day. "Guys were asking what draft other guys were in and who was in that draft, and we've got a lot of good players from that draft. It is pretty cool."

Former Devils remember Brodeur 'as a winner'

Thursday, 01.29.2015 / 4:53 PM / NHL Insider

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- Retired New Jersey Devils defenseman Ken Daneyko, affectionately called "Mr. Devil" by many fans, watched with interest the retirement announcement by good friend and former teammate Martin Brodeur at Scottrade Center in St. Louis on Thursday.

One thing immediately struck him.

"I didn't see the New Jersey Devils logo in the background," Daneyko said with a grin. "It was a little awkward, I'm not going to lie. I guess I'm a little selfish. I would have liked to have seen the big Devils logo back there.

"Maybe down the road we will see Marty in front of the Devils logo because this was a subdued press conference [in St. Louis]. We're going to have, more sooner than later, the retirement night and jersey raising to the rafters. Maybe then we'll be able to soak in a little more about what Marty meant to the New Jersey Devils and the career he had."

Brodeur retires, named senior adviser to Blues GM

Thursday, 01.29.2015 / 2:22 PM / News

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

ST. LOUIS -- Goalie Martin Brodeur ended his playing career the same way he started it: with a big smile on his face.

Brodeur, who established some of the greatest goaltending records in NHL history, including 691 wins and 125 shutouts, announced his retirement from the NHL on Thursday after a 22-year career, which included a brief stint with the St. Louis Blues. Brodeur will immediately join their front office as senior adviser to general manager Doug Armstrong.

When Brodeur, who spent the first 21 years of his career with the New Jersey Devils and won the Stanley Cup three times, signed a one-year, $700,000 contract in December that included incentives, he said he wasn't ready to let go of the game that meant so much to him.

As he stood at the podium with a suit and tie inside the Bud Light Zone at Scottrade Center, it was evident he finally had closure, even though there was the sense Brodeur feels like he can still play if needed.

"This is a great day for me," Brodeur said. "… This is something I've been thinking about for a long time. This is a great opportunity that the St. Louis Blues organization, (owner) Tom Stillman and Doug Armstrong are giving me and trusting me in doing. … This is going to be a great challenge for me."

Quote of the Day

This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.

— Senators coach Dave Cameron after getting eliminated in the first round by the Canadiens
