Brodeur played 21 seasons with the Devils after being selected with the No. 20 overall pick in the 1990 NHL Draft.

"I didn’t know where New Jersey was, but my agent was happy and said that means American dollars, so that’s good," said Brodeur, who finished his career by playing seven games with the St. Louis Blues last season before retiring. "I had no clue what exactly I was getting into and my father (Denis Brodeur) told me that I was a number in an organization and that it was up to me to become No. 1 (on the depth chart), and eventually I did."
