Netminder Martin Brodeur retires, joins Blues' front office

St. Louis, MO, United States (4E Sports) - After announcing his retirement, Martin Brodeur , the NHL's all-time winningest netminder , will join the St. Louis Blues' front office.
The Blues will hold a news conference Thursday to officially announce the retirement, but team president and general manager Doug Armstrong said Tuesday that Brodeur will stay with the organization in a management role.
Brodeur , who sat out the first few months of the season, suited up for the Blues this season after starting goalie Brian Elliott suffered an injury. However, Brodeur dropped to the No. 3 role after Elliott returned earlier this month.
The 42-year-old Brodeur , a future first-ballot Hall of Famer, also has an open invitation from New Jersey GM Lou Lamoriello for a front-office position with the Devils, with whom he spent the previous 21 seasons.
Brodeur won 688 gameswith New Jersey, and hoisted the Stanley Cup on three occasions, in 1995, 2000 and 2003. He won 113 career playoff games with New Jersey, second only to Patrick Roy (151).
The 10-time All-Star finishes with a 140 more wins than Roy, who is No. 2 all time. Brodeur also captured the Vezina Trophy -- given to the league's top goaltender -- four times.
He also is a two-time Olympic gold medalist with Team Canada in 2002 and 2010.
Brodeur has played 1,266 career games -- also first all time among goaltenders -- and finishes with a 2.24 goals-against average.
