Brodeur, Devils to Go Retro for St. Patrick’s Day
Martin Brodeur to sport replica of the first mask he wore in the NHL for March 17 game
On St. Patrick’s Day the Devils will wear copies of their original red, white and green jerseys for their game vs. the Penguins. Martin Brodeur is getting in on it by sporting a replica of the mask he wore in his first NHL game March 26, 1992.
“It’s kind of a replica. The original was painted over. Masks were pretty expensive. When I first started, a paint job was like $300 or $400. The mask was probably a couple thousand bucks.”
He’ll also be using a replica Sher-Wood stick for the game.
