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.

Thank you to Martin’s artist Sylvie Poitras for these photos. Check out her site to see more of Sylvie’s great work – airbrushzap.com.

Of course he finds time for some goaltending of his own as well, and despite his age, clings desperately to the idea that some NHL team will call him to play for them - though in his mid-forties (OK, late 40s) it'll likely be for a practice when everyone else on their depth chart has the flu and the shooter tutor has gone in for repairs.
