Brodeur gets 100 shutouts

On February 3, 2006, New Jersey Devil, Martin Brodeur had 28 saves and became the third NHL goalie to shutout 100 games with a 3-0 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes.

Devil’s goals were scored by Patrik Elias, Zach Parise in the second period and Brian Gionta in the third. Carolina goalie Cam Ward made 18 saves.

With the shutout, Brodeur joined the ranks of Hall of Famers Terry Sawchuk and George Hainsworth. He currently leads the league with 125 shutouts.

Brodeur was 19 when he was drafted the Devils in 1990. He won 682 of 1248 games played and saved over 91 percent of the shots against him in 22 seasons. He also managed to score two goals and get 45 assists. His sentences in the penalty box totaled 120 minutes.

Brodeur was chosen to represent his country, Canada, in the Olympics three times, receiving a gold medal in 2002 and 2010. He helped lead team Canada to titles in the 2004 World Cup and 2005 International Ice Hockey Federation Championship. The netminder also helped the Devils on the road to three Stanley Cup Championships.

The future Hall of Famer retired after seven games with the St. Louis Blues in the 2014-15 season.

Brodeur’s number, 30, will be retired by the Devils before the Feb. 9 against the Edmonton Oilers.
