1996-97 Martin Brodeur New Jersey Devils Stanley Cup Playoffs Game Worn Jersey - Photo Match
Lot #125
This home white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Martin Brodeur during the 1996-97 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. The New Jersey Devils selected Brodeur in the 1st round of the 1990 NHL Entry Draft. Brodeur, who just retired last season, established staggering career totals and will go down in history as the man who turned around the fortunes of a once fledgling franchise. Martin has more wins than any other goalie in NHL history; shattering Patrick Roy's Wins record and finishing his career with 688. Martin was the youngest goaltender in history to 300, 400 and 500 Wins and is now the only goalie in history to sport 600 Wins.

Brodeur's record of consecutive 30-win seasons (12) came to an end in 2008-09 as he played in only 31 games due to injury. Picking up where he left off before the injury, Martin led the league with 45 Wins in 2009-10, as he added to his record of eight 40+ win seasons including a record breaking 48 wins in 2006-07. Brodeur led the league in Wins an impressive nine times. With 22 years in the books, Marty’s Goals Against Average was consistently in the low 2.00’s including two seasons at a sub 2.00 GAA. This helped him retire with a remarkable career GAA of 2.24. Martin's 124 career regular season shutouts shattered yet another long-standing record, as he eclipsed Terry Sawchuk at 103. If you combine playoff shutouts with regular season shutouts, Brodeur is also the all-time record holder with 148. As impressive as his regular season successes are, his staggering playoff totals are every bit their equal; his 113 playoff wins are good for 2nd best all-time, he has a record 24 playoff shutouts and a 2.02 GAA, having left his mark as one of the all-time greats. In his trophy case are (3) Stanley Cups, a Calder Trophy for rookie of the year, (5) Jennings trophies for allowing the fewest goals in a season, (4) Vezina Trophies awarded to the NHL’s top goaltender and (2) Olympic Gold Medals. Martin was 7 times a 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star and has 9 NHL All Star games to his credit.

This jersey has been customized by the Devils for Brodeur with side panels added and extending from the cuffs to the hem, enhancing its already large size. The game wear on this playoff set size 60 Goalie Cut sweater is solid and consists of stick, slash and puck marks, goal post paint transfer and pilling. Shown above are some beautiful photo matches of Brodeur wearing this exact jersey during the 1997 Stanley Cup Playoffs. On the inside hem is the official New Jersey Devils game worn jersey and set information. A tremendous well-worn early career photo matched offering of one of the all-time greatest goalies in NHL history, choice!
