2002-03 Martin Brodeur New Jersey Devils Game Worn Jersey - Stanley Cup Season - Photo Match - Team Letter
Lot #77

This road red air-knit gamer by Koho was worn by Martin Brodeur during the 2002-03 NHL regular season and playoffs. The New Jersey Devils selected Brodeur in the 1st round of the 1990 NHL Entry Draft. Brodeur is boldly establishing staggering career totals and will go down in history as the man who turned around the fortunes of a once fledgling franchise. Martin now has more wins than any other goalie in NHL history; shattering Patrick Roy's Wins record. 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 finishing the 2013-14 sesason with 688.

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 lead the league with 45 Wins in 2009-10, as he added to his record and now has eight 40+ win seasons including a record breaking 48 wins in 2006-07. Brodeur has now led the league in Wins an impressive nine times. With 20 years under his belt, he has yet to have a season where his Goals Against Average was over a 2.70 and he has already recorded two seasons at a sub 2.00 GAA leaving him with a spectacular 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 success are his staggering playoff totals; his 113 playoff wins are good for 2nd best all-time, he has a record 24 playoff shutouts and a 2.02 GAA, he is leaving his mark as one of the all-time greats. In his trophy case already 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 10 NHL All Star games to his credit. He will undoubtedly be looked upon as a legendary Hall of Famer upon retirement.

The 2002-03 season was yet another great one for Brodeur. He won 41 games, 9 by way of shutout and posted a spectacular 2.02 GAA as he went on to lead his team to their 3rd Stanley Cup in franchise history later that spring. Marty won the Vezina, the Jennings, played in the NHL All Star game and was named 1st Team NHL All Star for his herculean efforts that season. The game wear on this spectacular 2nd set size 60 goalie cut sweater is solid and consists of numerous stick and puck marks, board burns, areas of fine pilling and several team-sewn repairs. Shown above are some beautiful photo matches of Brodeur wearing this exact jersey during the 2002-03 season. A tremendous well-worn photo matched example from the Devils last Cup winning season, choice! This jersey will be accompanied by a Devils team letter.
