Lot #585
This lot contains autographed mini helmets of Patrick Roy and Martin Brodeur.

The Montreal Canadiens selected Roy in the 3rd round of the 1984 NHL Entry Draft. There are many who consider Roy to be the greatest goaltender in the history of the sport. He retired as the NHL’s all-time winningest goalie with 551 wins, a longstanding record that was held by the legendary Terry Sawchuk and has since been surpassed by Martin Brodeur. Roy is the current record holder with an amazing 151 playoff Wins, more than 50 victories better than Martin Brodeur who resides in 2nd place. To go along with his 4 Stanley Cup rings, he carries 3 Conn Smythe Trophies as most valuable player of the playoffs. The first of those playoff MVP’s came as a rookie in 1986 when Roy led the upstart Canadiens back to Stanley Cup glory. Also to his credit are 3 Vezina Trophies and 5 Jennings Trophies, noting his excellence between the pipes. Patrick was 6 times a 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star while also appearing in double-digit NHL All Star games.

Following parts of 13 seasons tending goal and 2 Stanley Cups for the Montreal Canadiens, Roy was dealt to the expansion Colorado Avalanche where he continued his dominance and led his brethren to another pair of Stanley Cup titles. All told Patrick guarded the pipes over 19 NHL seasons. He went out while he was still one of the games best, posting 30+ Wins and 60+ games in each of his last 11 non-strike shortened seasons. His GAA in his final season was 2.18 while the season prior he posted a remarkable 1.94. Roy, who excelled during three different decades, will forever be viewed as one of hockey’s all-time greats.

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 and finishing last season with 669. 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 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 2.23. Martin's 121 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 145. 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.
