The autobiography of hockey s mostcelebrated goalie

Martin Brodeur is one of the most successful and decorated goalies in the National Hockey League and in international hockey, and among the greatest goalies of the modern era. Every time he steps on the ice as the goaltender of the New Jersey Devils, he either sets a new record or edges ever closer to some of the most prestigious netminding records in the history of the sport.

A three-time Stanley cup champion, he is the only goalie in NHL history with 10 seasons of 30 wins or more, and in 2006 he set a new mark for consecutive playoff starts by an NHL goalie.

The numbers speak for themselves, but what they cannot express is that Martin Brodeur is at the very heart and soul of the Devils, and one of the team's greatest leaders. And when Canada finally ended a 50-year gold medal drought at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, it was Brodeur who stood tall in the crease.

In Brodeur: Beyond the Crease, the game's best netminder takes a candid, personal look at his career, his sport and his journey to the apex of the modern game, including updates from the 2006/2007 season.
