Any goaltender would love to be compared to the legendary Martin Brodeur. The longtime New Jersey Devils netminder is often regarded as the greatest of all time. Edmonton Oilers goaltender Mike Smith seems to have something in common with Brodeur, especially this year. Both Brodeur and Smith have had legendary...

While I am 100 percent a New Jersey Devils fan, I’m not someone you’d call a die-hard “hockey fan.” I fell into my love of the New Jersey Devils the same way I fell into loving any sports team growing up: They were the team near me. [Ed note: “Near” is the Philly-Jersey-New York area. I live in Central Jersey, right outside of the capital, if we’re really keeping score.] To be honest, my earliest memory of the Devils was admiring the horns on the NJ in their logo as an elementary school student; I didn’t know who played on the team until I started playing NHL ‘95 on the Genesis. As I got older, the idea of rocking a hockey jersey as a regular piece in my wardrobe was always appealing, given what guys like Snoop Dogg were rocking on Arsenio Hall, but I didn’t actually come to owning a Devils hockey jersey until a few years back. I sniped a red home jersey on eBay (I’m too quick to dirty white road jerseys), and during the quarantine, I dove headfirst into the vintage market, grabbing throwback hats and random pieces of nostalgia from sports teams in my era, primarily from the Devils. Why? Jersey pride, plain and simple. I could rock some dope colorways from other teams in the NHL (and I do, at times), but as I get older and realize what I’m about, rocking a Devils jersey just says it all, regardless of the box score. That same pride is what made me fall in love with the New Jersey Devils’ first third jersey, which was designed in part by Devils legend Martin Brodeur, considered by many to be one of the greatest goalies in NHL history. Brodeur tells Complex that this third jersey was one of the Executive VP of Business Development’s first jobs in his new role.
NEWARK, N.J. -- Martin Brodeur made history for 21 years as a goaltender for the New Jersey Devils, leading the franchise to three Stanley Cup championships. Now, he has made something else for the Devils: a new jersey, for New Jersey. "I wish we could have played in this," said...
Over this past weekend, an official, originally designed third jersey for the New Jersey Devils was leaked to the public by GabeTM (@GTAC13Jerseys). As I wrote about the leak, it was a bad look. A majority of the comments from the People Who Matter both here and on social media concurred with that assessment. I regret to write that GabeTM’s leak was legitimate. The New Jersey Devils officially announced their third jersey. It is indeed the black and white inconsistent-striped sweater with a “Jersey” word mark befitting of a knock-off brand.

Jonathan Bernier knew he was having a great year. He also knew he was tired of playing in games that didn’t matter. It was getting to him. Not that he was miserable being a Detroit Red Wing. Signing there in summer 2018 turned out to be a great move for his career. As a father of three, he grew roots in Birmingham, Mich., alongside his wife, Martine Forget. They loved the neighbourhood and the schools. They were big family people. And, on the ice, by Bernier’s second season as a Red Wing, he earned his longest look as a starting goaltender since the days of his big opportunity with the Toronto Maple Leafs from 2013-14 through 2015-16. Gradually earning a bigger share of the pie than Jimmy Howard’s, Bernier established himself as the backbone of a rebuilding Red Wings squad. This past season, sharing the net with Thomas Greiss, Bernier delivered the best work of his career.
Brodeur says the Devils locker rooms of his time could never quite find the 'happy medium' when it came to locker room music. The pictures of players walking into the arenas, headphones securely fastened to their heads, headphones of all different shapes and sizes. That wasn't always the case, at...

Martin Brodeur had never seen anything quite like it. When the Devils practiced during the 2006-07 season, the planned start time was when the veterans would take the ice. When it ended, players quickly shuffled off. That was the case for all of the future Hall-of-Fame goalie’s career up to that point.
