Forty-two-year-old goaltending great Martin Brodeur had never played a minute of his 21-year NHL career with anyone other than the New Jersey Devils.
Brodeur got his first start in net as a member of the St. Louis Blues last night in Nashville. He lost, but he was happy with his new team.
“We have skilled players and they make plays. It’s so different,” Brodeur said, according to Yahoo Sports. “I played in an organization that we were pretty limited in skill so we got the puck moving north all the time and didn’t really make plays. These guys, they’re talented, they’re making plays. I’m really happy with the way the boys played in front of me.”
The Blues lost to the Nashville Predators 4-3. The team is currently in second place in the NHL’s Central Division. Brodeur signed a one-year deal with St. Louis on Tuesday.
