Martin Brodeur joins Hockey Night in Canada
3-time Stanley Cup-winning goalie will serve as a guest analyst
The Hockey Night In Canada team added some serious playoff experience to its lineup, bringing three more Stanley Cups to its roster on Tuesday.
Martin Brodeur will join the Studio 42 panel as a guest analyst starting with Game 4 between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Ottawa Senators on Wednesday (CBC, CBCSports.ca, 7 p.m. ET).
Brodeur joins host Ron MacLean, P.J. Stock, Elliotte Friedman, Glenn Healy, Kevin Weekes, and Andi Petrillo in studio between periods, adding further analysis to CBC’s playoff broadcasts.
"With so much playoff experience and success, Martin brings an extra layer of insight and expertise to our already stellar team," Trevor Pilling, CBC's head of sports programming, said in a release."He’s a future Hall of Famer and our viewers will no doubt benefit from his experience and playoff wisdom. He adds a new point of view to the broadcast and we’re excited to have him as part of the Hockey Night in Canada family."
Largely considered one of the greatest goaltenders of all time, Brodeur is a four-time Vezina Trophy winner and a five-time Jennings Trophy winner. He won the the Calder Trophy as the league’s rookie of the year in 1994 and participated in 10 NHL All-Star games.
Brodeur also holds several NHL all-time records, including most wins (669), most regular-season shut-out wins (121), most playoff shut-out wins (24), and most wins in a single season (48).
"I am thrilled to join the esteemed team of broadcasters at Hockey Night in Canada, and look forward to sharing my insight and perspective with viewers," Brodeur said.
