Martin Brodeur to announce retirement from NHL

NHL goaltending great Martin Brodeur will officially announce his retirement today in St. Louis.

Watch Brodeur's news conference live at 11:30 a.m. ET by clicking on the video player above.

Brodeur, 42, informed the St. Louis Blues earlier this week that his playing career is over. He'll assume a front-office position with the team, general manager Doug Armstrong said.

Among those expected to attend the news conference are former Blues and Hockey Hall of Famers Bernie Federko, Brett Hull and Al MacInnis.

Brodeur joined the Blues in late November after spending 21 seasons with New Jersey. The Devils decided to let him go after last season, and the goalie went unsigned until St. Louis gave him a tryout and later inked him to a one-year deal. He played seven games and recorded a shutout that extended his all-time regular-season record to 125 before calling it quits.

Brodeur will be remembered for his stellar run in Jersey, where he racked up the bulk of his NHL-record 691 regular-season wins. The Montreal native also won three Stanley Cups and four Vezina Trophies as the league's best goalie, and added a pair Olympic gold medals with Canada in 2002 and 2010.
