The New Jersey Devils today released a first look at the making of the No. 30 Martin Brodeur banner that will be raised at Prudential Center on Tuesday, February 9 when the team retires the legendary goaltender’s number. All fans in attendance for the Martin Brodeur Jersey Retirement presented by Prudential will receive a replica of the No. 30 banner.
The special video was shot and edited by MSG Networks and will debut during Thursday night’s Devils-Maple Leafs telecast on MSG+. To view the video, CLICK HERE.
Brodeur’s No. 30 will be the fourth number retired by the Devils, joining Scott Stevens’ No. 4 (2006), Ken Daneyko’s No. 3 (2006), and Scott Niedermayer’s No. 27 (2011) in the rafters of The Rock. The trio will join Brodeur on the ice for the special pre-game ceremony.
Custom made by New England Flag & Banner, the market leader in hand-sewn banner design and creation, the banner features the company’s trademark luck penny sewn underneath the label, wishing the recipient well in the future. Located outside of Boston, MA, New England Flag & Banner has been providing hand-sewn banners to professional teams and colleges since 1892.
“New England Flag & Banner has created banners for the jersey retirements of the greatest sports heroes of all time, including Gretzky, Orr, Chamberlain and Russell, and Martin Brodeur indisputably belongs in that company,” said Ned Flynn, New England Flag & Banner President. “We have the unique ability to be a part of iconic events, including the Devils’ three Stanley Cup Championships, and it’s an honor to once again participate in a historic moment in New Jersey.”
