NEWARK, N.J. (February 8, 2016) – Tonight at Prudential Center, in front of 4,000 fans, the New Jersey Devils unveiled “The Salute,” a statue of legendary goaltender Martin Brodeur that will be displayed at the arena. The statue was revealed on the eve of Brodeur’s No. 30 jersey retirement ceremony, which will take place before the Devils-Oilers game on Tuesday. Brodeur was joined by sons Anthony, Jeremy and Maxime.

The 900-pound bronze statue was created by renowned sculpture and artist Jon Krawczyk, who worked with Brodeur on the design. Krawczyk, a Boonton Township, N.J. native and lifelong Devils fan, who also created the hockey statue on Championship Plaza outside of Prudential Center, personally drove “The Salute” from his Malibu, Cali. studio to the arena late last week.
