ECHL: An ECHL Interview With Jeremy Brodeur

We all know the name Martin Brodeur who was a three-time Stanley Cup Champion who was elected into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2009 and is known for his time with the New Jersey Devils. Martin Brodeur spent 22 seasons in the NHL, putting up a record of 691-397-154 with a 2.24 GAA, 9.12 SV%, and 125 shutouts, oh and we can’t forget the three goals that he scored. However, Martin has a son, Jeremy, who is a goaltender and has found himself in the Devils system with the Adirondack Thunder for the 2023-24 season. “It’s pretty cool, he always gets reports on how we’re doing, so in the past he usually gets it from me now he’s getting it from other people, it’s really nice being in the organization, it’s different, but I’ve also done it in the past during the COVID year with Binghamton” said Jeremy when asked about the experience of him playing in the same organization that his father used to play in. The 26-year old is no stranger to the ECHL as he’s spent six seasons in the league playing in 99 games as putting up a record of 32-39-10 with a 3.36 GAA and .907 SV% as he’s seen time with the Toledo Walleye, Allen Americans, Norfolk Admirals, Maine Mariners, and South Carolina Stingrays.

Last season Jeremy went overseas to play in England where he played in 36 games with the Manchester Storm, putting up a record of 16-20 with 3.34 GAA, .917 SV%, and one shutout, “Playing over in England was an awesome experience. similar skill level to the ECHL, maybe a few less teams and a little bit of a different schedule but as far as the year went it went really good for my career, I got to play a lot of games, and hopefully it leads into a good year this year” said, Brodeur. Heading into the 2023-24 season, Brodeur is looking to build off of his experience from last season and is excited to be in the home locker room and getting support from the Glens Falls Faithful, unlike his previous encounters in Glens Falls, “I’ve played so many games on the road here when I was with Maine, and i hated playing here the fans were rowdy, and it made it tough for us, so I’m super excited to be on the opposite side of that and be able to enjoy the season with all of them” Brodeur said.

Adirondack has three goaltenders on their roster who are all expected to stay with the team once the regular season begins and Broduer is excited for the opportunity to be the veteran in the room as Vinnie Purpura is entering his second year in the ECHL after playing four games with the Thunder last season and Tyler Brennan who will get his first licks at professional hockey after spending last season the WHL with the Prince George Cougars as he was drafted in the fourth round by the Devils back in 2022, “In my past experience, if they are your best friends, you guys have the best success together; having two young guys in their first and second year here, it’s advantageous for all of us, and I get to show them the ropes a little bit, and I get to watch them do their thing, and if we all play great together we know we are all ready to stop that next puck” said Broduer
