Report: Brodeur leaving Blues organization
Hall of Fame goaltender Martin Brodeur is leaving the St. Louis Blues organization, sources told The Athletic's Jeremy Rutherford.
Brodeur, whose playing career ended in the Gateway City, has served as the Blues' assistant general manager for the last three years, but his contract expired in June and he has apparently decided to move on.
His name surfaced as a candidate for GM jobs earlier this summer, but when asked about it, he said he wasn't looking for a time-consuming, demanding job.
"It’s always nice to hear your name, but it’s something I’m not really looking forward to move on to take bigger roles," Brodeur said in June. "Just being on the sidelines is good for me for now. I’ve got an 8-year-old (Max) at home, so I’ve got to spend a little time with him."
Brodeur told The Athletic that he planned to be back, and GM Doug Armstrong confirmed the same, but it appears he had a change of heart - perhaps for a reunion with his old team.
Rutherford added that it's been heavily speculated that Brodeur would be interested in taking on a role with the New Jersey Devils once his tenure in St. Louis ended.
