NEWARK - A statue honoring legendary New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur is expected to be unveiled in Newark Monday.

The unveiling will coincide with the retirement of Brodeur’s number. Brodeur won three Stanley Cups and an NHL record 691 games during his tenure with the team.

The statue was sculpted by California artist Jon Krawczyk, who is originally from Boonton Township.  Krawczyk says that he is a huge Devils fan and that it was an honor to sculpt the statue.

"Friends and family are like ‘You did the Marty sculpture!’ and when they see it I hope everyone's blown away by it,” Krawczyk says.

The artist was only given four months to make the statue. It would normally take him about 10 months for a similar sculpture.

This isn’t the first sculpture that Krawczyk has in the tri-state area. He also made a 9/11 memorial cross that stands about a block away from the World Trade Center.

The Brodeur statue will be unveiled Feb. 8 at 5:30 p.m. at the Prudential Center.
