NEWARK - A statue honoring renowned former New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur was unveiled at the Prudential Center in Newark Monday.

A large event was held at the Devils’ home rink to honor Brodeur and show off the statue to the team’s fans.

Brodeur was accompanied by his three sons at the unveiling. He says that he is happy with how the statue looks.

“It looks better than I thought it would. [Jon Krawczyk, the artist] did a great job on it. The equipment, everything about my mask, my pads, it’s pretty impressive,” Brodeur said.

The sculpture was made in California and shipped to New Jersey. Brodeur’s actual equipment was used to make the statue.

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

For now, the statue will be kept inside the arena. A permanent location has not been decided.

The Devils will retire Brodeur’s jersey Tuesday.
