Milestone: Martin Brodeur Becomes Winningest Goalie

In PWH, Special Features on May 10, 2011 at 11:49 am

A major record fell this season with very little fanfare. Time to right that wrong.

Portland Winterhawks starter Martin Brodeur has taken over the lead in career wins by a goaltender in the GWMHL, surpassing former Winterhawk Dominik Hasek. Brodeur also became the first netminder to break the 400-win barrier. As of the fourth quarter, Brodeur has 416 career wins to Hasek’s 395. The only other active goaltender in the top five is South Park‘s Roberto Luongo with 292.

It’s a bittersweet milestone – many would have liked to have seen Brodeur hit it with the El Dorado Lynx franchise, with whom he played 15 seasons and won three Gump Cups before being traded to Portland at the 2010 draft. But when the team moved to El Dorado, the team went into rebuild mode and Brodeur was shipped out for Tuomo Ruutu. Of course, it works out for everybody – the Lynx shore up their forward corps and Brodeur gets another shot at a championship.

You can find more historical stats on the League History page. Stay tuned – we’ve got a lot of seasons yet to add!
