The St. Louis Blues have hired Martin Brodeur as their assistant general manager, the team announced on Wednesday. 

The team signed the former NHL goaltender to a three-year contract. He will assist general manager Doug Armstrong.

Brodeur signed with the Blues in December 2014 after 21 years with the New Jersey Devils. He retired in January and was named a senior adviser to Armstrong afterwards. 

The 43-year-old is the NHL's all-time regular season leader in wins (691), shutouts (125), games played (1,266) and minutes played (74,438). Over the course of his NHL career, Brodeur was named an All-Star 10 times.
