The St. Louis Blues were NHL goaltending legend Martin Brodeur's final stop as a player, and after the same organization named him assistant GM Wednesday and signed him to a three-year deal, the organization remains his only stop as he continues a management career that began last season.

The 43-year-old surefire Hockey Hall-of-Famer joined the Blues as a free agent in December of last season and played his last seven NHL games with the team, posting a 3-3-0 record before retiring Jan. 29 and immediately joining GM Doug Armstrong and his management team as a senior advisor to the GM.

Some may have expected him to rejoin the New Jersey Devils organization for which he played 1,259 regular-season games, but with the departure of GM Lou Lamoriello earlier this month and the installation of former Penguins GM Ray Shero as the new architect of the team, there was no impetus for Brodeur to do so. He'll apprentice in a market that will allow him room to grow and serve as a great sounding board for young goalie Jake Allen and other netminders in the organization.
