Signed Brodeur/Carter photo up for charity auction


Goaltender Martin Brodeur stands between the faceoff circles before his New Jersey Devils’ Feb. 19 Bell Centre game against the Canadiens, Gary Carter’s image projected onto the rink. Brodeur has signed a print of this photo for auction, proceeds going to the Gary Carter Foundation.

On Feb. 19, the Canadiens paid a pre-game tribute to the late Gary Carter, the hugely popular, Hall of Fame-bound former catcher of the Expos. The New Jersey Devils were at the Bell Centre that evening, and Gazette photographer Allen McInnis took a stirring portrait shown here of Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur, whose family was friendly with Carter through the catcher’s relationship with Denis Brodeur, Martin’s father and one-time Expos photographer.

Martin Brodeur has signed eight 8×10-inch prints of McInnis’s photo, symbolic of Carter’s uniform number. He will never again sign the image.

One of the prints is up for online auction now, 100 per cent of proceeds going to the Gary Carter Foundation. Go to, type in the search function and proceed to the auction. Warning: it won’t go for just a few dollars.

A second print will be sold at Brodeur’s annual charity golf tournament this summer. The remainder will stay with the Brodeur family.

    I found it , but instead of just putting the link, I put the whole NHL draft rated list. Sorry for that.

  4. Mike D says:

    Not sure if anyone else saw this, but Cole was fined $2500 for a slew-foot during the Edmonton game. I didn’t see that particular play but here’s a link to TSN’s very brief story:

    • Ian Cobb says:

      Mike . I did not see the penalty. But that is 2.5 grand not 25 grand, Right??

      • Mike D says:

        Yessir, $2,500.00

        I believe that’s the maximum fine allowed by he current CBA…..which is strange considering the league minimum salary is $500K and even a guy making the minimum would scoff at a measily 2.5K

    Ahh… just had a glance at the other thread.
    Ugly, ugly, ugly.
    It’s much nicer over here.
    Peaceful, kinda.
    Discussion of the Montreal hockey team, attended by significantly fewer ding-dongs filling up the page with inanities.

      Oh don’t worry, the ding-dongs will be migrating here shortly when they realize all the sane posters have stopped reacting to their drivel.

  6. Albatros says:

    Habs evidently are hot on Beauregard Boris Levishefsky of the Chech Elite League. He can skate, he can shoot, he can fight and at least on the ice he can score. The fact that he is the ugliest hockey player since Gary Doak means the management of the club won’t have to worry about him getting into any off-ice trouble.

  7. LafleurGuy says:

    Gary Carter, the Expos, the Canadiens, the CFL and the Alouettes (sorry, Eskimos fan), Montreal sports heroes, the city, the vibrant culture movingly affect so many of us from near and far.

    “May you live in interesting times.”

  8. habstrinifan says:


    Enough squabbling, prognosticating, petty bickering etc etc.

    I have a mission for everyone. This would save PG’s job. Refurbish Gainey’s reputation. Restore Habs glory!

    Go out and scour the hockey world for the following player as described by UN CANADIEN ERRANT. What a player eh?

    “Let’s call him a shorter Hal Gill but with the skating stride of a Phil Housley and the offensive vision of a Paul Coffey, augmented with the orneriness of Scott Stevens.”

    WOW! Can you say Stanley boys and girls?

    Me! I’ll stay and try to convince PG to include Kaberle in a trade for the above. PG sees something in Kaberle!

    Off you go now!
