Was Denis a radio commentator for the Canadiens? I swear I remember seeing some segment about Marty back in the mid 90s, and they touched on Denis a little bit too. And I swear they said he was currently the color commentator for the Canadiens, and even the Expos too I think.
This is going back to 95 or 96 so maybe I'm remembering wrong. It might have just said he was the photographer for the Canadiens/Expos, but I'm remembering something about commentary on the radio too.
No, he never was a commentator. But he was the photographer for the Habs and he did some work for the Expos also. Great work, as usual.
“Denis Brodeur's images brought the action, the drama and the passion of the game sharply into focus for generations of fans.”
"Some of the greatest teams and players in hockey history, incl. his son Martin, are preserved forever by his grand body of work. Memorialized, as well, is Denis' deep love of what he did and the sport he covered."
Damn, I had a feeling something was up when Brodeur was pulled from the game, didn't get to check any other news until now. I'm glad Martin got a chance to get up there. My thoughts are with him and the whole family.
Damn it. RIP Denis. One of the greatest hockey photographers of all time. Condolences to the Brodeur family.
wow, what a photo. a Legend at his craft as is his son. of course everyone identifies him with the above pic and being Marty's dad. but aside from hockey, he was a photog for the Montreal Expos , Montreal Alouettes and the CFL and also Formula 1 auto racing and professional tennis to name a few more.
