Denis Brodeur (born October 12, 1930, in Montreal, Quebec) is acknowledged as one of hockey's finest photographers and is the father of current New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur. He was the official photographer for the Montreal Canadiens for many years, and co-published a book entitled "Goalies - Guardians of the Net" back in 1996, which features his son Martin on the front cover.
In November 2006 the National Hockey League acquired Brodeur's photography work, which consisted of over 110,000 images from 40 years. Some of the legendary names included in this collection are the Phil Esposito, Jean Beliveau, Gordie Howe, Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, and Bobby Orr. He also captured many famous events and landmarks, from the nasty Boston-Montreal rivalry of the 1970’s right on up through the Devils’ first Stanley Cup in 1995. His image was featured on a hockey card for the 2004-2005 Upper Deck Series One Hockey.
