TORONTO -- Martin Brodeur called everything about his Hall of Fame weekend overwhelming.
And that was just day one.
The legendary Devils goalie tried to soak in everything he could Friday, when Brodeur was introduced at the Hockey Hall of Fame and Scotiabank Arena prior to the Hall of Fame game, where the Devils lost to the Toronto Maple Leafs, 6-1.
Brodeur received his Hall of Fame ring early in the day before participating in a pregame ceremony at the rink. Between all the people he talked to on Friday and the months leading up to his induction, the goalie said he's still realizing what an exclusive group he's joining.
"I'm the 36th goalie. There's a little over over 100 players that are still alive and part of the Hall of Fame," Brodeur said. "It's a small group, and it's definitely a great honor to be here, and with my ad being so close to the hockey world, I got to meet a lot of these guys. I was fortunate to play with a lot guys that were in the Hall of Fame."
Brodeur will be officially inducted into the Hall of Fame on Monday.
He will also hit the ice one more time as during the Hall of Fame's alumni game on Sunday, where former teammates Scott Stevens, Scott Niedermayer and Ken Daneyko will also play.
As kid growing up, Brodeur said he always dreamed of playing in the NHL or winning a Stanley Cup, but getting to the Hall of Fame would have been a surreal thought.
"It's just a situation I never thought I was going be in," Brodeur said. "To be in the Hall of Fame is pretty crazy, just to think about that. so far it's been great. Getting to meet the inductees, and tonight we got to meet a lot of the Hall of Famers themselves. It's been great."
