Martin started his ice hockey career as a forward, then played as goalie when his coach asked him to play as a backup at the position. He was taught a variety of styles at goaltending, and became a part of the Quebec Major Junior League. He played with the Saint-Hyacinthe Laser, leading him to get several honors. He then joined the 1990 NHL Entry Draft and was selected in the first round by the New Jersey Devils.
He made his NFL debut, and would become a fulltime player in the 1993 season. He gained a lot of recognition for the best rookie award, the Calder Trophy. He helped the Devils get the second best record in the league, and they would reach the Eastern Conference Finals. They made their first Stanley Cup appearance in the extended lockout season, which they would win against the Detroit Red Wings. He became part of the All-Star game in 1995 and would play in the 1996 World Cup of Hockey with Team Canada, which they lost in the finals. In 1996, New Jersey would finish third in the league. He was named to the All-Star team again, and won the Jennings Trophy. He became the second goaltender to score in the playoffs in NHL history, but they lost in the first round of the playoffs and they would also be eliminated in the first round of the 1998 season’s playoffs.
In 1999, he made his second career goal in a game against the Flyers. They would go on to make the Stanley Cup final that year against the Dallas Stars, and won their second Stanley Cup Championship in six years. He continued to play consistently, reaching the 40-win mark the following season, the third time in his career. They made back-to-back Stanley Cup appearances, but lost against the Colorado Avalanche. In 2001, he was an MVP Candidate, and would win the Vezina Trophy the following year. He also won the Jennings Trophy Again, and was a Hart Memorial Trophy finalist.
He won a second consecutive Vezina Trophy in 2003, but would lose in the first round of the playoffs.
Due to his play of getting behind the net to handle the puck, the league instated what would be called the “Brodeur Rule” which prevented goaltenders from playing the puck behind the goal line. He signed a contract extension in 2006 worth $31.2 million over six years, which would increase his net worth significantly. He continued adding to his impressive resume, and would reach the second round of the playoffs. 2006 marked his ninth All-Star game appearance, and his third Vezina Trophy win, setting records once again. He tied the NHL record for most wins in a single season in 2007 at 47, and became the second goalie in NHL history to reach 500 wins. He would break numerous goaltender records in 2009, and would set a win streak which would push him near the all-time win record. He would consistently perform well, and would help the Devils make another Stanley Cup Finals appearance. He remained with the Devils until 2014, when he joined the St. Louis Blues, but then retired in 2015.
For his personal life, it is known that Martin was married to Melanie Dubois(1995-2005) and they have four children. He would then marry Genevieve Nault in 2008; they have a son together.
