Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
When Sidorkiewicz was acquired from the Senators, the plan was for him to be Chris Terreri's backup.

However, he had hurt his shoulder the season before that required surgery, and as a result, he started the 93-94 season
in recovery from that surgery.

That was what opened the door for Marty Brodeur to step in and make the net all his. As a result, when Sidorkiewicz
returned to action, he only saw 3 games with the Devils. He had spent the rest of the year either with the Albany River
Rats of the AHL or with the Fort Wayne Komets of the IHL.

It would be more of the same for the rest of his years under Devils contract. He saw one more game in the NHL, a
relief effort in his last year playing.

After retirement, he took to coaching, joining the Erie Otters' staff as their goaltending coach. He would be promoted to
assistant, and finally head coach in 2006. He resigned from that post after the 07-08 season.
