|Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
Broten's career in hockey is one of the more decorated ones the state of Minnesota has ever seen, having won a
championship on every level he's played on, doing so for the Roseau Rams, the Minnestota Golden Gophers, of
course, the Olympics, and lastly, in the NHL.
The NHL one is what us Devils fans would talk about, since this is where he won the Cup.
He is one of the best the Stars' franchise has ever seen, and his number 7 down there does belong in the rafters, where it
already is. However, a championship down there was the one thing missing, and the North Stars were close a couple
times on teams he was on.
The year he came to New Jersey showed that he could still be a valuable contributor on that Cup team. He was among
the team leaders in scoring, and also scored 4 game winners that postseason, including one against the Penguins in OT
that started Doc Emrick's "It's over!" trend.
The trade to the Kings was just for the end of the season. He finished his career with the Stars the year after. He would
move to Wisconsin after retirement and help run his wife's horse breeding establishment.
He was inducted into the US Hockey Hall of Fame in 2000 and 2003. In 2000, it was for him. In 2003, it was for the
Miracle On Ice team.
