New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur is unlikely to play Friday against San Jose, according to a report Tuesday from the Bergen Record. The team is still waiting for results of an examination on his injured right shoulder.

New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur is unlikely to play Friday against San Jose, according to a report Tuesday from the Bergen Record. The team will have to wait a day to learn the results of the examination a doctor performed Tuesday on Brodeur's right shoulder, which he injured last Thursday against the Los Angeles Kings.

"Right now, he didn't practice today and if he doesn't (practice) tomorrow, he certainly won't," Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said of Brodeur's prospects of Friday. "So, there's a good chance of him not (playing Friday)."

As a result, the Devils have recalled goaltender Keith Kincaid from Albany (AHL) in order to serve as Johan Hedberg's backup as he did Saturday against Nashville. The Devils are unbeaten in three games since Brodeur's injury, with Hedberg going 3-0 with a 1.41 goals against average in that span.
