Martin Brodeur has never played for any team except the New Jersey Devils. But if the 40-year old star goalie doesn't receive a deal by Sunday, he'll test free agency.
Martin Brodeur has spent his entire NHL career with the New Jersey Devils. But if he doesn't receive a new deal by Sunday -- July 1, the start of free agency -- he could look to take his talents elsewhere.
Brodeur's new agent, Pat Brisson, said that Brodeur is open to joining another team if he doesn't reach a deal with the Devils by the time the free agency period arrives.
"He will be testing free agency if a deal is not in place by Sunday," Brisson told ESPN.com via email Friday.
Envisioning Brodeur in another jersey is almost impossible. The 40-year-old netminder has played 19 seasons with the Devils, making nine All-Star Games and winning three Stanley Cup titles.
The four-time Vezina Trophy winner finished 31-21-4 last season with a 2.41 goals-against average, helping to lead the Devils to the Stanley Cup Finals before they fell to the Los Angeles Kings in six games.
