Devils goalie Martin Brodeur says next season 'probably' going to be his last
Brodeur, 42, will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason. He played in 39 games this past season for the Devils, posting a 19-14-6 record, with a .901 save percentage and a 2.51 goals against average.
The team has 28-year-old Cory Schneider waiting in the wings should the team decide to move on and not re-sign Brodeur.
"I’m going to give myself the opportunity to look at what’s out there and see if there’s something that’s interesting to me," Brodeur told The Record. "It doesn’t mean it’s not going to be in New Jersey, but I’m going to look everywhere."
NHL teams can start talking to unrestricted free agents June 25, but can't sign them until July 1.
"This organization means everything to me," Brodeur said. "I don’t feel pushed out. I feel appreciated in all ways. … But, like any competitor, you want to play. That’s why I want to see if there’s a place that I can play a lot more. If not, it’s going to be a team that is going to have a really good chance to win if I’m not going to play as much."
