The New Jersey Devils did not re-sign the 42-year-old during the offseason. He spent his entire career with the Devils after being a first-round pick in 1990 by the franchise.
During an appearance on the red carpet at the Hockey Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Monday, Brodeur spoke about what is ahead in his playing career.
“I’m willing to play any kind of role that would be offered to me, to a certain extent, in the right fit, in the right market,” Brodeur said.
“It’s been good, the time off, enjoying the kids, traveling a lot,” he said on Monday night. “Things that I could never do, I’m able to do. But again, I still have that fire — I’d like to play again.”
He finished 19-14-6 with a 2.51 goals against average last season while splitting time with Cory Scheider. As the full-time starter this season, the 28-year-old Scheider has gone 8-7-2 with a 2.71 GAA.
During his time with the Devils, Brodeur, who has 688 career victories, won three Stanley Cups and four Vezina Trophies as the league's best goalie.
