Veteran goaltender Martin Brodeur will practice with the Blues on a tryout basis, the team announced Wednesday. Brodeur's first practice is on Friday. 

Brodeur said last week that he would like to continue playing. "I still have that fire—I’d like to play again," he said. 

Blues goalie Brian Elliot has been placed on injured reserve due to a lower body injury. The team called up Jordan Binnington from the AHL as an emergency recall to serve as the backup to Jake Allen.

Brodeur, 42, played 21 seasons for the Devils but the team did not offer him a contract after the end of last season. He split time with Cory Schneider last year, starting 39 of New Jersey's 82 games. In each of his past two seasons, Brodeur has posted a .901 save percentage, the lowest of his career, excluding a brief four-game stint as a 19-year-old.
