Devils' Goalie Martin Brodeur to Test Free Agency

Tue, 10 Jun 2014 18:51:00 +0000

Bruce Bennett/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- One of the best players to suit up for the New Jersey Devils could finally be ready to move on as goaltender Martin Brodeur said he will test free agency and likely move on from the team he's spent his entire career with.

"I've come to the conclusion that I'm definitely going to be available July 1,'' Brodeur told ESPN.com. "I want to play one more season and I want to see what's out there."

The 42-year-old Brodeur has played 21 seasons with the Devils after making his NHL debut back in 1991. And even though Brodeur harbors no ill feelings toward the organization, he feels both sides might be better off parting ways.

"I've had a lot of good conversations with the Devils, but I'm not inclined at going back at this point," said Brodeur, whose contract expires June 30. "I just feel that with [goalie Cory] Schneids the organization has to move on. Me being around might be tough a little bit for them. I don't completely put it out of the question, but I don't want to mess up the cards for the Devils."

Brodeur has gone 688-394-49 during his time wit the Devils. He's the NHL's all-time winningest goaltender.
