Report: Martin Brodeur would welcome trade from Devils

Martin Brodeur

The NHL has already seen six goalies being traded since last Friday, and with the league’s trade deadline closing at 3pm EST on Wednesday, there may be another goalie on the move.

New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur, who has been with the team since the 1991-92 season, is reportedly open to being traded before the deadline. According to Katie Strang of ESPN New York, a source close to the situation says that Brodeur is willing to be moved, although there may not be many teams left for him.

Many speculated that the Minnesota Wild were in on the stakes for Brodeur, but that changed when they acquired Ilya Bryzgalov on Tuesday. Broduer reportedly also told ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun that he would accept any move that general manager Lou Lamoriello decides to make.

Cory Schneider has the spot as the Devils’ primary goal keeper, so for Brodeur, the NHL’s all-time leader in victories, a change of scenery would do well. On the season, he has 2.49 goals-against average and a .899 save percentage this season, and for his career he has a 2.24 goals-against average, and a .912 save percentage.
