New Jersey Devils veteran goaltender Martin Brodeur could be wearing a new uniform when the puck is dropped for the 2012-13 season.
Brodeur, an unrestricted free agent on Sunday, has hired player agent Pat Brisson to represent him and might be ready to test his value on the open market.
The 40-year-old netminder has had limited conversation with the Devils on a new deal and though he could still re-sign with the only NHL team he's played for, his new agent says he will entertain offers from other teams if an agreement is not reached at the beginning of the free agent period.
"He will be testing free agency if a deal is not in place by Sunday," Brisson told TSN on Friday.
The Montreal native and three-time Stanley Cup champion was 31-21-4 with a 2.41 goals against average last season and helped lead the New Jersey Devils into the Stanley Cup Final where they were defeated in six games by the Los Angeles Kings.
This would be very weird.
I could see the Flyers going full court pressure to sign him.
