On July 1, the long-time New Jersey Devil Martin Brodeur will be a free agent. The 42-year-old goalie said that he wants to test the waters of free agency instead of returning to the Devils.

Brodeur is the NHL’s all-time winningest goalie, and has never spent a season away from New Jersey since entering the league in 1991. A few years ago, Brodeur tested free agency before returning to the Devils. While he has not completely ruled out a return to NJ, he made it clear he’s ready to go elsewhere this time, according to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun.

With his contract up on June 30 and Cory Schneider also fighting for a spot in net, Brodeur feels that it is time to move on from NJ. 

“At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter where I go next, I’m always going to be a Devil. I’m always going to come back to the organization. But I want to play one more year. So I’ll see what’s out there,” Brodeur said to LeBrun.

In his career, Brodeur has a 688-394-105-49 record. He has also won three Stanley Cups and four Vezina Trophies.

Even though she’s from New Jersey, the Devils will always come second to her Boston Bruins. Living in a family full of Devils fans and college full of Penguins fans, her Bruins memorabilia is often chirped– but she accepts that’s what you get when you cheer for an out-of-state team. She loves following the game no matter who’s playing, though. Twitter: @DaniSanGiacomo
