The original plan was for Martin Brodeur to fight through the discomfort, but after testing things out, Johan Hedberg got the nod for the New Jersey Devils on Sunday.

The future Hall-of-Famer is experiencing “a little soreness” after needing to ice his shoulder on Friday, according to The Bergen Record’s Tom Gulitti. He’s expected to be re-evaluated on Monday.

In the meantime, Hedberg, 39, gets back-to-back starts. It’s also his first home game of the season.

He had a tough go of things against the Washington Capitals on Saturday, allowing Alex Ovechkin‘s first hat trick of 2013 in a 5-1 loss. Still, in the grand scheme of things, he’s been strong in his spot starts. The Devils are currently in action against the Jets in New Jersey.
