Devils’ Brodeur still having ‘a great time playing the game’

New Jersey Devils’ goalie Martin Brodeur turns 41 years of age on May 6, and he has one year remaining on his contract after the 2013 season.

But, from the sounds of it, there’s still a lot of hockey left in the future Hall-of-Famer. His comments made Monday suggest he may look to prolong his playing career past this current deal – a two-year, $9 million contract – and that may include signing a contract extension with the Devils.

As he says: “…who knows?”

“It’s the last year on my contract and that’s about it. This year, even though we didn’t make the playoffs, I had a great time playing the game,” Brodeur told northjersey.com.

“I really had a good time competing at the level I wanted to compete (at) and if it stays like that and I’m still having fun, who knows that’s going to happen? I’m not putting a decision in my mind.

“Two, three years ago, it was harder to make that decision, but now, for whatever reason, I don’t know if it’s the way the game is here, I really enjoy we have a chance to win every single game and the coaches make it fun to come to the rink.”

Brodeur, who helped guide New Jersey to an appearance in the Stanley Cup Final last year, played in 29 of the Devils’ 48 games this season.

He posted a 13-9-7 record. He also has a career regular season record of 669-380-105 record.

    This future Hall of Famer has 121 career shutouts. Second among active NHL goalies is Roberto Luongo with 62. He is 34. The top guy on the list under the age of 30 is J.Quick with 25. So unless the NHL decides to make the nets smaller or allow goalies to add sheets of plywood to their gear, I doubt the people have yet to be born who will attend the game in which Marty’s record will be broken.
