Back from serving as an assistant coach on Team Canada in the world championships in Minsk, Belarus, Devils coach Pete DeBoer says he doesn’t know yet what will happen with goaltender Martin Brodeur, but he’d welcome having the future Hall of Famer and Cory Schneider back as his two goaltenders again next season.
The 42-year-old Brodeur, who is slated to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, has already stated he will explore the market before deciding what he’ll do, including possibly returning to the Devils, and also hasn't ruled out retirement if he can’t find the right fit for him. “First off, having been able to coach Marty Brodeur for three years has been privilege,” DeBoer said in an interview with Hockey Night in Canada Radio Wednesday. “You talk about a guy that will be able to tell his grandkids that he coached the best goaltender of all time and Jaromir Jagr on the same team, that’s something that I’ll always remember. “I did have a conversation with Marty at the end of the year. I think we’re in a wait and see kind of situation here. I haven’t gotten any updates on that. I can tell you if he wants to come back, I would welcome him with open arms.
