NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Martin Brodeur is staying with the New Jersey Devils.
Despite speculation that the Devils were considering dealing the NHL’s winningest goaltender, the 41-year-old will finish his 20th consecutive season in New Jersey after Wednesday’s trade deadline expired.
Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello refused to say whether any teams either inquired about Brodeur’s availability or they offered him to anyone. He also refused to say whether Brodeur had waived his no-trade clause or given him a list of teams to which he would agree to be traded.
WFAN co-hosts Joe Benigno and Jody McDonald asked Lamoriello on Wednesday afternoon how close he came to trading the iconic goalie, and the executive was at a loss for words.
