NEWARK, N.J. -- Martin Brodeur was supposed to start for the New Jersey Devils on Sunday against the Winnipeg Jets, but Johan Hedberg is getting the call instead. Hedberg will start for the second time in as many days.
Brodeur left the ice early during warmups and did not return. A team spokesman said Brodeur has "a little soreness, will be re-evaluated tomorrow."
You forget how good [Nieuwendyk] was. You hear the points and stuff and you almost forget until they kind of walk you through his career, and that was really cool for me. I might have felt it a little more than some of the other guys because he was one of my favorites growing up, but that was very cool and I'm honored to have been a part of it. I had chills the entire ceremony.
