New Jersey Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello told The (Bergen) Record that goaltender Martin Brodeur remains day-to-day with a sore back, and he does not anticipate Brodeur joining the team on its current road trip.
Brodeur has not played since removing himself during warm-ups prior to the Devils' game Feb. 23 against the Washington Capitals.
He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
