Report: Devils' Brodeur won't play after father's death

New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur won't be starting as expected in the team's preseason finale Thursday night against the Philadelphia Flyers, as reports circulated Thursday afternoon that his father Denis died at age 82.

Brodeur left the team to fly to Montreal before learning of his father's death.

Cory Schneider, who has allowed just one goal in three preseason appearances, will instead get the start. Keith Kinkaid will serve as his backup.

Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
