Devils goalie Martin Brodeur will continue to rehab his injured right shoulder and will be out at least 7-10 more days, but he will not need surgery, the team announced Wednesday afternoon.
Brodeur hasn't been on the ice since injuring his shoulder in the first period against the Kings last Thursday. He met with his doctor Tuesday and the team received the results Wednesday.
The Devils don't play again until Friday at home against San Jose. It is likely that Johan Hedberg gets the start and Keith Kinkaid, who dressed for last Saturday's game in Nashville, remains as his backup.
I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
