The Devils said the 40-year-old Brodeur, the NHL's career leader in victories and shutouts, had "a little soreness." He was spotted Friday icing his right shoulder, but the team wouldn't comment on the injury.
Hedberg was in goal Saturday night in the Devils' 5-1 loss to Washington.
It's a tribute to him, and everything he's done and deserved is coming to fruition tonight with his jersey in the rafters. He's going to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer. And I said today, if he's not, take my stuff out. If he doesn't deserve to be in there first ballot, no one does. Except for (Wayne) Gretzky, I guess.
