Goaltender Martin Brodeur remains one of the most prominent names on the NHL free-agent market. He said Thursday it could stay that way for a while.
"I'm still looking for the right fit, and the right fit might not come this summer, it might come later on in the fall," Brodeur told Yahoo Sports. "I'm pretty open-minded. Regardless of what happens, if I play or don't play, I'm ready for anything. I'm looking forward to a new challenge, regardless if it's outside of hockey or still in hockey with a different organization."
There are few apparent openings for a No. 1 goalie as Brodeur looks to move on from the New Jersey Devils, and many Stanley Cup threats seemingly have their backup in place.
"If I'm going to not play with a contender, then definitely I'd like to play a lot," the 42-year-old said. "I'm really open-minded about the situation I'm looking for, but it's pretty specific, and me and my agent (Pat Brisson) are kind of looking at different options."
