NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -The New Jersey Devils say goalie Martin Brodeur will have elbow surgery and be out three to four months.
The four-time Vezina Trophy winner will undergo surgery Thursday to repair the distal bicep in the left elbow. The top goalie was injured Saturday night in a game against Atlanta.
Brodeur was named the NHL's top goaltender last season. The 15-year veteran has led the Devils to three Stanley Cups in a career that has him on the verge of surpassing Patrick Roy's NHL record for career wins.
He's also closing in on Terry Sawchuk's record for career shutouts.
