understands that what happened was just business. It’s not a knock on the 31-year-old goaltender, nor is it a reflection of what he was able to accomplish while filling in for an injured Martin Brodeur
But with Brodeur healthy again and ready to play Thursday against Colorado, Clemmensen was re-assigned Wednesday to Lowell (AHL).
"Obviously, I was disappointed," Clemmensen said via conference call. "I understand the business side of the sport. I understand all the options that were available to the team. I wish there was another alternative, but the situation is what it is. I’m disappointed in this scenario, but at the same time, I feel like I don’t have any regrets.
