NEWARK, N.J. - New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur will undergo left elbow surgery on Thursday morning.
The NHL team did not reveal how long the star netminder will be out of action. Brodeur was injured in Saturday's 6-1 victory over the Atlanta Thrashers. He is seven wins shy of tying Patrick Roy's NHL record of 551 career victories.
Brodeur also is five shutouts away from tying Terry Sawchuk's NHL career mark of 103.
Brodeur is a three-time Stanley Cup champion and four-time Vezina Trophy winner.
