Devils won't sign Anthony Brodeur: report

NHL.com @NHL

The New Jersey Devils will not sign goaltender Anthony Brodeur prior to the June 1 deadline for doing so, Northjersey.com reported Friday.

Brodeur was a seventh-round pick (No. 208) at the 2013 NHL Draft. His father, former Devils goalie Martin Brodeur, announced that selection at Prudential Center.

Anthony would be eligible for the 2015 NHL Draft, to be held June 26-27 in Sunrise, Fla.

"Lou [Lamoriello] had that conversation with Anthony today," Devils general manager Ray Shero told writer Tom Gulitti. "Obviously, if [Anthony] gets drafted that would be fantastic, but if he doesn't, there will be a spot for him in our development camp, and we would love to see him and we'll see what happens."

The website said Anthony Brodeur lost his starting position with Gatineau in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League this season and was claimed off waivers by Drummondville.

Martin Brodeur signed a three-year contract to be St. Louis Blues assistant general manager on May 20.

Shero replaced Lamoriello on May 4.
