Devils’ Brodeur nearing end of Hall of Fame career

Arguably the best goalie of all time is slowing down at age 39

Brodeur keeps playing, even though fellow veteran Johan Hedberg might get more games this season, and even though his days of being a workhorse are long over.

The days of him being a dominant force between the pipes are over, too, but that doesn’t mean facing Brodeur is any less special.

“I don’t care who you are, probably as a forward you get a little kick, a little sparkle in your eye when you’re lucky enough to get a goal on him, because he has that great reputation,” Knuble said. “As a shooter, it’s a great challenge. You can’t help but feel good if you ever get one. He’s a Hall of Famer.”
