Brodeur to miss 7 to 10 days

Martin Brodeur will miss the next seven to 10 days to rehab his right shoulder, but will not require surgery.

Brodeur suffered the injury while making a save in the first period of Thursday’s game against Los Angeles. He traveled but did not dress for the Devils' 3-2 shootout win in Nashville on Saturday.

Backup Johan Hedberg (3-0) has performed well in Brodeur’s absence. He relieved Brodeur to start the second period of the 2-1 shootout win over the Kings, then made 29 saves against the Predators.

Hedberg is 12-2 in his last 14 appearances going back to last season.

“He’s been very good, exactly as advertised,” coach Peter DeBoer said. “He’s a great pro, great person. Someone gave me a stat that he’s [12-2] going back to last year in his last [14] games.”

Hedberg has stopped 45 of 47 shots he’s seen in relief, and is 4-for-4 in the shootout. The Devils are off to a 3-1-0 start and host San Jose on Friday. 

“Obviously when you’ve got a guy like Marty you want to take a cautious approach and a long-term approach, anyway, that he’s with you for the entire year,” said DeBoer. “But it definitely makes it easier when you’ve got a guy that’s capable of coming in and playing like Heddy has.”

Goaltender Keith Kinkaid has been practicing with the team since his recall from Albany (AHL) on Monday.
