New Jersey Devils Can Keep a Brodeur on the Roster for the Next 20 Years

Brodeur, now 40 years old, isn't leaving New Jersey. He inked a two-year deal worth $9 million and will finish his career as a Devil.
But New Jersey may have a Brodeur on the roster for the next 20 years.
With Marty's career winding down, how is that possible? His name is Anthony Brodeur, Martin's 17-year-old son.
Anthony is a goaltender at one of Minnesota's top prep programs, Shattuck-St. Mary's. Anthony is eligible for the 2013 NHL entry entry draft, being held in Newark, N.J, oddly enough.
Brodeur is currently a "C-List" player, which projects him to be taken in the fourth, fifth or sixth round. This "C-List" talent went 24-3-1 with a 2.31 goals-against average, .900 save percentage and four shutouts with Shattuck in 2011-12.
Central Scouting's Al Jensen told NHL.com:
I saw Brodeur play last year and I liked the way he played. He's more of a "C List" watch to start this year. He has more of a hybrid style, has some of Marty's instincts. He reads plays well and reacts well, shows good quickness and athleticism. He's got a good glove and competes very well. He will obviously get a lot of attention this year, but will be a good watch.
Shattuck is quite the NHL pipeline. Some notable alumni include Zach Parise, Kyle Okposo, Drew Stafford, Derek Stepan, Sidney Crosby (attended for one year), Ryan Malone and Jonathan Toews.
We may be adding Anthony Brodeur to that list in 2013.
