Over the years, Brodeur has won three Stanley Cups, broken almost every goaltending record and has missed minimal time due to injury. However, with 21 years under his belt and a lockout looming, the next few seasons may be the last we see of the Hall of Fame goaltender.
Between Brodeur and Johan Hedberg, the combined age of the New Jersey Devils goaltenders is 79, making them the oldest duo in the league. Both signed two year deals in the offseason to finish their careers in New Jersey, but the organization is going to have to start looking elsewhere to fill the potential void in net.
Between the AHL, ECHL and college commitments, the Devils currently have five goaltenders on the radar that could potentially replace Brodeur in net. Keith Kinkaid, Jeff Frazee, Scott Wedgewood, Maxime Clermont and Chris Rawlings all had impressive rookie camps this year, and fans may see these players a lot more over the next few years.
Here is a look at where each goaltender is playing now and how they are faring during the 2012-2013 season.
