With an injured right shoulder, New Jersey Devils netminder Martin Brodeur will be out between seven and 10 days to rehab his injury, according to the Devils’ website.

However, the 39-year-old goalie will not require surgery.

This news comes after Brodeur visited doctors Tuesday.

Brodeur hurt his shoulder while making a diving save in the first period of the Devils 2-1 shootout win Thursday against the Los Angeles Kings.

Team trainers attended to him during the following stoppage but Brodeur finished out the first period. He did not return after intermission. Brodeur let in one goal in 11 shots in that game.

Backup Johan Hedberg played the remainder of the game and got the win. He was a perfect 16-for-16 in net.

Brodeur is 0-1-0 with a 3.00 goals against average and .900 save percentage, so far this season.

Hedberg will replace Brodeur in net as the future Hall of Famer recovers. Keith Kinkaid, who was recalled from the Devils AHL affiliate in Albany, Tuesday, will serve as Hedberg’s backup.

The Devils are currently 3-1-0 this year. All the wins came with Hedberg between the pipes.

New Jersey will play host to the struggling San Jose Sharks, Friday.
