Devils Brodeur A Great Time Playing The Game

New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur turns 41 years of age on May 6, and he has one year remaining on his contract after the 2013 season.

But, from the sounds of it, theres still a lot of hockey left in the future Hall-of-Famer. His comments made Monday suggest he may look to prolong his playing career past this current deal a two-year, $9 million contract and that may include signing a contract extension with the Devils.

As he says: who knows?

Its the last year on my contract and thats about it. This year, even though we didnt make the playoffs, I had a great time playing the game, Brodeur told northjersey.com.

I really had a good time competing at the level I wanted to compete (at) and if it stays like that and Im still having fun, who knows thats going to happen? Im not putting a decision in my mind.

Two, three years ago, it was harder to make that decision, but now, for whatever reason, I dont know if its the way the game is here, I really enjoy we have a chance to win every single game and the coaches make it fun to come to the rink.

Brodeur, who helped guide New Jersey to an appearance in the Stanley Cup Final last year, played in 29 of the Devils 48 games this season.

He posted a 13-9-7 record. He also has a career regular season record of 669-380-105 record.
