The NHL is currently in the midst of a 16-day trade freeze due to the Sochi Olympics, but that doesn’t mean rumors and reports regarding players’ futures won’t continue to circulate. The latest involves one of the greatest players to ever play the game of hockey.
According to Rich Chere of The Star-Ledger, New Jersy Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur’s time with the only team he’s ever been with as a pro may be coming to an end. Chere reports that the 41-year old goaltender may be asked to waive his no-trade clause.
Now, there is nothing major or shocking about a player who is reportedly going to be asked to waive a NTC. However, when that player is of the stature that Brodeur is, it becomes a much bigger story. As far as requesting a trade, Brodeur told Chere it hasn’t really been discussed.
“I don’t know. I haven’t thought about it until I talk to people, and there is nothing planned yet. I’m probably going to wait,” Brodeur said.
The NHL trade deadline is March 5. Fansided will have a full rumor and deal tracker updating live all day long as we keep an eye on some of the biggest names that are possible to get dealt, including Brodeur.
