New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur has hired high-profile agent Pat Brisson, as he nears becoming an unrestricted free agent.
The NHL's all-time winningest goalie remains without a contract from the Devils, after he spent his entire career with New Jersey since being selected in the first round in 1990.
"He will be testing free agency if a deal is not in place by Sunday," Brisson told ESPN.com in an email Friday.
Brodeur, 40, told reporters after the Stanley Cup finals that it would be difficult to picture himself playing for another team.
"I don't see myself at all doing that," he said. "But again, I think circumstances are out of my hands. You never know, I guess. I don't want to. It definitely would have to be something really weird that I'm going to do that. The Devils is what I am, what I believe in, and this is where I want to be."
