Brodeur to be out 3-4 months

NEWARK, N.J. - New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur is expected to miss up to four months after undergoing elbow surgery.

The 36-year-old Brodeur will undergo surgery Thursday to repair the distal bicep in the left elbow, the Devils said Tuesday.

'This is not a career-ending injury,' Devils president and general manager Lou Lamoriello said. 'This is a bump in the road. (He'll have) a total recovery, 100 percent and with this type of surgery there is no doubt about and I have total confidence that he will be back in a short period of time.'

Brodeur was injured Saturday against Atlanta.
