The New Jersey Devils have activated goaltender Martin Brodeur off injured reserve.
The Devils announced the move Tuesday, hours before playing the New York Rangers.
Brodeur, the NHL's all-time winningest goaltender, has been sidelined since mid-February with a pinched nerve in his upper back and neck. He missed 12 games and practiced with the team on Monday for the first time since being hurt.
Brodeur, who had an 8-2-3 record before being hurt, dressed as the backup against New York as Johan Hedberg made his 13th straight start.
The Devils assigned goaltender Jeff Frazee to Albany of the AHL to make room for Brodeur on the roster.
New Jersey also announced it recalled left wing Tim Sestito from Albany. He was not in the lineup on Tuesday.

On the verge of making his debut back between the...
New Jersey Devils prospect and Windsor Spitfires forward, Ben Johnson, has been charged and is facing two counts for alleged sexual assault.
Johnson, 18, was arrested early this morning after the alleged assaults took place in a Windsor nightclub washroom, according to the Windsor Star. He later appeared in provincial court and will reportedly be held in custody overnight.
Martin Brodeur is ready to return in a contest that figures to be critical to the New Jersey Devils' playoff hopes.
Brodeur will start for the first time in a month as the Devils try to end their road woes and hand the Carolina Hurricanes a fifth straight loss Thursday night.

Martin Brodeur is getting close, but Johan Hedberg is expected to be in net again for the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night.
He may not need much offensive help against the punchless New York Rangers.
The Devils look to avoid a three-game losing streak as they go for their fifth consecutive win over the visiting Rangers.

In the salary capped NHL, teams gain an advantage when their players produce a bigger value to their team than the price of their contract. It is necessary that several players exceed the value of their contract for a team to win the Stanley Cup. The most likely player to exceed his contract value is a player on an entry level deal. Thus it is very important not to waste the...

After a hot start, the Devils have crashed back to Earth, and sit two points ahead of the Rangers in the standings, although the Rangers have a game in hand.

New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur scored a surprising and odd goal tonight against the Carolina Hurricanes to put the Devils on top 1-0. Early in the first period, there was a delayed call on the Devils after a shot by Carolina that Brodeur stick saved, so, Hurricanes goaltender Dan Ellis left the net for an extra attacker. Jordan Staal received the puck and tried to pass...
