Goaltender Martin Brodeur could be out a while yet.

So, it makes sense for New Jersey to take every precaution possible as they try to chase the ultimate prize this season. If your fantasy hockey roster is lacking goaltender depth, Johan Hedberg could be a pretty decent option with the absence of Brodeur. Especially, In salary- cap league formats.
