To make room on the roster for the future Hall of Famer, New Jersey demoted Scott Clemmensen. From ESPN-
The New Jersey Devils have activated four-time Vezina Trophy winner Martin Brodeur from the injured reserve list, sending Scott Clemmensen back to their AHL affiliate in Lowell, Mass., despite his 25-13-1 record this season.
The move clears the way for Brodeur to start Thursday’s game against the Colorado Avalanche.
Brodeur tore a biceps in his left elbow in a game against Atlanta on Nov. 1 and had surgery days later.
In his absence, Clemmensen and Kevin Weekes have combined for 32 wins to help New Jersey move into first place in the Atlantic Division. Weekes is 7-4 with a 2.32 goals-against average and a .924 save percentage; Clemmensen has a 2.39 GAA and .917 save percentage.
If it had been up to me, I would have demoted Weekes. Neither of these guys can be expected to play much if Brodeur is back to his ironman status of starting 70 games a season.
