The Ottawa Senators signed the “other” Brodeur, Mike Brodeur, to a new deal according to TSN. The contract is a one-year, two-way contract, meaning the team is free to send him to the minors and call him up to the professional club whenever it needs to.
The 27-year old spent the majority of the 2009-10 season with Binghamton Senators, where he posted a 13-13-2 record in 36 games with a 3.06 goals-against average.
He recorded a 3-0-0 record with a 1.00 goals-against average and a .966 save percentage in three games in the NHL with Ottawa.
This doesn’t mean that Mike Brodeur is the future for Ottawa’s goalies, by any means.
Both Brian Elliott and Pascal Leclaire are signed through the 2010-11 season. Elliott had a solid, if unspectacular regular season but had an up-and-down playoffs. Leclaire was downright awful at times during the season but had a few high moments (particularly in helping Ottawa beat Pittsburgh in a triple-OT contest) in the postseason.
