Johan Hedberg has been a bit better over the last month or so, but he still had a rough season and finishes with a 6-10-3 record to show for it. Martin Brodeur is expected to return for another season, and Hedberg still has another year left on his contract, so he could end up with the same role in 2013-14. (Updated 4/27/13).

Henrik Lundqvist made 20 saves in coasting to his second shutout of the season, and Rick Nash scored twice for the playoff-bound New York Rangers in a 4-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Saturday in the regular-season finale for both teams.
Johan Hedberg, 38, will spend at least two more seasons as the Devils number two netminder after signing a two-year contract in July. Arguably one of the leagues top back-up goaltenders, Hedberg isnt just a handcuff for Martin Brodeur owners, as those in deep leagues that start many goaltenders can rest easy knowing that Hedberg figures to see more than his share of starts this season. Moose posted a 17-7-2 record last year with strong peripheral stats in 27 starts. Fortunately for Hedberg, the Devils farm system is not stocked with NHL-ready goaltending. Hes an experienced netminder thats worth a look in deeper leagues; if injury should befall Martin Brodeur, Hedbergs value in all formats rises. (Updated 8/14/12)
