from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,
Kevin Weekes said he’s not closing the door a return to the Devils, but the 34-year-old goaltender admits that he probably won’t be re-signing with the team.
“That’s the way it’s looking,” he said today via telephone from Toronto. “You never know in pro sports, but right now that’s the way it looks.”
So, it appears as if Yann Danis or rookie Jeff Frazee will be the Devils’ backup goaltender in 2009-10. Although Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello left the door open for Weekes to return when he signed Danis on July 10, the sides have not been able to reach an agreement and Weekes is exploring other opportunities.
“There’s other opportunities, but it’s also just looking at a lot of different factors,” he said. “Like Lou always says, free agency is always an interesting thing. It’s an inexact science. You can’t always retain all of your free agents and in my case I fulfilled my obligation. I think I brought a lot of value to the role and I played my role with pride, even though I didn’t get to play as much hockey as I would have liked to have played even when Marty (Brodeur) was injured.
