With the return of Martin Brodeur, Scott Clemmensen has been sent down to the Lowell Devils of the American Hockey League. Brodeur had missed the last four months of the regular season with an elbow injury sustained in a November 1, 2008 game against the Atlanta Thrashers. Brodeur, who will start tonight on Thursday against the Colorado Avalanche, has gone 6-2-2 this season so far with a 2.16 GAA and a save percentage of 0.916.
Clemmensen played well in place of Brodeur, going 25-13-1 in the NHL with a 2.39 GAA. The 31-year old from Des Moines, Iowa has stopped 91.7% of all shots faced.
