It appears Martin Brodeur may postpone retirement and play another season in the NHL.

The veteran goaltender, who has a 13-10-1 record for the New Jersey Devils this year, would be 40-years-old at the start of the 2012-2013 season.

"I'm having fun," Brodeur told the New York Post.

"I feel differently about it now than I did last summer, or at the start of the season," Brodeur said. "It's not 100 percent, but I'm definitely leaning toward coming back next year."

Brodeur has played his entire 18-year NHL career as a member of the Devils, but with his contract running out at the end of the season, it remains to be seen if the team would welcome him back or not.

Brodeur told the Post that he would choose to return to New Jersey "first and foremost."

Brodeur is the NHL record holder for games played (1,159), wins (638), and shutouts (116). He is also tied with Patrick Roy for the most 30-win seasons (13).

"There's a bigger chance now than before," admitted Brodeur. "A few people I've spoken to have told me that if you think you still have that little flame, keep it going, because once it's out, it's out."

Brodeur is expected to start for the Devils when they take on the Winnipeg Jets tonight at the Prudential Center.
