Jamie Langenbrunner on verge of being traded by Devils

Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello has asked captain Jamie Langenbrunner to waive his no-trade clause and is on the verge of dealing the veteran right winger.

Langenbrunner will not play in tonight’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

“I’ve been in discussions with the team (about waiving the no-trade clause),” Langenbrunner said via telephone. “The fact that I’m not there tonight probably means a trade will be happening sooner rather than later.

“I’m in limbo waiting.”

As of 5:30 p.m. ,he had not been traded.

Lamoriello was unavailable for comment as he worked to finalize a trade.

Langenbrunner has spoken over the last few days about the possibility of being traded. He would have to waive his no-trade clause, so a deal would be to a contender in either conference. The 35-year-old native of Cloquet, Minn., is earning $2.8 million in the final season of his contract. He can become an unrestricted free agent July 1.
