With the goaltending future in Calgary a big question mark, the Calgary Flames have signed goalie Laurent Brossoit to a three year entry level contract.
Brossoit was selected by the Flames in the sixth round, 164th overall, of the 2011 NHL draft. After helping his junior team, the Edmonton Oil Kings, reach the second round of the Western Hockey League playoffs, Brossoit was named the CHL goaltender of the week a few days back. One of the goalies that competed for one of the spots on the 2013 Canadian World Junior squad, Brossoit finished the WHL regular season third in goals-against average (2.25), sixth in save percentage (.917) and seventh in wins (33) and shutouts (five).
Last season, the Surrey, BC native had a record of 42-13-5 with 3 shutouts in 61 games and posted a 2.47 goals against and .914 save percentage. Brossoit was 16-4 with 2 shutouts and had a 2.04 goals against and .933 save percentage, good enough to secure a spot in the CHL’s Memorial Cup. He started all four games at the mini tournament and was 1-3 with a 4.04 goals against and .871 save percentage.
