Laurent Brossoit is set to become a Group VI UFA this summer.
Brossoit qualifies for that as he's 25-years-old, has been at the professional level for over three years, but hasn't appeared in at least 28 career NHL games where he's logged at least 30 minutes. In other words, because Brossoit never managed to establish himself with the Oilers, at this point he's allowed to become an UFA earlier than others. It would be somewhat surprising if the Oilers re-signed Brossoit, though if they did it would be to use him in the AHL. Apr 25 - 4:27 AM

The Oilers decision to demote Brossoit likely means that Cam Talbot is over his illness. That being said, Edmonton doesn't play again until Monday, so there is a chance that Talbot still isn't 100% and the Oilers will just wait until after the weekend to see if they need Brossoit back.
