Laurent Brossoit thinks the fact that he played for four teams over two organizations last season was a good thing for him in the long run.
Brossoit played for the ECHL Alaska Aces and Bakersfield Condors as well as the AHL Abbotsford Heat and Oklahoma City Barons. He started the season as a member of Calgary's organization, but was dealt to the Edmonton Oilers. "Any time you find yourself facing so much adversity, playing for so many different teams and different leagues, going up and down, staying in hotels and having to battle through a lot, at the same time having some success, it helps you find what you need to do to find success under the different circumstances," Brossoit said. "That's one of the biggest things I learned last year. For me, I think that's what the biggest part was." Brossoit, 21, isn't expected to make the Oilers' opening game roster.

Brossoit hasn't allowed a goal in 126 minutes in the ECHL this season. At the same time, he has a 5.72 GAA and .824 save percentage in two AHL games. He does have the potential to be a good goaltender in the NHL, but he shouldn't be counted on to reach that level anytime soon.

Laurent Brossoit thinks he's in the race to be the Calgary Flames' top goaltender this season.

Brossoit's name was omitted when Flames GM Jay Feaster listed off the three players he thought could succeed Miikka Kiprusoff in 2013-14. "To be honest, I don’t read too much of the media and what the GM says and all that," said Brossoit, "because I don’t want to get discouraged if he leaves me out. Whether I’m good enough to play in the NHL or not, it’s totally up to them — whether they want me to develop more or I’m ready. It’s in their hands. I’m just going to play at my best." It's understandable why Feaster wouldn't include Brossoit as one of the goaltender's in the running. He probably doesn't want to put too much pressure on the 20-year-old prospect. Brossoit doesn't have any minor league experience and it's extremely rare for a goaltender to go from a Canadian junior league straight to the number one gig with an NHL squad.

Calgary and goaltending prospect Laurent Brossoit have agreed to a three-year, entry level contract.

The Calgary Flames are thrilled with goaltender Laurent Brossoit despite his getting cut from the Team Canada U20 squad last week.

Brossoit was outstanding during last week's camp, allowing only two goals in three scrimmages but it wasn't enough as he was the one goalie cut from the team. "When I talked to him Saturday, as an organization, we were very very pleased with what he did, what he showed, and how he played at this camp," Calgary GM Jay Feaster said. "And we were very, very pleased with what he did at (November's) Subway Series (against the Russians). I don't fault him in any way. I think he should leave there with his head held very high. As an organization, we couldn't have been more proud of what he's accomplished." Brossoit struggled in the summer in a series against the Russians and everything was taken into account when picking the team, rather than the last week. Brossoit was selected in the sixth round of the 2011 Draft but his stock has risen steadily ever since and he is definitely on the Flames radar as a possible NHLer of the future.

Laurent Brossoit is on Team Canada's preliminary roster for the 2013 World Junior Championship.

Brossoit will be competing with for three goaltending spots with OHLers Malcom Subban, Jake Paterson, and Jordan Binnington. "I need to go in there and do the same thing as I did at the Super Series - not try too hard," Brossoit said. "I need to focus on the little things rather than trying to make big saves. I know they will come if I play my game and focus on the small things." Brossoit has a 12-4-5 record, 2.73 GAA, and .901 save percentage in 21 WHL games with the Calgary Hitmen this season. The Flames took him in the sixth round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

Brossoit has also been very solid this season, sporting a 12-4-5 record.

Flames prospect Laurent Brossoit is hoping to represent Canada in the next World Junior Championship.

Brossoit went to Calgary on Thursday to participate in Hockey Canada's four-day goaltending camp. "(Representing Canada) is obviously a huge priority of mine. It’s been a dream of mine, and I want to make sure that I make it," Brossoit said. "It’s my priority for the summer, but once the season gets going in the fall, I want to make sure I do well, because that’s a huge part of the decision that they’ll make, whether or not I’m hot at the start of the season. So I don’t want to look too far ahead." Brossoit had a 2.47 GAA and .914 save percentage in 61 WHL games this season.
