Laurent Brossoit has been returned to the minors.

Brossoit turned aside an incredible 49 of 51 shots in his NHL debut on Thursday, but he'll nevertheless be demoted because Viktor Fasth (knee) is ready to return. Fasth might leave the Oilers as an unrestricted free agent this summer though, which might create an opening for Brossoit to compete for in Edmonton's training camp.

Edmonton Oilers coach Todd Nelson was naturally very impressed by Laurent Brossoit's efforts in his NHL debut.

Brossoit turned aside 49 of 51 shots, but suffered a 3-1 loss to San Jose. "He was outstanding," said Nelson. "But I was really disappointed with the lack of support in front of him. We had way too many passengers tonight. That was one of the best performances I've seen all year." With goaltender Viktor Fasth set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, Brossoit might be given an opportunity to compete for a roster spot with Edmonton during next season's training camp.

Laurent Brossoit made 49 saves but still fell to the Sharks 3-1 during his NHL debut on Thursday night.

Brossoit was absolutely outstanding as he was welcomed to the NHL by the Sharks' offensive onslaught, and the Oilers' general disarray. As for the goals against, his first ever went to Patrick Marleau, and will be the goalie Bryan Lerg beat for his first ever NHL goal. A fine showing by the 22 year old rookie Brossoit any which way you slice it.

Laurent Brossoit will get the start in Thursday's game against the San Jose Sharks.

The 22-year-old has bounced between the AHL and ECHL since turning pro but he has yet to play in an NHL game. He was originally drafted by Calgary in the sixth round of the 2012 draft but he was traded to Edmonton as part of a deal that saw Ladislav Smid to go the Flames. With the Oilers out of the playoff picture, it's nice to see that they are giving some young players the opportunity to prove themselves.

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.

Laurent Brossoit has excelled in the ECHL playoffs.

More specifically, Brossoit has a 1.75 GAA and .934 save percentage in 10 postseason contests. The 21-year-old netminder is likely to start the 2014-15 campaign with the AHL Oklahoma City Barons.

Laurent Brossoit tied the ECHL record for most shutouts in a season with eight.

Brossoit tied the mark on Friday. He was sent down from the Oilers earlier this week as he had replaced Viktor Fasth who suffered a neck injury. Brossoit never got into an NHL game during his recent callup but he has certainly improved his stock with his play this season.

The Edmonton Oilers have returned Laurent Brossoit to the minors.

The netminder was recalled on March 25 when Viktor Fasth suffered a neck injury but was returned when Fasth was well enough to return. Brossoit was 2-5 for Oklahoma City this season but has spent most of the year in the ECHL.

The Edmonton Oilers have called up Laurent Brossoit.

Viktor Fasth suffered a neck injury during Monday's practice, which prompted this move. Brossoit will serve as Ben Scrivens' understudy if Fasth ends up missing any playing time.

The Edmonton Oilers have acquired Laurent Brossoit from the Calgary Flames.

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.

He concluded the WHL campaign third in goals-against average (2.25), sixth in save percentage (.917) while posting 33 wins and five shutouts. The Flames selected Brossoit in the sixth round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

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.
