Putting Laurent Brossoit in net didn't backfire for the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday, as they beat the lowly Colorado Avalanche 4-1.
Brossoit won his third game as an NHL goalie, stopping 24 out of 25 SOG. He now has back-to-back wins against the Avalanche, as he also grabbed a W in relief duty on March 23. There's a chance that Brossoit could make enough of an impression to be the No. 2 guy next season. Mar 26 - 12:50 AM

Laurent Brossoit's challenge has been staying ready while almost never getting a start.

Brossoit has made just two starts with Edmonton in 2016-17 with the last one coming on Feb. 21. "It’s been a test of my patience. It’s patience training. I’m learning to adapt to it for sure," said Brossoit. "I want to play as much as possible, but circumstances like this where we haven’t made playoffs for so long and Cam’s been a huge part and the reason we’re in a playoff spot with a bit of a cushion. It makes sense for them to ride the hot hand. I understand. I guess I’ve been preparing for anything and the games I’ll get in will be games where I’m coming in, in relief. Obviously those aren’t the circumstances I want but I’d like to contribute any way I can." Brossoit might still get some work towards the end of the season to give Cam Talbot a little break before the playoffs.

Laurent Brossoit has received a vote of confidence from Oilers GM Peter Chiarelli.

Chiarelli expressed his confidence in Brossoit, who will remain the team's backup goaltender after Edmonton opted not to acquire a goaltender before the trade deadline. "To hear the general manager say that about me, to know they have confidence in me and have noticed the hard work that I’ve been putting in in practice is definitely a nice feeling," said Brossoit. "I tried not to think about it too much. Obviously anything can happen – they could be looking for a goalie or not – but I tried not to think about it." That said, Brossoit has been used sparingly and that isn't likely to change as the Oilers look to Cam Talbot to guide them down the stretch.
Mar 3 - 4:40 AM

Laurent Brossoit allowed three goals on 27 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

It's just the second time all season that Brossoit has played in a full game. Don't expect him to play very much, as the Oilers will continue riding starter Cam Talbot. Brossoit has a 1-1-0 record with a 2.90 goals-against-average and a .910 save percentage.
Feb 21 - 11:18 PM

Laurent Brossoit will start Tuesday night against Tampa Bay.

He won in his only other start this season back on Jan. 21 against Calgary. Brossoit has a 2.80 goals-against average and a .919 save percentage in three appearances this year. Cam Talbot will get back into the cage on Wednesday versus the Florida Panthers.

Edmonton Oilers goalie Laurent Brossoit got his first career NHL win, and it happened against the team he drafted him, as Edmonton defeated the Calgary Flames 7-3 on Saturday.

While Brossoit obviously received some hefty goal support, it was still a busy night, as he stopped 38 of 41 shots. He came into Saturday with a 0-5-1 record at this level. The 23-year-old generated respectable AHL numbers, although he actually struggled a bit this season, only managing a .908 save percentage with a 9-8-0 record for Bakersfield.
Jan 22 - 2:20 AM

The Oilers will put their faith in Laurent Brossoit to defend the crease against the Flames on Saturday.

The 23-year-old is 0-5-1 with 20 goals against at the big league level. Considering his 9-8 record with a .908 save percentage and a 2.62 GAA in 21 games for AHL Bakersfield, you may wish to find a more favorable matchup.
Jan 21 - 2:24 PM

The Edmonton Oilers have some back-to-back sets coming up, which might result in Laurent Brossoit playing.

Brossoit was summoned on Jan. 11 to serve as the Oilers' new backup goaltender, but he hasn't made his 2016-17 NHL debut because the team leans heavily on Cam Talbot. Edmonton is set to play on Friday and Saturday though and then it has another back-to-back set on Jan. 25-26, so it shouldn't be long before Brossoit gets some work.
Jan 20 - 11:04 AM

Edmonton has recalled Laurent Brossoit from the minors.

Brossoit has posted a 9-8-3 record with a 2.67 goals-against average and a .908 save percentage in the AHL this season. He will be Cam Talbot's understudy after the Oilers sent down Jonas Gustavsson in a corresponding move.
Jan 11 - 6:22 PM

Laurent Brossoit has been sent to the minors.

Brossoit was summoned on Oct. 17 because Jonas Gustavsson was dealing with an upper-body injury. With that in mind, his demotion likely indicates that Gustavsson is healthy.

Edmonton has summoned Laurent Brossoit from the minors.

Mon, Oct 3, 2016 12:30:00 AM

Laurent Brossoit is expected to challenge for the backup job during training camp.

Edmonton might bring in a goalie with NHL experience to compete with him for that role, but it sounds like Brossoit will at least have a shot at winning the job. He had a 3.61 GAA and .873 save percentage in five games with Edmonton last season. At the AHL level he posted a 2.66 GAA and .920 save percentage in 31 contests.
