Laurent Brossoit has been confirmed as Edmonton's starter for Sunday's game against Washington.

The Oilers will turn to the backup netminder for the second game of a back-to-back situation. Workhorse goalie Cam Talbot played Saturday afternoon against the Rangers in a 4-2 loss. This will be Brossoit's second start of the season and his fourth appearance. He has a 0-1-0 record with a 3.65 goals-against average and an .854 save percentage.

It is not clear which Edmonton goalie will get the start Sunday against the Capitals.

Cam Talbot will get the start Saturday afternoon against the Rangers and depending on the result and his work load in the contest Oiler coach Todd McLellan will decide to either go back to Talbot or to start Laurent Brossoit. Check back with us before puck drop on Sunday.

Laurent Brossoit allowed five goals on just 21 shots in Tuesday's 5-3 loss against the Hurricanes.

Brossoit was making his first start of the season, and his third appearance, but it certainly wasn't memorable. His playing time is likely to be rather sporadic unless disaster strikes Cam Talbot.

Laurent Brossoit will be between the pipes for Tuesday's game against the Hurricanes.

Brossoit hasn't started a game for the Oilers yet, but he's made two relief appearances. For what it's worth, Brossoit had a 30-save shutout against Carolina during the preseason. He owns a 2.11 goals-against-average and a .926 save percentage this season.

Laurent Brossoit earned a 30-save shutout on Wednesday.

It was a preseason game, but it will still give him a little extra confidence going into the campaign. "Any win, any good performance adds to the positive muscle memory," said Brossoit. "I felt really good. I’ve been feeling pretty good as of late on and off the ice. It’s nice that it translated in a game. It’s nice to go in there for a full-game scenario and stay focused throughout." The Oilers are expected to lean heavily on Cam Talbot this season, just as they did in 2016-17, but if Brossoit can post some strong starts in the regular season then Edmonton might feel comfortable giving Talbot a bit more time off than they otherwise would have.

Laurent Brossoit stopped 15 of 17 shots in a 5-2 win over Vancouver in the regular season finale on Sunday night.

Laurent Brossoit will be in net for Edmonton's season finale on Sunday against Vancouver.

He's allowed just nine goals through seven games, winning three and posting a .934 save percentage this season with the Oilers.
Apr 9 - 2:18 PM

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 is projected to start on Saturday.

It's just Brossoit's third start of the season and his first since Feb. 21. He has a 2.26 GAA and .928 save percentage in 2016-17.
Mar 25 - 1:40 PM

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.
Feb 21 - 2:08 PM

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.
