Appears to be running in place at times and needs to become more consistent to stay in favour with his team. Has had very good results in the AHL but hasn’t been able to replicate that in the NHL yet.

Observations

July 2018 – The Winnipeg Jets have signed Brossoit to a one-year contract.  Jokke Nevalainen

June 2018 – With the Oilers trading for seasoned NHL backup Al Montoya in January, it became abundantly clear that the team had decided that Brossoit and his inconsistencies were not ready for the role of Talbot’s back up yet.  Brossoit now finds himself in a tough position as he is 25-years-old and set to become a free agent on July 1st. To make matters worse for his situation, the Oilers went out and signed highly sought after KHL goaltender Mikko Koskinen on May 1st and Al Montoya still has one year left on his contract. With Koskinen getting 2.5 million dollars for this season, it’s obvious that the backup position is his to lose going into training camp. This likely means that Brossoit, if he receives a contract from Edmonton, will again be assigned to the Bakersfield Condors of the AHL where he has had his fair share of inconsistencies. In the four years that Brossoit has played in the AHL, his best statistical campaigns were actually the first two. He has shown slow improvement in some areas but overall it looks as though he is running in place developmentally at times. With all this being said, Brossoit has potential but he needs to start realizing that potential before the Oilers ultimately move on from him. Between him, Koskinen and Montoya all vying for a spot on the big club, there’s a lot of question marks for the Oilers in net going into this season and Brossoit could be worth a final round pick in hopes that he finally puts it all together.

February 2017 – After the signing of Jonas Gustavsson, it was seen that Brossoit would spend the year in the AHL starting a handful of games. Going 9-8-0 with Condors this season posting a 2.67 GAA and a .908 save percentage. Brossoit has split the season with upcoming goaltending prospect, Nick Ellis. After a struggling Gustavsson got sent down, the Oilers decided to call up Brossoit. In his first start this season, Brossoit posted a 38 save performance in a 7-3 win against the Calgary Flames earning his fist career win. Brossoit also appeared in a 5-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild, where Cam Talbot got pulled after allowing four goals on 19 shots. Brossoit finished that game with 15 saves allowing only one goal. Brossoit is 1-0-0 with a 2.75 GAA and a surprising .930 save percentage. He is expected to back up Talbot for the rest of the year. Brossoit is still viewed as the goalie of the future for this young Edmonton team. Spencer Pomoty

December 2015 – Brossoit is off to a magnificent start in Bakersfield this season, posting a .931 save percentage, eight wins and three shutouts in 13 games so far. He has been the unquestioned starter since the beginning of the year and continues to iron out consistency issues, rarely letting in a bad goal. Brossoit has far outplayed former Oilers starter Ben Scrivens and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him get called up if one of the Oilers’ goalies go down with an injury. Tyler Thomson

May 2015 – After capping off his impressive rookie AHL season with 28 wins and a .918 save percentage, Brossoit was recalled and started for his first NHL appearance against San Jose. He made 49 saves in a losing effort but the performance showed Oilers faithful that he has the potential to be their goaltender of the future. It is unclear how early he could make an impact with Ben Scrivens still under contract and rumours of the Oilers looking for a starter in the off-season. There is no rush with the 22-year-old and he should be Oklahoma City’s number one goaltender next season. Tyler Thomson

January 2015 – Brossoit is quietly putting together an exceptional season in Oklahoma City this year. The 21-year-old was given a full workload when Richard Bachman went down with injury in December and responded perfectly, keeping the Barons atop the Western Conference. In his first full AHL campaign, Brossoit has appeared in 20 games posting a 13-5 record with a 2.43 goals against average and .922 save percentage. With unspectacular play from Ben Scrivens and Viktor Fasth and the Oilers season fading, Brossoit will make a convincing argument for many to potentially fight for a roster spot next season. Tyler Thomson

November 2013 – Brossoit was acquired by the Oilers in a bigger deal involving Ladislav Smid, Roman Horak and Olivier Roy. The Oilers clearly targeted Brossoit, who played over three years in Edmonton as the goalie for the Oil Kings (WHL). Clearly, he was the motivation for this trade and I would submit that he now owns “Golden Boy” status. The Oilers will groom him and give him every opportunity to work his way up to the big club. His fantasy value has just taken a nice jump. Dobber

April 2013 – Brossoit finished the 2012-13 regular season campaign strong with a 33-8-6 record, finishing with 0.917 SV% and top three in GAA with 2.25 with the Edmonton Oil Kings. The Oil Kings are currently in the second round of the playoffs facing the Medicine Hat Tigers, after beating the Kootenay Ice 4-1 in the series. The large, athletic netminder signed an entry level contract with Calgary earlier in the month. He is not close to NHL ready, but expect him to head to the AHL net year. With Kiprusoff supposedly retiring at the end of the year, there is room to move up in the Calgary organization faster than in years past. Kevin Won

December 2012 – Laurent Broissoit was one of four goaltenders invited to take part in Canada’s National Junior Selection camp for the 2013 World Junior Championships in Ufa, Russia.  Brendan Ross

June 2012 – Brossoit made himself a household name this year with his outstanding play in the WHL playoffs. He led the Edmonton Oil Kings to the Memorial Cup. He posted a 42-13-2-3 record with a 2.47 GAA and a 0.914 SV%. Brossoit was a workhorse this year, playing in 61 regular season games, 20 more playoff games, and four more in the Memorial Cup. This experience should help him in the long run. He has good size and is technically sound. He will have to work on challenging shooters more and his angles. He should spend another year in the WHL and should contend for a spot on Team Canada’s World Junior squad. Zenon Herasimiuk
