Flames sign goaltender Laurent Brossoit to three-year entry-level contract

CALGARY - The Calgary Flames have signed goaltender Laurent Brossoit to an three-year entry-level contract.

Brossoit was named the CHL goaltender of the week on Tuesday after helping the Edmonton Oil Kings reach the second round of the Western Hockey League playoffs.

He posted a 4-1 record with two shutouts, a goals-against average of 0.76 and save percentage of .968 as the Oil Kings beat the Kootenay Ice in five games in the first round.

The native of Surrey, B.C., finished the WHL regular season third in goals-against average (2.25), sixth in save percentage (.917) and seventh in wins (33) and shutouts (five).

He was selected by the Flames in the sixth round, 164th overall, of the 2011 NHL draft.

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
