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

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
