Oilers recall Brossoit on emergency basis after Fasth injures neck

EDMONTON - Goaltender Laurent Brossoit was recalled by the Edmonton Oilers on an emergency basis on Monday after Viktor Fasth was injured.

Fasth was hurt Monday morning in practice with a possible sprained neck.

Fasth has a 2-1-1 record with the Oilers with a 2.76 goals-against average and an .899 save percentage. He was traded from Anaheim to Edmonton on March 4.

Before the trade, Fasth had a 2-2-1 record with the Ducks with a 2.95 GAA and an .885 save percentage.

The 21-year-old Brossoit had been assigned to the Bakersfield Condors of the ECHL after the Oilers franchise acquired him from the Calgary Flames in a trade on Nov. 8. He had been promoted to the American Hockey League's Oklahoma City Barons before the recall to Edmonton.

Brossoit has a 2.20 GAA, a .920 save percentage and a 19-9-2 record with Bakersfield. He went 2-0-0 with the Alaska Aces prior to the trade. He leads the ECHL in shutouts with seven.

Brossoit has played eight games with Oklahoma City this season, posting a 3.60 GAA and .888 save percentage.

Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
