ANCHORAGE, AK -- The Alaska Aces announced in conjunction with the ECHL that Aces goaltender Laurent Brossoit has been named CCM ECHL Goaltender of the Week for the week of Oct. 28-Nov. 2.
Brossoit, 20, went 2-0-0 with two shutouts last week, helping guide the Aces to a three-game sweep of Bakersfield as the club improved to 7-1-0 on the season.
Brossoit made his Aces’ debut late in a 6-3 win last Friday, stopping all eight shots he faced in six minutes of action. In his first start on Saturday, he turned aside all 16 shots he faced in a 5-0 win and on Sunday, made 16 more saves in a 4-0 victory.
He joins J.P. Lamoureux (2009 Kelly Cup Playoffs vs. Utah) as the only two Aces goaltenders to record back-to-back shutouts in ECHL play and is the first goaltender in Aces history to accomplish the feat in the ECHL regular season.
A native of Surrey, British Columbia, Brossoit made his pro debut earlier this season with Abbotsford of the American Hockey League.
