WINNIPEG - Talk about making a first impression.
Goaltender Laurent Brossoit made 38 saves, including a highlight reel glove save on a Ryan Murphy blast in the third period, to help the Winnipeg Jets to a 2-1 preseason win over the Minnesota Wild on Monday.
Brossoit, who signed a one-year contract on July 1, trains with Connor Hellebuyck at the Net 360 Camp in Kelowna, and looked every bit as comfortable as his training partner in the Jets net in the preseason opener.
"Anytime you come into preseason, especially with a new organization, it's nice to get a good win and a good feeling having getting a lot of rubber," said Brossoit. "I felt the puck a lot, so it was definitely a nice feeling to come in and make an impression like that."
