April 2013 - Brossoit finished the 2012-13 regular season campaign strong with a 33-8-6 record, finishing with 0.917 SV% and top three in GAA with 2.25 with the Edmonton Oil Kings. The Oil Kings are currently in the second round of the playoffs facing the Medicine Hat Tigers, after beating the Kootenay Ice 4-1 in the series. The large, athletic netminder signed an entry level contract with Calgary earlier in the month. He is not close to NHL ready, but expect him to head to the AHL net year. With Kiprusoff supposedly retiring at the end of the year, there is room to move up in the Calgary organization faster than in years past. - Kevin Won
December 2012 - Laurent Broissoit was one of four goaltenders invited to take part in Canada's National Junior Selection camp for the 2013 World Junior Championships in Ufa, Russia. Brendan Ross
June 2012 – Brossoit made himself a household name this year with his outstanding play in the WHL playoffs. He led the Edmonton Oil Kings to the Memorial Cup. He posted a 42-13-2-3 record with a 2.47 GAA and a 0.914 SV%. Brossoit was a workhorse this year, playing in 61 regular season games, 20 more playoff games, and four more in the Memorial Cup. This experience should help him in the long run. He has good size and is technically sound. He will have to work on challenging shooters more and his angles. He should spend another year in the WHL and should contend for a spot on Team Canada’s World Junior squad.
Fantasy Outlook: B-
Has a huge ceiling, with more seasoning he could become a blue-chip prospect.
