Laurent Brossoit is the new Oilers backup

Brossoit was the best goalie in tryouts for Team Canada’s World Junior 2013 team but got cut. His 2 Memorial Cup appearances for WHL’s Edmonton Oil Kings brings a championship pedigree and playing junior in Edmonton provides familiarity.

With Talbot and Brossoit in net for Edmonton, they require goaltender prospects for injury, trades, and AHL competition.
