Laurent Brossoit won’t be stopping pucks in Edmonton on a full-time basis for a while yet, but just being back for a cup of coffee is enough to get his pulse racing.

“Once I walked into the rink there were memories flashing through,” said the OKC Barons goalie, who’ll be relieving Ben Scrivens until the Oilers get Viktor Fasth back from his neck injury. “I just had such a great time here in my three years with the Oil Kings. I couldn’t be happier being a part of this organization, still.”

When Brossoit became Calgary Flames property at the 2011 draft, he thought any chance of ever playing in Edmonton again were dead.

“Considering they’ve only had one trade in history between those two teams. But when it settled in, I was pretty happy. I know a lot of people here, have a lot of family and friends. The organization knows me and knows what I can bring to the team.”
