The Winnipeg Jets hav re-signed back up goalie Laurent Brossoit to a one year, $1 225 000 contract.
This is a good move for the Jets as Brossoit was a solid back up for Connor Hellebuyck last year and was able to provide him with adequate rest, something that has not happened before.
Brossoit played in 21 games last season with a GAA of 2.52 and a save percentage of 0.925. Those are excellent stats for a back up and this is good money spent by the team after a “show me” contract last year. We could see Brossoit’s save percentage fall as he has a 0.881 save percentage short handed and we saw a fall off in Hellebuyck’s numbers in the same area this season.
