Brossoit was sent down to Bakersfield of the AHL on Monday. Brossoit played in a handful of games for Edmonton this season, posting a 3.61 GAA and .873 save percentage. His chances of ever becoming a starting net minder are remote but it's hard to judge him all that harshly when you consider the defense playing in front of him.
Brossoit gave up five goals on 32 shots in Saturday's loss to the Kings. It wasn't a good night for Brossoit, who was victimized by the Kings' Milan Lucic, Tyler Toffoli and Jeff Carter line. The 23-year-old goaltender is yet to win a game this season, posting a 0-4-1 record with a lackluster .873 save percentage. He holds very little fantasy value in the final stretch of the season.
Brossoit will be between the pipes in Saturday's road game against the Kings. Brossoit hasn't played well in limited action this season, compiling an 0-3-1 record with an ugly 3.24 GAA and .882 save percentage in four appearances. The 23-year-old netminder will look to pick up his first win of the season Saturday in a surprisingly favorable matchup with a Kings team averaging just 2.50 goals per game at home this season, 25th in the NHL.
Brossoit gave up three goals on 25 shots in Sunday's loss to the Avalanche. Cam Talbot had been seeing all the action of late, but the former Ranger was given a rest Sunday. Brossoit played fine in the loss, but is still searching for his first NHL win in five career NHL starts. Considering the 22-year-old owns a .822 save percentage and the Oilers are at the bottom of the standings, Brossoit holds very little fantasy value right now.
Brossoit will start Sunday's game against Colorado. Brossoit will get the nod Sunday, while giving Cam Talbot -- who has logged back-to-back wins -- a breather. Brossoit will square off against Calvin Pickard on Sunday, still looking for his first NHL win in his fifth career start for the Oilers.
