Brossoit agreed to terms on a one-year, $1.225 million contract with the Jets on Saturday. Brossoit appeared in 21 games as Connor Hellebuyck's backup this season, compiling a 13-6-2 record while posting a 2.52 GAA and .925 save percentage. The 26-year-old will return as Hellebuyck's backup in 2019-20, and should once again make 20-to-25 starts.
Brossoit (leg) is expected to serve as the backup versus St. Louis on Friday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Brossoit's return was already on tap when Winnipeg sent Eric Comrie back to the minors. The 25-year-old will slot in as the No. 2 behind Connor Hellebuyck and shouldn't be expected to get into a game anytime soon.
Head coach Paul Maurice said Monday that he doesn't expect Brossoit (leg) to suit up in game action before the regular season ends, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. The Jets have named Connor Hellebuyck the starter for Mondays's game against the Blackhawks, and it sounds like Eric Comrie could draw a start in the near future with a playoff spot locked up. With Brossoit likely done for the season, he will finish with a 13-6-2 record to go along with a 2.52 GAA and .925 save percentage in 19 starts and 21 total appearances.
Brossoit (leg) will miss at least two more games, according to Jets coach Paul Maurice in a broadcast by JetsTV. The Jets have named Connor Hellebuyck the starter for Saturday's game against the Canadiens, and it sounds like it'll either be Hellebuyck or Eric Comrie in the road goal versus the Blackhawks on Monday. There are now a maximum of three games for Brossoit to potentially drawn into by the time the regular season comes to a close. His record is at 13-6-2 with a 2.52 GAA and .925 save percentage through 19 starts and 21 total appearances.
Brossoit (leg) won't be in the lineup for Monday's clash with Dallas, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports. Brossoit's absence will likely force coach Paul Maurice to rely heavily on starter Connor Hellebuyck down the stretch. If the 25-year-old Brossoit was healthy, he may have snagged a few year-end starts in order to keep the No. 1 fresh for a postseason run. For now, Eric Comrie will serve as the backup until Brossoit is given the green light to return.
