Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff can strike one name off his list as he got RFA goalie Laurent Brossoit inked to a one-year deal with an AAV of $1,225,000.00. That’s a nice jump in pay for the goalie who made $650,000.00 last season but considering how well he played for the Jets it was well deserved. In 21 games he finished with a 13-6-2 record (2.52 GAA, .925 save % and a goals saved above average of 9.77).
This ensures that the Jets have a solid goalie tandem of Connor Hellebuyck and Laurent Brossoit and maintains the organizational goaltending depth.
Brossoit will speak this evening about his new contract with Winnipeg. Be sure to check back for more from the re-signed Jets goalie.
On the process of getting the contract done. On not testing the waters. On the difference a year makes. On frustration with the injury. His relationship with Wade Flaherty. Growth in his relationship with Connor Hellebuyck. How does he maintain his chip/aggression heading into next season? Will he change his summer routine or business as usual in terms of his prep? On learning/feeding off his and Hellebuyck’s relationship.
I also appear on the Illegal Curve Hockey Show every Saturday on TSN 1290 Winnipeg starting at 9 am.
And I occasionally jump in the play-by-play booth at Bell MTS Place to provide colour analysis during Manitoba Moose games.
