CALGARY, Alberta -- The Calgary Flames have signed goaltender Laurent Brossoit to an three-year contract.
Brossoit was voted the CHL goaltender of the week on Tuesday after helping the Edmonton Oil Kings reach the second round of the Western Hockey League playoffs.
He finished the WHL regular season third in goals-against average (2.25), sixth in save percentage (.917) and seventh in wins (33) and shutouts (five).
Brossoit was selected by the Flames in the sixth round, 164th overall, of the 2011 NHL draft.
