Despite the score reading 5-1 in favor of the Winnipeg Jets, Laurent Brossoit actually made 15 saves on all 15 shots that he faced. Brossoit had to leave the game for 69 seconds of game play due to an equipment issue. Unfortunately for both Brossoit and Connor Hellebuyck who came in for that short period of time, the Red Wings were able to get one by Hellebuyck. The goal on Hellebuyck meant that Brossoit would not get credit for a shutout.
Laurent Brossoit has been solid when called upon for the Winnipeg Jets. Look for him to get starts when the team finds themselves in back to back situations, or when Connor Hellebuyck simply needs a break. With the way the Winnipeg Jets are playing right now, Brossoit can be a useful spot start for your team when he gets in the net.
Laurent Brossoit was in goal for the Winnipeg Jets 5-4 comeback win on Friday night against the New Jersey Devils. Jets coach Paul Maurice turned back to Brossoit for a second start in a row when the Jets dropped a 4-1 decision to the New York Islanders on Sunday night.
Perhaps it is a bit of an attempt by Jets coach Paul Maurice to send a message to his #1 net-minder Connor Hellebuyck that he simply needs to be better, or simply a reward for Laurent Brossoit after playing well and helping the Jets earn their first win of the season. Either way this situation is one that should be monitored closely, as it seems Connor Hellebuyck's #1 job could be challenged more this year. Brossoit could be a serviceable streaming option if he continues to get more starts.

Brossoit has played well enough to take over the number one spot for the Jets. He is now 12-5-2 with a 2.45 GAA and a .929 SV% on the season.
