Laurent Brossoit placed on waivers
The Vegas Golden Knights had a roster crisis, as Laurent Brossoit he was getting closer to returning from injury. The team had two goalkeepers… Logan Thompson i Hill of Adin – Playing excellent hockey, with only the former exempt from waivers. Instead of moving one of them, today they decided to take a chance on Brossoit, placing him on waivers. according to Chris Johnston of NorthStar Bets.
Brossoit, 29, is returning from hip surgery and has played two games for the Henderson Silver Knights on a conditional loan. His placement on waivers today indicates he is healthy enough to be activated and suggests he will return to Henderson if he does.
It won’t just be the injury that makes teams hesitant to claim Brossoit. He’s making $2.325 million this season in the final year of his deal and was brutal in conditioning games, allowing nine goals on 39 shots. For someone to invest in him now would mean keeping him on the NHL roster. Even last season didn’t go well, with Brossoit hitting .895 in 24 games for Las Vegas.
He will most likely end up rebuilding his game in the minor leagues and waiting for another chance with the Golden Knights. Thompson and Hill are anything but proven at this point, so even if they play well, there’s no guarantee that will continue. Having a veteran option like Brossoit would be ideal for a club like Vegas that once again has its eyes on the Stanley Cup.
