Laurent Brossoit makes a save while playing for the Calgary Flames at the Young Stars competition in Penticton last month. The goaltender from Cloverdale will start his first professional season with the Alaska Aces of the East Coast Hockey League.

Laurent Brossoit assigned to ECHL’s Alaska Aces

The Cloverdale native will join the East Coast league team in Anchorage. Brossoit was drafted by Calgary in the 2011 NHL Draft.

Two weeks after he was assigned to the Abbotsford Heat, goaltender Laurent Brossoit is on the move again.

The Cloverdale native and Calgary Flames prospect was among seven players assigned Wednesday to the Alaska Aces, the East Coast Hockey League team that is a developmental affiliate of the American Hockey League’s Heat.

Brossoit played the last 30 minutes of the Heat’s lone exhibition game Sept. 22 in Abbotsford against the Utica Comets, allowing one goal on seven shots.

The Aces begin their regular season Oct. 18-19 with home game against the San Francisco Bulls in Anchorage.

The Heat will still have a product of the Cloverdale Minor Hockey Association in their lineup when they open their season tomorrow (Friday) in Cleveland against the Lake Erie Monsters.

Defenceman Tyler Wotherspoon was assigned to the Heat by the Flames last week.

Wotherspoon and Brossoit were drafted by the Flames in the 2011 National Hockey League Entry Draft.
