Laurent Brossoit of the Alaska Aces makes a save during a shutout win over the Bakersfield Condors in October. He was in net for the Condors Wednesday

Brossoit tied ECHL record

Cloverdale goalie records third consecutive shutout

It took Laurent Brossoit just three starts to tie an East Coast Hockey League (ECHL) record.

The netminder from Cloverdale earned his third consecutive shutout Wednesday night, making 28 saves to backstop the Bakersfield Condors to a 4-0 win over the Idaho Steelheads Wednesday night before 3,090 fans in Boise, Idaho.

After two shutouts in a pair of  previous starts with the Alaska Aces in October, the 20 year-old has tied the ECHL record with three straight shutouts, a standard shared with six other net minders.

Brossoit was assigned to the Condors earlier in the day by the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers, after playing seven games with the Oklahoma City Oil Barons where he posted a 3.53 goals against average in seven games played.

Brossoit was drafted by the Calgary Flames in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, and after two games with the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League, he was sent to the Alaska Aces of the ECHL. He played the final six minutes in his ECHL debut, and did not give up a goal. In his two stars with the Aces, he posted a pair of shutout wins before his NHL rights were traded to the Oilers in early November. Ironically, both shutouts with Alaska were against Bakersfield.

His shutout streak is now at 186:21, 50 minutes shy of the ECHL record of 236:03.
