Cloverdale Minor Hockey alum Laurent Brossoit has been assigned to the Abbotsford Heat by the National Hockey League’s Calgary Flames.

Brossoit was among 19 players assigned to their American Hockey League affiliate in the Fraser Valley, and is one of two goalies currently with the Heat.

“To have the chance to play in your backyard is a pretty cool feeling,” Brossoit said while playing for the Flames at the Young Stars prospects tournament earlier this month in Penticton. “I can even live at home (Cloverdale), I’m so close.”

Brossoit, 20, spent the last three seasons with the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League, winning one championship and losing in the finals last year.

Another Cloverdale native, Tyler Wotherspoon, is still on the Flames preseason roster.

Also 20, he is one of 13 defenceman vying for a position on the team.
