RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Brossoit is still viewed as the Oilers' top goaltending prospect left in the minors, but the organization's offseason acquisition of Cam Talbot suggests the team has already made a decision on its long-term future in goal. Still just 22 years old, Brossoit has time to change the organizational goaltending hierarchy, but at least for 2015-16, he'll stick at AHL Bakersfield barring an injury to Talbot or backup Anders Nilsson.
Brossoit will either start the season in the ECHL or roll as the backup to Richard Bachman in the AHL. His game needs work, so he'll spend a few seasons in the minors, honing his craft.
