The Calgary Flames selected former Cowichan Valley Capitals’ goalie Laurent Brossoit in the sixth round — 164th overall — during Saturday’s National Hockey League entry draft in Minneapolis.
Brossoit played for the Caps in the B.C. Hockey League during the 2009-10 season, getting into 21 games behind starter Alexandre Peck and compiling a 10-8 record with a goals against average of 3.66.
Brossoit, who was born in Port Alberni but calls Surrey home, also went to the World Under 17 Hockey Challenge during his time with the Caps. He posted two wins during the tournament in Timmins, Ontario for Team Canada (Pacific).
Brossoit, six-foot-three and 202 pounds, went on to play for the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League, leading him to the draft.
