The Edmonton Oilers have recalled goaltender Laurent Brossoit from the American Hockey League’s Oklahoma City Barons on an emergency recall basis, Oilers General Manager Craig MacTavish announced today. In a separate transaction, the Oklahoma City Barons recalled goaltender Ty Rimmer from loan from the CHL’s Quad City Mallards, Barons General Manager Bill Scott announced.

Brossoit, 21, has split time this season between the Oklahoma City Barons and Bakersfield Condors (ECHL), since being acquired from the Calgary Flames on November 8th.

The Surrey, British Columbia native has appeared in 30 games in the ECHL, posting a 21-9-2-0 record, a 2.06 goals against average, a .924 save percentage and a league leading seven shutouts.

The 6’3”, 200-pound goaltender has appeared in eight games with the Barons, posting a 2-5-0 record, including a 3.60 goals against average and a .888 save percentage.

Brossoit spent four seasons with the Western Hockey League’s Edmonton Oil Kings, helping the Oil Kings advance to the WHL finals in back-to-back seasons (2011-12, 2012-13) as well as winning the Ed Chynoweth Cup in 2012, earning a berth to the Memorial Cup.

Rimmer has played in three games for the Barons this season with a 1-0-1-0 record and a 2.66 goals against average. Rimmer made 93 saves on 100 shots for a .930 save percentage in 158 minutes played previously for the Barons.

He has an 18-14-5 record with the Mallards this season. In his 39 games played, he has a 2.84 goals against and .906 save percentage. He was recently named to the CHL all-rookie team.

Oklahoma City returns home Tuesday evening to host the San Antonio Rampage at 7 p.m. CT.
