Golden Knights' Laurent Brossoit: Will undergo offseason surgery

Brossoit (undisclosed) will need surgery during the offseason, coach Pete DeBoer told reporters Tuesday, per Jesse Granger of The Athletic. While the coach refused to provide any specifics regarding Brossoit's undisclosed injury, the fact that he will need to undergo a procedure certainly should raise some concerns for fantasy players. Even if the 29-year-old netminder is cleared in time for training camp, he could face a challenge for the No. 2 spot from Logan Thompson.

Golden Knights' Laurent Brossoit: Lands on injured reserve

Brossoit (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Schoen didn't specify if this was a long-term injured reserve move or not, but the Golden Knights need to find cap relief to activate Mark Stone (back). With Brossoit having already missed 11 games over 26 days, he's met the requirements to be activated from LTIR whenever healthy. The 29-year-old goalie has already been ruled out through Saturday due to his absence from the Golden Knights' road trip.

Golden Knights' Laurent Brossoit: Return timeline extends

Brossoit (undisclosed) will not be a part of Vegas' upcoming road trip, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports. Brossoit will remain absent from the Golden Knights' lineup for at least three more games, and likely for the foreseeable future with an undisclosed injury. The 29-year-old goalie has not played since March 15, when he posted an abysmal save percentage of .692, surrendering four goals in only 13 shot attempts. Despite the sub-900 save percentage on the year (.895), Brossoit has still orchestrated an overall record of 10-9-3. Expect Vegas to lean heavily on Robin Lehner to primarily guard the net for the time being.

Golden Knights' Laurent Brossoit: Gets hook in Winnipeg

Brossoit allowed four goals on 13 shots before being pulled in the second period of Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Jets. Logan Thompson was hardly any better, allowing three goals on 10 shots after replacing Brossoit, but Brossoit was saddled with the loss. With a 1-6-1 record over the past month, Brossoit has struggled at the worst time for a Vegas team that's locked in a tight playoff race. Robin Lehner (lower body) can't be back soon enough.
