With Laurent Brossoit settled back in with the Winnipeg Jets and set to face the team he won the Stanley Cup with last season, the Vegas Golden Knights, on Thursday it felt like the perfect time to go back to him for another Pro Reads video breakdown.

Brossoit sat down with InGoal shortly after his day with the Cup to review saves from his last season in Las Vegas, and you can find his first two entries in the archives (or links below).


This time Brossoit is facing a broken play rush chance against the Minnesota Wild, and while we normally like to give you some freeze frames and ask you to identify the primary threats and how you would play it, the footage on this one don’t do a great job of showing all the threats on one screen, so instead we’ll get you to watch the entire save – and replay – first.

Before we do, however, a quick thought from Brossoit in advance on how he handled it.

“There’s parts of it that I liked and parts I didn’t like,” Brossoit said before we hit record.

That he still wanted to break down this save was yet another example of why we always enjoy our time with Brossoit, who understands goalies can and need to learn from mistakes as much as successes. Keep that in mind as you analyze how he handles this situation.

At what point did you identify the back-side threat as the most dangerous option?

Watching the replay from behind the net, was the middle drive player a consideration?

We already know Brossoit didn’t love how he handled this. Can you see what parts might irk him? Was it positioning; how he moved? Watch again to see if you can find a couple things.
