Laurent Brossoit of the Bakersfield Condors was named ECHL Goaltender of the Week for the week of Dec. 23-29.

Brossoit also won the award for the week ending Nov. 3 while with Alaska, when he shut out the Condors twice.

The 20-year-old went 2-0-0 with one shutout, a 1.50 goals-against average and a save percentage of .935 last week.

Brossoit made 20 saves in the Condors' 4-3 win against Las Vegas last week and followed that up with his league-leading fourth shutout of the season with 23 saves in a 3-0 victory over Idaho on Sunday.

Brossoit, of Surrey, British Columbia, has five shutouts in seven starts split between Alaska and Bakersfield. Overall in eight appearances, he is 6-1-0 with a 0.70 goals-against average and a save percentage of .967.

Selected by the Calgary Flames in the sixth round of the 2011 NHL Draft, Brossoit was traded by the Flames to the Edmonton Oilers on Nov. 8, and he has seen action in nine AHL games this season with Abbotsford and Oklahoma City.

"It was definitely an adjustment for me," Brossoit said of playing for multiple teams this season. "This is the first time I've ever moved from one team within a season let alone four different teams. It definitely was a different year for me so far but I feel like I'm adjusting positively."

Earlier in the day, the Jam acquired guard JamesOn Curry from the Springfield Armor in exchange for Bakersfield's 3rd round pick in the 2014 NBA D-League Draft.

Curry (6-4, 200, Oklahoma State) has played in four seasons with Springfield and was averaging 7.3 points and 3.7 assists in 27.3 minutes this season.
