LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Vegas Golden Knights have signed a new backup goaltender a day after trading franchise-favorite and Vezina Trophy-winner Marc-Andre Fleury.

Laurent Brossoit, 28, from the Winnipeg Jets was an unrestricted free agent this offseason. He played 54 games over the past three seasons with the Jets, recording a .913 save percentage and 2.75 goals per game.

It appears he will serve as the backup to Robin Lehner next season.
