According to the latest rumors, the Toronto Maple Leafs are looking to sign Winnipeg Jets goaltender Laurent Brossoit in free agency this summer.

Multiple sources are now reporting that the Leafs are interested in the Jets backup. Among them is James Mirtle of the Athletic, a highly reputable source. He believes that the team is looking to create a tandem next season with Joseph Woll and Laurent Brossoit splitting the goaltending duties.

Brossoit has been among the best goaltenders in the league despite his limited usage in recent seasons. He's never played more than a backup role, but he was very, very good in that role for the Jets this season, putting up a .927 save percentage and a 15-5-5 record over 23 starts with the team.

he's probably my favourite value target in net right now - among goalies with 10+ games played, he finished 3rd in the NHL with a .927 save percentage and 5th in GSAx
Brossoit has the potential to be a big upgrade over Ilya Samsonov if the Leafs are able to bring him in. That would be a huge boost to the team next season, potentially changing their fate in the playoffs. Be sure to stay tuned to see whether or not the Leafs sign him.
