Brossoit gave up seven goals on 28 shots in a 7-2 loss to Winnipeg on Sunday.
Making his third start of the season, Brossoit was locked in a 1-1 tie through 20 minutes before yielding three goals in each of the final two periods. He was hung out to dry on a good number of Pittsburgh's seven goals, but Brossoit has now given up four, four and seven goals in his three starts in 2019-20. He'll need to turn it around in a hurry or Winnipeg may be forced to look elsewhere for Connor Hellebuyck's backup.
Brossoit will be in goal Sunday when the Jets take on the Penguins, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.
Brossoit will start the second half of Winnipeg's weekend back-to-back, a home contest against Sidney Crosby and the Penguins. The Jets' backup is 1-1-0 in the early going of 2019-20 but has given up four goals in both starts. Last season, Brossoit went 13-6-2 in 21 appearances and figures to see a similar workload this year.
Brossoit allowed four goals on 33 shots in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Islanders.
Brossoit got away with allowing four goals in his last appearance, earning a shootout win, but he's on the hook for the loss this time as the Jets' offense didn't bail him out. Connor Hellebuyck will probably start the last game of the road trip in Pittsburgh on Tuesday.
Brossoit will tend the twine for Sunday's road clash with the Islanders, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.
Despite giving up four goals on 39 shots in Friday's matchup with the Devils, Brossoit will be back in action instead of starter Connor Hellebuyck. The 27-year-old Brossoit played in 21 games last year and could be in line for the more minutes if Hellebuyck struggles at the onset.
Brossoit turned aside 35 of 39 shots, and three of four shootout attempts, in Friday's 5-4 win over the Devils.
New Jersey jumped out to a 4-0 lead midway through the second period, but Brossoit shook off his early struggles and slammed the door on the Devils in the third to give the Jets a chance to mount a comeback. Connor Hellebuyck has played at least 63 games in each of the last two seasons, so Brossoit isn't likely to see a lot of work this year as Winnipeg's No. 2, but he was at least able to cash in on his first opportunity.
