from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now,

Detroit Red Wings prospect Donovan Sebrango is not going to dazzle you with his offensive flair or impress you with his point totals. But he could end up being the dependable defense-first defenseman that every successful team needs.

Sebrango has three assists in 20 games for the American League’s Grand Rapids Griffins. He’s also +6 on a Griffins teams with a few too many minus players.

What the Red Wings like is that he’s 19 and already has played 51 games in the American League. Plus, Canada selected him to play in the World Junior Championships. Red Wings prospect goalie Sebastian Cossa is also on the team. The Canadians cut the 2020 53rd pick Sebrango before last season’s tournament.

He is currently projected to play on Canada’s third pairing, maybe with Minnesota Wild first rounder Carson Lambos. Donovan Sebrango is a more well-rounded player than he was when he showed up in Grand Rapids..

continued with a list of all Detroit prospects playing in the tourney…

After learning he made Team Canada, Donovan Sebrango shared an emotional moment with mom. “She was crying as soon as I told her,” the Grand Rapids defenceman said. “She’s my rock. She’s my everything. Growing up, as a single parent, she had to be a father and a mom to me. I owe the world to her and owe her this tournament to come out on top.”

Watch at TSN.

The future is bright. Even in those short clips I think it was obvious how much better and elite Cossa really looked compared to Brochu. He might be a one year guy in the AHL his game is looking that much more polished than his peers.
