From Toledo To Grand Rapids And Back

11/03/2022 at 8:29am EDT

from Bob Duff of Detroit Hockey Now,

By the end of the current hockey season, Detroit Red Wings goalie prospects Sebastian Cossa and Victor Brattstrom figure to know every inch of highway between Grand Rapids and Toledo like the back of their hand.

With three goalies under contract in AHL Grand Rapids, the Red Wings are planning to rotate Cossa and Brattstrom between the Griffins and the ECHL Toledo Walleye, to ensure that both goalies get plenty of work and are staying sharp....

Cossa is 1-1 with a 3.50 GAA and .851 sae percentage for the Griffins. He’s 2-0 with a 2.50 GAA and .904 save percentage for the Walleye. Brattstrom is 1-0 with a 4.32 GAA and .891 save percentage in two games for Grand Rapids.



from Steven Ellis of The Daily Faceoff,

...these five are off to slower starts than they likely expected at this point in the season:

Considering Raymond led the scoring race for almost the entire 2021-22 season, it’s a bit surprising to see him so off right now. He has just four points in nine games, but he tallied them all in two separate games almost two full weeks apart. There are some points where you can tell he’s snakebitten. There’s other times when he’s clearly not playing at the level we know he’s capable of, especially as a passer. Raymond played best with Tyler Bertuzzi last year, but he’s been hurt for most of the season. Maybe his eventual return will help spark Raymond, but that could still be a few more weeks away. Raymond is too good to be left off the scoresheet so often – something has to click soon.

Make that drive often, not a bad drive to be honest
