Questions Before The Prospect Tournament

09/11/2022 at 9:11am EDT

from Nate Brown of Detroit Hockey Now,

Here are five questions, and some random thoughts, as the prospect tournament looms.

Will Sebastian Cossa Stand Out in the Tournament?
Outside of Detroit, the 15th overall pick of the 2021 draft has been impressive. But how will he fare when the eyes of the front office are watching intently? Goalies can take more time to develop and it’s important for Red Wings fans to remember that as Detroit climbs out of the rebuild. There are cautionary tales in Tim Chevelade and in some respects, Chris Osgood. The former was just hounded by fans and expectations until he left town while the latter had to overcome his own pressures. Osgood’s resulted in two Stanley Cups.

It’s too early for any kind of comparisons for Cossa. But it sure feels like this is the first real test for the youngster. The prospect tournament is just the warmup, but Cossa has an opportunity to build momentum into the preseason slate.

Can Amadeus Lombardi Continue Turning Heads?
