If Sebastian Cossa has a say, he's playing in the Detroit Red Wings' organization next season.
The 6-foot-6, 215-pound goaltender delivered impressive numbers in 2021-22: A 2.28 goals-against average and .913 save percentage in 46 regular-season games for the Western Hockey League's Edmonton Oil Kings, plus a 1.93 GAA and .919 save percentage in 19 playoff games that included a trip to the Memorial Cup.
From Cossa's viewpoint, he's ready to turn pro.
"Going into the season, I want to play at the highest level of hockey I can," he said Monday. "I think my game is going to do the speaking for me and management obviously has the say in where I’m going to be playing. But I put a lot of work into my game and I’m very confident in myself and my game. I think for myself, I’ve already proven it to myself."
