Sebastian Cossa Wants To Be The #1 Goalie For Canada At The WJC

from Aaron Vickers at NHL.com,

Sebastian Cossa is hoping to make his mark in Canada's crease at the 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship.

The 19-year-old, who plays for Edmonton of the Western Hockey League, is one of three goalies auditioning for the role of No. 1 for Canada, joining 2022 NHL Draft eligible Brett Brochu of London of the Ontario Hockey League and New York Rangers prospect Dylan Garand of Kamloops of the WHL.

"It's a lot of sacrifice and hard work that's gotten me to this point, so you embrace it and enjoy it," Cossa said. "There's a lot that comes with it, putting on the Team Canada jersey, a lot of expectations. You go out and try to represent your country and play well for them.

"Being the goalie for Team Canada definitely comes with the expectations that you're going to do good and a lot falls on your shoulders. At the end of the day, I'm just trying to keep a pretty small mindset and do my job and stop the puck."

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
