Talking With Sebastian Cossa

from Mike Ashmore of FloHockey,

On the surface, seeing Sebastian Cossa on an ECHL roster is a bit jarring.

In reality, it's the best thing for the Toledo Walleye goaltender, as the Detroit Red Wings can maximize the development of their prized 19-year-old prospect, whom they selected with the 15th overall pick in the 2021 NHL Draft.

After a brief stint with the Grand Rapids Griffins in the American Hockey League, it has been Toledo's Huntington Center that Cossa has called home thus far, posting a 2.39 goals against average and a .913 save percentage in his first seven games with the Walleye, recording wins in four of them.

"I came down here for a preseason game and then went back up to the A, so I had a little bit of a taste for what it was like down here," Cossa told FloHockey via cell phone. "I didn't really know what to expect. Obviously, you don't see a lot of first-rounders, but I think it doesn't really matter. It's different for a goalie, I think, and you're seeing pro shots still. That's beneficial for me. I've been playing a lot down here, which has helped me a lot."

Well, hopefully the brass has learned not to rush their goaltenders like they did with Larsson(sp). So far so good, bury him for a few years, then hopefully the pressure will be less on Cossa. So far, I can see him in Toledo for a full year then 2 in the "A"
