Detroit Red Wings sign Sebastian Cossa to entry-level contract

Edmonton, AB – The Detroit Red Wings have inked Edmonton Oil Kings goaltender Sebastian Cossa to a three-year entry-level contract.

Cossa, a Fort McMurray, Alberta product, was drafted by the Red Wings in the first round, 15th-overall, at last month’s NHL Entry Draft.

The 18-year-old netminder is coming off a season in which he was named the Central Division’s Goaltender of the Year and the Oil Kings team MVP after posting a dominant 17-1-0-1 record to go along with a league best 1.57 goals-against average and .941 save percentage.  He tied for the league lead in shutouts with four and his 17 wins ranked second.

In his career, the 6-foot-7, 203-pound goaltender has compiled a record of 38-7-2-2 with a 1.98 goals-against average, .928 save percentage and eight shutouts.

Earlier this summer he attended Hockey Canada’s World Junior development camp just outside of Calgary, Alberta.
