Cossa Among Eight Dropped From Red Wings Training Camp Roster



Goaltender Sebastian Cossa was among five Red Wings returned to their junior clubs on Saturday.

Sebastian Cossa’s first taste of life as a Detroit Red Wing was a brief sampling.

The goaltender was a first-round selection by Detroit in the 2021 NHL entry draft. Cossa is among five players returning to their junior clubs, the Red Wings anounced Saturday.

The Red Wings assigned Cossa (WHL Edmonton Oil Kings), forwards Cross Hanas (WHL Portland Winterhawks) and Pasquale Zito (OHL Windsor Spitfires), D Oscar Plandowski (QMJHL Charlottetown Islanders), and goalteders Jan Bednar (QMJHL Acadie-Bathurst) and Cossa (WHL Edmonton Oil Kings) to their respective major junior clubs.

As well, the Red Wings released forwards Cameron Butler, Luke Toporowski and Cooper Walker from their amateur tryouts.

Cossa participated in the Red Wings NHL rookie tournament. He also attended the first two days of on-ice drilling during the club’s main training camp.

Grand Rapids AHL coach Ben Simon felt Cossa’s first taste of pro life, while brief, was worthwhile. The experience will serve him well as he returns to the junior ranks.

“It was good for him to have experience of playing in this tournament when things are a little bit chaotic at times because of lack of structure because teams haven’t been together for so long,” Simon said.
