Detroit Red Wings prospect defenseman Donovan Sebrango posted a pair of assists in the Grand Rapids Griffins’ 5-4 win against the Texas Stars on Friday.
The two teams play again today.
Donovan Sebrango, a third-round pick in 2020, is maturing into a player worth watching. He’s not going to be an elite puck moving blue liner. But he could become the dependable two-way guy you can win with. He doesn’t back down from anyone. After 13 games, he’s leading the Griffins with a +7 plus-minus.
He drew the Red Wings’ attention last season when he joined the Griffins a few months after he was drafted. Not only did he look comfortable, he turned out to be quite useful for the Griffins. He’s still only 19 and could have 110-115 AHL games on his resume by the end of this season.
