It’s entirely possible that goaltender Sebastian Cossa will soon find himself back with the Grand Rapids Griffins.
Sunday, the Griffins beat the Toronto Marlies 5-2 at Coca-Cola Coliseum. However, with 10:17 left in the opening period, goaltender Victor Brattstrom was forced to leave the game due to an undisclosed injury. Jussi Olkinuora came on to finish the game. In the process, he was picking up his first win in the AHL since Feb. 15, 2015, and his eighth win overall victory in the league.
Get a load of this guy 😯

It’s not yet known the severity of Brattstrom’s injury. If he’s going to be out for any amount of significance, expect Cossa, the 15th overall pick of the Detroit Red Wings in the 2021 NHL entry draft, to get a recall from the ECHL Toledo Walleye.
Tyutyayev Shining For Griffins
The 190th player chosen in the 2019 NHL entry draft by the Red Wings, left-winger Kirill Tyutyayev has always been carrying a bit of mystery about what he might be able to accomplish as a pro. Just 5-foot-10 and 170 pounds, Tyutyayev oozes skill.
An injury-plagued 2021-22 campaign was hampering his North American debut. Tyutyayev ended up playing just nine games. However, his unique talents are surfacing early in the 2022-23 season.
Tyutyayev set up two goals in Sunday’s win. That gives him four points in four game (2-2-4).
“I have been out a lot,” Tyutyayev said. “I’ve missed hockey, so I’m so happy to be back.”
Forward Pontus Andersson dre an assist for his first AHL point. Defenseman Donovan Sebrango scored his first goal of the season and second in the AHL.
Center Austin Czarnik (4-3-7) and LW Matt Luff (3-4-7) are leading the Griffins in scoring. Taro Hirose has dished out a team-high five assists. Rookie forward Cross Hanas has counted three goals.
Former Red Wings defenseman Danny DeKeyser was making his debut for the Marlies on the weekend. He played both Saturday and Sunday games. DeKeyser was pointless and even.
In Saturday’s 4-1 Marlies victory, 2017 Red Wings draft pick Keith Petruzzelli was making 16 save for the victory.
