Detroit Red Wings Prospect Named Player of the Week

Red Wings prospect takes home player of the week award

The Detroit Red Wings are currently on a hot streak and just completed something for the first time since Steve Yzerman has taken over as General Manager and that’s won six straight hockey games. The Red Wings are currently sitting in the first Wild Card spot and have a good chance to return to the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time since 2015-16. Meanwhile, the Red Wings AHL affiliate the Grand Rapids Griffins are on a hot streak of their own having recorded at least a point in their last 14 games; their last regulation loss came on January 13th at the hands of Chicago Blackhawks AHL affiliate the Rockford Ice Hogs. Last week they went 3-0-0 beating the Dallas Stars AHL affiliate twice, the first one coming on Wednesday winning 1-0 and the other on Saturday winning 4-1. They also beat the AHL’s hottest team the Milwaukee Admirals the AHL affiliate of the Nashville Predators on Sunday 4-2, the Admirals had won 19 straight games entering that matchup and the Griffins put it to a halt. With the Griffins success, their goaltender Sebastian Cossa was awarded AHL Player of the Week honors.

Sebastian Cossa By The Numbers

Cossa last week stopped 65 of the 67 shots he faced which gave him a 1.00 goals against average and a .970 save percentage for the week. His first start came on Wednesday and in that game, he stopped all 28 shots he faced for his first career AHL shutout leading the Griffins to a 1-0 win over the Stars. He got the start also on Sunday against the Admirals and he stopped 37 of the 39 shots he faced which also included a total of 14 shots in the third period alone and he stopped every single one en route to that 4-2 victory. This season in 24 games he is 12-7-5 with a 2.61 goals-against average and a .911 save percentage. He is 8-1-2 in his last 11 appearances with a 1.90 goals against average and a .931 save percentage in that stretch. Cossa was selected by the Red Wings with the 15th overall pick in the 2021 Draft.
