Khan profiles Donovan Sebrango

MLive’s Ansar Khan posted a profile of Red Wings prospect and Kitchener Rangers defenseman Donovan Sebrango, who was named to Hockey Canada’s World Junior Championship selection camp today:

The Detroit Red Wings selected Sebrango, from the OHL Kitchener Rangers, with the first pick in the third round of this year’s draft (63rd overall).

Sebrango (6-1, 184) was among 46 players named Thursday to Canada’s World Junior Championship evaluation camp, which runs from Nov. 16 to Dec. 13 in Red Deer, Alberta. The World Junior Championship takes place Dec. 25-Jan. 5 in Edmonton.

The Red Wings drafted Sebrango mainly because of mobility.

“If you see clips of me, I think the skating is the one thing that really pops out,” Sebrango said. “I think it’s jumping in the rush, late man, and moving pucks quick and hopping in where there’s an open lane, not overextending plays or going out of my comfort zone. That’s when you have to find more offensive chances.

“But I always kind of relate to just the simple play, simple passes, tape-to-tape, and that’s where the offense will lead from.”
