Allen offers praise for Sebrango among ‘5 takeaways’

Among Detroit Hockey Now’s Kevin Allen’s “5 Takeaways” from the Red Wings’ 5-2 loss to the St. Louis Blues at the prospect tournament:

Defenseman Donovan Sebrango, a third round pick in 2020, just keeps forcing the Red Wings to view him as being part of their rebuild. Last season, the Red Wings gave him a tryout contract in Grand Rapids because the Ontario Hockey League wasn’t playing because of Covid-19. He rose to the level of American League competition and became a valuable player on the Griffins.

At the NHL Prospects Tournament, he’s been solid and dependable in his first two games. And when the Blues were pushing the Red Wing around, it was Sebrango who stood up for his teammates by fighting Brayden Guy.

“He’s a hard-nosed defenseman,” Veleno said. “…He impressed me with the fight.”

Continued; Sebrango is far too young to know what “Wango Tango” means, but I think that’s a fine nickname for him.
