Prospect round-up: Brattstrom’s bad night; Cossa wins, Cotton 2A in WHL; Draper 1+1 in blowout win

Of Red Wings prospect-related note in North America:

In the ECHL, Victor Brattstrom had a very rough evening, as did his Toledo Walleye teammates. Brattstrom stopped 26 of 35 shots on Wednesday, surrendering 9 goals as Toledo lost 9-2 to the Cincinnati Cyclones.

Toledo is playing a stretch of 3 games in 3 nights (they play in Fort Wayne on Thanksgiving, and host Indy on Friday), so Brattstrom should wind up back in the Walleye cage before all is said and done on Friday.

In the OHL, Pasquale Zito had an assist, but finished at -3 with 4 shots and a 5-for-14 faceoff record as the Windsor Spitfires lost 5-2 to the London Knights;

In the WHL, Sebastian Cossa stopped 30 of 33 shots in the Edmonton Oil Kings’ 5-3 win over Red Deer;

Alex Cotton had 2 assists, finishing at +1 with 4 shots (and earned second star honors) as his Vancouver Giants won 3-2 in overtime over the Portland Winterhawks. Cross Hanas finished at -2 with 4 shots and 2 minor penalties taken for Portland;

In the BCHL, Kienan Draper scored a goal and added an assist, finishing even in the Chilliwack Chiefs’ 11-1 win over Powell River;

And in NCAA Hockey, Ryan O’Reilly finished at -1 with 1 shot as the Arizona State University Sun Devils lost 4-3 to Bemidji State.
