Bad news, good news from Team Canada’s camp: Cossa passed over for #2 spot? ; more with Mrs. Sebrango

So there’s mixed news from Hockey Canada’s camp today. First, Brett Brochu will start vs. Austria on Tuesday, essentially relegating Sebastian Cossa to the 3rd goaltender’s role–for now…

And second, we get more of Donovan Sebrango’s mom’s discussion with TSN’s Mark Masters after he scored his goal on Sunday:

A third-round pick by the Detroit Red Wings in the 2020 draft, Sebrango has played 51 AHL games over the last two seasons picking up seven assists. Among the final cuts by Hockey Canada last year, Sebrango earned his way onto the World Junior squad this year. 

“Donovan’s always been pretty determined,” Kim said. “I called it stubborn. We’ll say it’s determination now and it’s served him well. He’s been a hard worker since Day 1. He was always the kid who was at the rink two or three hours early because he had to tape his sticks. He was pretty focused from an early age. He’s had a lot of help along the way and I just can’t believe we’re here.”

Even before scoring on Sunday, Donovan had delivered a special experience for his mom. 

“I can’t even explain it,” Kim said. “Trish Power came up to me and was like, ‘Oh, I want to introduce myself,’ and I’m like, ‘Holy cow!’ I’m in awe of her. And then I see her son play. And the Perfettis. I just can’t believe. I can’t believe I’m here. We started out in a small town in Gananoque, population 5,200, so to be here is something special.”

  1. Nice too see a Proud Hockey MOM!!

    I thought the Gallant guy was average at Best but he thinks he is a great coach. Goalies do not like him.

    Cossa has had a great attitude. 2nd string guy I know nothing about, but Cossa not playing at all is not good. For Cossa, if I was Coach I would have no problem putting him in later. He will excel in any conditions. Yes I said that, LOL.

    Did I mention I DO NOT LIKE THE COACH of Team Canada, LOL

    Even splitting the Austria game is not great. No shots for Poor Austria. Will see I guess.

    I like Owen Power, going to be a Great NHLer. Not stupid, like a Pronger!!
