July 2021 – Cossa was selected in the first round, 15th overall by the Detroit Red Wings in the 2021 NHL Draft. Nick Richard

February 2021 – Cossa had a fantastic rookie season in the WHL, sporting a 2.23 GAA and .921 SV% in 33 games with the Edmonton Oil Kings. He has yet to play a game in his draft season as the WHL is still on hold due to the pandemic but he will be in line for as big a  workload as he can get in a 24 game season, once they get their campaign underway.

Standing at 6-6 and weighing 212 pounds, the Alberta native possesses the combination of size and athletic ability that NHL teams covet in the goaltending position. He has good fundamentals and uses his big body to square up to shooters, cutting down angles while being agile enough to get across his crease quickly. His height is an advantage when it comes to tracking pucks through traffic and his rebound control is quite good for a young goaltender as well. Cossa’s potential might not be on quite the same level as some of the recent highly drafted goaltending prospects but he isn’t far behind and the physical traits along with his athleticism might just be enough to make an NHL team take a swing on him towards the end of the first round.
