Sebastian Cossa

Sebastian Cossa is not the top-rated goalie in this draft, but he definitely does have a lot of upside to his game. Cossa is playing in the WHL for the Edmonton Oil Kings, during which time he has four shutouts in 19 games with the Oil Kings.

Cossa has a 17-1-1 record this season and has a goals against an average of 1.57. The Blackhawks would be lucky to add a netminder like Cossa. He has a lot of size and could be NHL ready in a few seasons similar to Commesso.

You can never have too much help in the net. WHile the Blackhawks did draft a potential franchise goalie last season, it wouldn’t hurt the organization to add another.
