What follows is a presser from the Griffins about a recent Wings selection already making a name for himself in the organization. Sebrango’s ELC is eligible to slide (automatically extend one year) provided he doesn’t play in 7 games with the Wings this season.
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Detroit Red Wings on Sunday signed defenseman Donovan Sebrango to a three-year entry-level contract beginning with the 2021-22 season.
Sebrango, 19, signed an amateur tryout with the Griffins on Jan. 20 and has registered one assist and 14 penalty minutes through his first nine AHL contests. A third-round selection (63rd overall) of the Red Wings in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, the 6-1, 190-pound native of Ottawa, Ontario, spent the last two seasons with the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League, posting 30 points (6-24—30) and 33 PIM in 56 games last season after compiling 26 points (7-19-26) and 54 PIM in 62 games during the 2018-19 campaign.
The son of former Cuban soccer pro Eduardo Sebrango began this season by playing five games with HK Levice in Slovakia, totaling three points (1-2—3) and 50 PIM.
With points in seven of their last eight games, the Griffins will continue a three-game homestand by hosting the Rockford IceHogs on Tuesday at 7 p.m. Fans can watch the game on WXSP-TV or via a subscription to AHLTV, or tune in to the simulcast on Newsradio WOOD 106.9 FM/1300 AM.
