Red Wings prospect Donovan Sebrango named alternate captain for Team Canada

When Red Wings prospect Donovan Sebrango represents Team Canada at the 2022 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship from Aug. 9 – 20 in Edmonton, he’ll do so with an “A” on his chest.

On Tuesday, Team Canada announced that Sebrango, who was Detroit’s 63rd overall pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, was named an alternate captain for his native country.

“In the room, you try to be a leader, lead by example and take it day by day,” Sebrango said on July 11. “They’re still (Team Canada teammates) the same age as me, so you don’t want to come in like you’re better than them.”

Last season, the 20-year-old defenseman had one goal and six assists in 65 games for the Red Wings’ American Hockey League-affiliate Grand Rapids Griffins.

According to the Ottawa native, he’s ready to show his fellow countrymen “what pro hockey is like and what it takes to get there.”

“I just try to bring my leadership and experience playing against men,” Sebrango said. “And hopefully, that takes us to gold.”
