The Detroit Red Wings signed goaltender Sebastian Cossa to a three-year, entry-level contract, the team announced Saturday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Detroit selected Cossa 15th overall in last month's NHL Entry Draft after trading three picks to the Dallas Stars in order to move up and secure the top-ranked North American netminder.

The 18-year-old from Fort McMurray, Alta., posted a stellar 17-1-1 record, 1.57 goals-against average and .941 save percentage in 19 games with the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League this past season.
