One should never say never of course, but I don't think he has any kind of realistic chance.
His stats are looking very impressive for now, with this production we should definately try him out at some exhibition games and see how he does. NCAA is a good league, he plays in a strong conference. Scoring there at a good clip at a young age like Kossila is impressive.
Besides it might be that he's taken some huge strides in his game over the summer. Same goes for Ahti Oksanen. If players with good stats in Mestis get invites to camps, so should players with good stats in NCAA.
Btw Kossila was one of the best players on the challenger squad last year already.
