I don't know that he was "snubbed" so much as he was less available. He probably wouldn't have been able to practice with the team as much leading up to the tournament. For a "superstar", you don't worry about that as much, but I don't know that Kossila is a "superstar." He's very good though.
Yes, his numbers are quite impressive. I think that the coaching staff left him out because our Top 6 is too hard for him to crack and thought Aaltonen was a better fit for the third-line center than Kossila. Hard to say since I dont know the player. This years team is just packed with talent and the team is very well build. In any other year Kossila could/should have been in the team or atleast get an invite to the camp.
