The Oakville, Ontario native is currently in his second season with his hometown Blades, having joined the club last season out of the Victory Honda U16 club based in Michigan. He previously had played his minor midget 'AAA' season as a member of the Brampton 45's. As a 17-year old rookie with the Blades, Kosack posted impressive numbers, finishing second with 18 goals and fifth in overall scoring with 36 points in 42 regular season games. He added four points in 10 post-season contests, getting his first taste of Junior 'A' playoff action, downing Orangeville in a thrilling seven game series before falling to the eventual champion Toronto Patriots. Thus far this season, Kosack has taken his game to another level, leading the Blades in most offensive categories, while sitting tied for second in the OJHL with 21 goals and fourth in overall scoring with 38 points in 27 games played. His efforts thus far, earned him a spot on Team OJHL Oates, notching two points in four games while falling in the semi-final to Team CCHL Yzerman at the 2015 Eastern Canada Cup All-Star Challenge held in Cornwall, Ontario.
Congratulations to Josh on the commitment and best of luck throughout the remainder of his OJHL career!
