National Lacrosse League career

In 2001, he made his NLL debut with the Toronto Rock, where he played for four seasons as a backup goaltender. On July 27, 2004, Cosmo was traded to San Jose in a six-player blockbuster trade.[2] He continued to succeed as a starter for the Stealth, and was selected as the starting goaltender for the Western Division in both the 2005 and 2006 National Lacrosse League All-Star Game.

In 2005 Cosmo finished 5th in the league with a 12.28 goals against average (GAA). During 2006, Cosmo's 10.38 GAA was the third best in the league, and his save percentage was 6th best in the league. 2007 was Cosmo's best career season, leading the league in both GAA (10.22) and save percentage (.792). For his performance, Cosmo was named the Progressive Goaltender of the Year award for the 2007 season.[3]

Cosmo was traded to the Chicago Shamrox for Matt Roik and two first-round draft picks.[4] However, shortly before the 2009 season began, the Shamrox suspended operations, and a dispersal draft was held. Cosmo was selected first overall by the expansion Boston Blazers.[5] During the 2009 NLL season, he was named a reserve to the All-Star game.[6]
