Jun 27, 2024, 6:33 PM | Updated: 6:46 pm

SALT LAKE CITY – The NHL announced Utah Hockey Club center Logan Cooley as a member of the league’s All-Rookie Team for the 2023-24 season.

Logan Cooley lands on NHL All-Rookie Team

The league announced its All-Rookie Team following the NHL Awards show on Thursday, June 27.

Cooley was the lone member of Utah’s roster to earn a spot on the NHL’s first, second, or All-Rookie teams for the season.

In addition to Cooley, Connor Bedard (Chicago Blackhawks), Brock Faber (Minnesota Wild), Luke Hughes (New Jersey Devils), Marco Rossi (Minnesota Wild), and Pyotr Kochetkov (Carolina Hurricanes) made the league’s All-Rookie Team for 2023-24.

Bedard, Faber, and Hughes were unanimous selections to the team.

All-Rookie voting was done by the Professional Hockey Writers Association.

Bedard also won the NHL Rookie of the Year award (Calder Trophy).

Cooley joined Bedard as the only players to rank among the top five rookies in goals (tied for 3rd), assists (tied for 4th), and points (4th) while playing in all 82 regular season games.

In 2022, the Arizona Coyotes selected Cooley with the No. 3 overall pick in the NHL Draft.

Last season, the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native appeared in 82 games for the Coyotes as a first-year player. He recorded 20 goals and 24 assists for 44 points as a rookie. Cooley posted 18 penalty minutes in 2023-24.

Cooley’s rights were officially transferred to Utah Hockey Club on June 13.

The center is the third Utah HC player to ever earn a spot on the All-Rookie Team from their time in Arizona.

Matias Maccelli earned a spot on the team in 2022-23 and star forward Clayton Keller was named All-Rookie for the 2017-18 season.

Utah Hockey Club will open its 2024 preseason schedule against the St. Louis Blues at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa on September 22. The team’s first preseason game at home will be against the LA Kings a day later on September 23.

Utah will begin its inaugural season as an NHL team in the fall. The team will play its home games at the Delta Center in Salt Lake City.
