A few months ago, we learned that promising prospect Logan Cooley wanted to return to the NCAA next year for his second season with the University of Minnesota.

"Logan Cooley, finalist for the Hobey Baker, will be returning for his second season with the Gophers."

Even though he had proven himself in the NCAA with an incredible season of 22 goals and 60 points in 39 games, this decision surprised many. Rumors started circulating about the possibility that he might refuse to report to the organization that drafted him third overall a year earlier.

However, a major turnaround could be on the horizon, as he might ultimately give up his desire to play another college season to sign with the Coyotes immediately.


Sportsnet informant Elliotte Friedman believes this situation could be resolved within the next 24 to 48 hours.


It would be a significant coup for the Coyotes to have a young top talent like Cooley in their lineup next fall.

Many Montreal Canadiens fans will undoubtedly keep a close eye on his first professional season, as they can now make more comparisons with the development of Juraj Slafkovksy, who was selected first overall in the same draft.
