Cooley does ‘The Michigan’ at U18 worlds, Russia removed as 2023 host

USA Hockey’s Logan Cooley, the second-ranked prospect for the 2022 NHL Draft and a possible draft pick of the Detroit Red Wings if Detroit moves up into the top two picks after the draft lottery on May 10, pulled off ‘The Michigan’ lacrosse- style goal in a 13-3 win over Latvia in the quarter-finals of the 2022 IIHF Ice Hockey U18 World Championship in Germany on Thursday.

Named after University of Michigan’s Mike Legg who scored the lacrosse-style goal in 1996, Cooley picked up the puck on the blade of his stick and tucked the puck into the top corner from behind the Latvia net for a 5-0 lead in the first period.
