Coyotes Logan Cooley breaks bizarre curse in NHL debut



Logan Cooley played an important role in the Coyotes 4-3 victory over the Devils on Friday night, but he also re-wrote the history books.


The 19-year-old also broke an ages old curse, something that fascinated us when we heard it for the first time.






Today, Friday the 13th, is known as an unlucky day in western superstition. It typically falls once or twice per year, and has known to impact every day lives for those who believe in it.


In NHL history, just 14 players have made their league debut on Friday the 13th, with Logan Cooley becoming the most recent as of today.


Of this group of 14 players, Cooley is the first to record at least one point. He had two assists tonight.





Cooley also became the second-youngest player in Coyotes/Jets history with two points in his NHL debut. (19 year, 162 days), joining Shane Doan on October 7, 1995 (18 years, 362 days).


This young man is considered one of the top prospects in professional hockey, compared alongside the names of Connor Bedard, Adam Fantilli and Devon Levi as Calder Trophy favorites.
