Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Ed Cooper
Loon Lake, Saskatchewan became the hometown of Ed Cooper on August 28th, 1960. Cooper was selected by the Colorado Rockies in the 1980 Entry Draft and by the next year he was in the NHL. Cooper played 47 games for the Rockies and fired in seven goals from the left wing while adding 7 assists. Despite his rookie success he would be limited to just two games with the Rockies in 1981-82.

The acquisitions of Don Lever and Brent Ashton, coupled with the emergence of sophomore Aaron Broten made the left wing a very crowded spot in Colorado. Cooper, who spent most of the season in the minors with the Forth Worth Texans was traded to Edmonton Oilers on March 9th, 1982.

The change of scenery did not change Cooper's luck and he did not return to the NHL and left the game all together for the 1982-83 campaign. However he was back the following year adding two more seasons of minor pro hockey to his before retiring for good in 1985.
