Observations:

December 2017  Cooper Marody has taken off on the scoresheet much like a bat out of hell and it shows as the collegiate junior has 24 points through just 16 contests so far this season. When you thought he could not get much faster than he already was, he somehow manages to find a high gear and is making good use of it when generating creating for others in the offensive zone. With him and other prospects coming down the pipeline, current NHL fixtures such as Giroux and Voracek will have a very capable cavalry for backup support in due course. Continuing to put on good weight while keeping his quickness intact remains a high priority. Edric Joseph

 

September 2016 – When you consider Cooper Marody’s point production prior to his freshman season at Michigan you may not have expected him to come out as strong as he did. The former sixth round selection racked up 10 goals and 14 assists through 32 games and managed to establish himself as one of Michigan’s key offensive cogs. Marody isn’t a player who generates a ton of opportunities on his own, however he compliments skilled playmakers well as he has a knack for banging home pucks in the home-plate area. Marody’s shooting ability is one of his stronger assets as he’s able to score from a distance, as well as getting his stick on bouncing pucks and eventually popping one in. He’s an intellegent player who doesn’t rely on physicality to gain puck possession, rather he maintains strong stick and body positioning in order to force turnovers. If there’s one thing Marody could do offensively to boost his offensive totals it would be improving upon his cycle play and being a more cerebral player in the sense that he often solely looks for loose change in front of the net rather than supporting his line mates and moving into better position. Long term Marody looks like he could very well be that third liner, similar to Matt Read who’s capable of posting around 35 points while bringing a much needed energy to the ice.  Brennen York
