Avalanche Re-Signs Logan O’Connor

September 20th, 2020 by Colorado Avalanche @Avalanche / ColoradoAvalanche.com

The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that the team has re-signed forward Logan O’Connor to a two-year contract through the 2021-22 season.

O’Connor, 24, split the 2019-20 campaign between the Avalanche and the club’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Colorado Eagles. He tallied two points (2g/0a) in 16 contests with the Avs while totaling 25 points (12g/13a) in 40 regular-season games with the Eagles. Born in Missouri City, Texas, O’Connor made his Stanley Cup Playoff debut in Game 3 of Colorado’s second-round series against the Dallas Stars on Aug. 26 and finished the 2020 postseason with one point (0g/1a) in five contests, recording his first career playoff point in Game 5 of the series on Aug. 31.

Signed by Colorado as a free agent on July 23, 2018, O’Connor has skated in 21 career regular-season NHL games (2g/0a) and has produced 67 points (31g/36a) in 104 career AHL outings. In his first professional season in 2018-19, he led the AHL with five shorthanded tallies and scored 19 goals, which was tied for second on the Eagles and tied for seventh among all league rookies. He tallied his first career NHL goal on Nov. 27, 2019 against Edmonton.

“Logan has continued to elevate his game each season and made the most of his opportunities this year and in the Stanley Cup Playoffs,” said Avalanche Executive Vice President / General Manager Joe Sakic. “He’s a hardworking player who brings speed and energy to our lineup and we’re excited to have him for another two seasons.”

Prior to turning pro, O’Connor spent three seasons at the University of Denver, where he helped the Pioneers capture the NCAA championship as a sophomore in 2016-17, appearing in all 44 games that year (7g/11a). The 6-foot, 175-pound right wing finished his college career with 43 points (16g/27a) in 108 games, winning a NCHC regular-season championship (2016-17) and tournament championship (2017-18), to go along with his national title.

O’Connor tallied 46 points (19g/27a) in 117 career games with Sioux Falls of the United States Hockey League from 2013-15, where he helped the Stampede win the Clark Cup as league champions in 2015.
