Zach Cohen (ice hockey)
Zach Cohen (born April 14, 1987) is an American professional ice hockey player, who is currently an unrestricted free agent who most recently played with the Elmira Jackals of the ECHL. He previously played with the Lake Erie Monsters of the American Hockey League.
Prior to turning professional, Cohen attended Boston University, playing four seasons of college hockey with the NCAA Division I Boston Terriers team, culminating in a National Championship title in 2009. In the Championship game, Cohen scored a vital game-tying goal with under a minute remaining, helping the Terriers secure their improbable victory over Miami University.
Upon completion of his collegiate career, Cohen joined three other teammates in signing to a two-year entry level contract with the Colorado Avalanche on March 23, 2010. Throughout the duration of his contract with the Avalanche, Cohen was assigned to its AHL affiliate, the Lake Erie Monsters, used primarily as a depth player.
Without a contract tender to remain with the Avalanche, Cohen signed as an unrestricted free agent to a one-year deal with the Bakersfield Condors of the ECHL on October 3, 2012. In the 2012–13 season, Cohen scored 11 points in 31 games before he was traded by the Condors to the Greenville Warriors in exchange for the rights of T.J. Fast, on January 9, 2013.
On October 17, 2013, Cohen accepted his first European contract, signing a one-year deal with Olofströms IK of the Swedish Division 1. After a single season in Sweden, Cohen remained in Europe after agreeing to a contract with Hungarian MOL Liga club, Miskolci Jegesmedvék on June 20, 2014. In the 2014–15 season, Cohen established himself as an offensive leader and contributed with a professional high 49 points in 42 games.
On July 24, 2015, Cohen returned to North America as a free agent and signed a one-year contract with the Rapid City Rush of the ECHL.
