Observations

September 2018 – As a natural centre, Cotter has played a minimal role in some of the Detroit areas top programs with the Compuware and Little Caesars before ending up with the Lincoln Stars in the USHL last season. Out of the 39 points he picked up in the 51 games he played in, 18 of those were goals. In fact, he’s always had a good knack for finding the back of the net, and will look to hone those skills next year where he’s committed to play with Western Michigan in the NCAA. It’s difficult to tell how high Cotter’s fantasy upside is going reach because early on it was expected that he’d be more of a two-way depth player, but in the past couple of years he’s shown an increased ability for finding the score sheet. It’s his solid mix of skill, speed and grittiness that may eventually land him in the NHL as a secondary scorer, but it will take a couple more years in the NCAA to paint a clearer picture of what his long-term potential is.
