Former Penn State Men’s Hockey Star Cole Hults Traded To Arizona Coyotes

Former Penn State men’s hockey defenseman Cole Hults has been traded from the Los Angeles Kings to the Arizona Coyotes, the team announced Saturday morning.

Hults was a part of a four-player deal during the second round of the 2021 NHL Draft.

The Wisconsin native signed a two-year entry-level contract with the Kings in April of last year. He played his first professional season with the Ontario Reign, the AHL affiliate of the Kings. The defenseman played 19 games while tallying one goal and four assists.

Despite a somewhat slow start to his professional career, Hults was one of Penn State’s best defensemen during his time with the Nittany Lions. He won Big Ten Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year after his senior season, and is also the all-time leader in points for a defenseman at Penn State with 78. Hults finished his career with the Nittany Lions with 17 goals, 61 assists, and a plus/minus of 48, the third-best in program history.
