Sillinger named USHL Rookie of the Year

Cole Sillinger, a top prospect for the 2021 NHL Draft, was named USHL Rookie of the Year, the league announced Monday.

The award was determined by a vote of league coaches and general managers.

Sillinger, No. 13 in FCHockey’s Spring ranking for the 2021 draft, had 46 points (24 goals, 22 assists) in 31 games with the Sioux Falls Stampede, including a 14-game point streak that amassed 23 points (12 goals, 11 assists) from Feb. 19-March 27.

“Sillinger had a huge impact when he joined the Stampede,” FCHockey regional scout Dylan Krill said. “He filled a big role, as the team was struggling to score. His lethal shot gave his team a scoring threat every game. He was able to find his confidence early, putting up eight goals in his first 11 games.”

He joined the team on loan from the Medicine Hat Tigers of the Western Hockey League in January.
