The year 2020-2021 will be remembered for a long time by Cole Caufield and it's not because of the pandemic. This season has been filled with all kinds of accomplishments for the young Montreal Canadiens prospect. Here is a summary of his accomplishments.

First, in January, he won the gold medal at the World Junior Championship against the powerful Canadian team.
Then, at the university level, Caufield participated in the finals of the Big 10 tournament, a division for universities in the central region of the United States. The winner of this tournament automatically qualifies for the NCAA national championship. His team, the Wisconsin Badgers, lost to the University of Minnesota.
Also at the college level, #22 wins the Hobey Baker Trophy, awarded to the top player in the U.S. college circuit.
The same day he won the award, he made his professional debut with the Laval Rocket in the American League. Caufield played two games and scored four points, including three goals.
One of the dates that Cole Caufield will remember for a long time is April 26, when the big club inserted him into the lineup to face the Calgary Flames. From that point on, the Mosinee, Wisconsin native stayed in the National Hockey League and has never returned to Laval since. His first goal came in overtime against the Ottawa Senators. The next game, same thing, he scored the winning goal in overtime against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
In late May, Caufield got his first taste of the NHL playoffs. The 5'7" winger still scored 12 points in 20 playoff games with four goals and eight assists. Despite not winning the Stanley Cup, he and the Montreal Canadiens were able to claim the Clarence Campbell Trophy, normally given to the best team in the Western Association, but this year with the different divisions, the North Division was part of the Western Association.
To add to his list of achievements, he can add the title he received from the University of Wisconsin where he was named the male athlete of the year, while in the women's game, it was another field hockey player, Daryl Watts, who won the title.
Cole Caufield has accomplished in one year what many are not able to accomplish in a career. There are many more accomplishments to come in her case as her professional career is just beginning.
