In 1925-26, he dressed for 36 games and was an offensive powerhouse, scoring 28 times. The following year, Cooper was traded midway through the season to the Montreal Canadiens. In 14 games with his new club, he scored five goals and eight points. The Bruins, minus Cooper, advanced to the championship finals that year, but lost to the Ottawa Senators.
In 1927-28, Cooper began a three-year association with the Detroit Cougars where he did not miss a single game. In 1929-30, he had the finest year of his NHL career, scoring 18 goals and 36 points. In 1931-32, the team became the Detroit Falcons, and Cooper dressed for all 48 games.

He played one more year with the Olympics before retiring after the 1934-35 campaign.
