As a 17-year-old Hogan was ineligible for senior football in his first season with the Demons, but was granted permission to play in the NAB Cup and impressed on his debut against North Melbourne before returning to the Casey Demons.
After kicking 39 goals in the VFL Hogan's season ended prematurely when he injured his knee in a late season game but he still won the Scorpions Best and Fairest award.
Set to debut in Round 1, 2014, Hogan's senior career was stalled when it was revealed that he had stress fractures in his back shortly before the season started. Despite initial predictions that he would only miss a few weeks he was placed on the long-term injury list on May 1.
He returned for one Casey game late in the year but did not make his senior debut until Round 1 the following year. Hogan effortlessly stepped into senior football the next year, kicking 44 goals despite Melbourne having another low scoring season and winning the Rising Star award.
In an improved side in 2016 he produced close to the same numbers as his debut year, but struggled late in the season after a fast start. He then had a troubled 2017, suspended early in the season before losing his father to cancer and then being diagnosed with the disease himself and undergoing surgery. He returned later in the year, suffered a broken collarbone, returned again then injured his hamstring in the last game of the year.
He had a more successful 2018 campaign, playing 20 games and kicking 47 goals before a foot injury ended his season after Round 21. At the conclusion of the season he was traded to Fremantle along with 2018 National Draft pick #65 for pick #6 and pick #23.
