I swear I must have posted between 8-10 of these types of videos in the last three weeks.
Luckily, everyone has escaped a serious injury.
This time it is Andrew Cogliano getting the skare of Mark Giordano to the side of his face.
After what seemed like a ten minute review, the situation room in Toronto reversed the on-ice decision of no goal and awarded Andrew Cogliano the goal.
from Doug Harrison of CBC,
Andrew Cogliano is quickly adapting to life as an Anaheim Duck, agreeing to a three-year contract just one week after the team acquired him in a trade with Edmonton.
The 24-year-old, whom some believe could be a replacement for retired centre Todd Marchant, will make $7.2 million US over the life of the contract - $2.15 million in the first year, followed by $2.35 million and $2.67 million, according to CBCSports.ca senior hockey writer Tim Wharnsby.
A restricted free agent who earned $1 million last season, Cogliano also avoids an arbitration hearing later this summer.
ANAHEIM, Calif. – The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has acquired center Andrew Cogliano from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for a second-round selection in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
Cogliano, 24 (6/14/87), appeared in 82 games for the Edmonton Oilers last season, collecting 11-24=35 points with 64 penalty minutes (PIM). Cogliano has not missed a game since making his NHL debut with Edmonton in 2007-08, appearing in all 82 games in each of his four NHL seasons. The 5-10, 185-pound center ranked fifth on the club in scoring and assists, third in game-winning goals (3), and led the team in games played. He also paced all Edmonton skaters with a career-high 461 faceoff wins.
(Edmonton) - General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today the Edmonton Oilers have agreed to terms with centre Andrew Cogliano on a one-year contract.
Cogliano, 23, finished last season appearing in all 82 games collecting 28 points (10G, 18A) and 31 penalty minutes. The 5’10” 185 lbs forward has played in 246 NHL games and has 111 points (46G, 65A) and 73 PIM.
The Toronto, ON native has played all three seasons for the Oilers including his rookie year in 2007-08 scoring 45 points (18G, 27A), which saw him land in the NHL record book when he scored overtime goals in three consecutive games.
from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,
It’s becoming painfully clear to unsigned Edmonton Oilers centre Andrew Cogliano that the team views him in a far harsher light than his best friend Sam Gagner with main training camp opening in a week.
The Oilers see Cogliano as a third-line player, with winger Gilbert Brule on one wing, provided Cogliano can find a way to get his faceoff percentage up from last year’s 43 per cent. It’s obviously not nearly strong enough for a player entering his fourth NHL season. Of course, if you played Brule on Cogliano’s wing, Brule could take the faceoffs in the defensive zone. After all, Brule finished at 52.6 per cent on draws in 2009-10.
But Cogliano, the only unsigned Oilers Group 2 free agent, may have to take $1 million less next season than Gagner, the probable No. 2 centre on the roster. He might have to take considerably less than Brule’s $1.85 million US per season in a two-year deal, too, even though Brule has 72 NHL points in 222 games, and Cogliano has 111 in 246.
That’s life in today’s corrected NHL, where clubs are being somewhat tighter with a buck for young players in their second contracts, to a large degree.
continued with more Oilers news too…
from David Staples of The Cult Of Hockey,
Every few months the same rumours come up about the Oilers wanting to or needing to trade Andrew Cogliano, and every months I write the same post, that the Oilers will regret trading Cogliano, who has added enough crust and jam to his game that he’s close to being a full loaf of a hockey player.
So here we go again . . . but I suspect, unfortunately, this this will be the last thing I write about Cogliano while he’s still an Oiler….
How do I see this player contributing to the Oilers becoming a winning team? As the Oilers’ very own Dan Cleary, a valuable third liner who can step up to one of the top two lines if necessary.
Cogliano improved to win 43 per cent of this faceoffs last season, but I still see him on the wing, as a third line checker and scorer, a player who works hard, crashes the net, hits, checks, scores 15-20 goals a year.
That’s what Cleary does. That’s what I believe Cogliano can do.
from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,
Can Andrew Cogliano be transformed into the next Todd Marchant?
If the young Edmonton Oilers forward can’t score, maybe it’s time to plant the seed and find Cogliano a new job description so he can stay in the NHL for the next 15 years.
Turn Cogliano one of the game’s five fastest skaters, into an indispensable checker, a super pest, a penalty-killer and a good faceoff man, just like Marchant.
from the Edmonton Sun,
Last night the Oilers rookie became the first player in NHL history to score three consecutive overtime winners as Edmonton defeated the St. Louis Blues 4-3 at Rexall Place.
“I actually don’t think my game was that good tonight, I don’t think I was very good in the first two periods,” Cogliano said.
“I think the overtime was my best five minutes of the game. I had a couple of chances to score before that, but I was lucky to get open in front of the net and score the goal.”
from the Edmonton Sun,
On Friday they went to dinner, four friends swapping stories and comparing notes on living out a childhood dream.
Then last night, Sam Gagner, Andrew Cogliano, Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews faced each other in a battle showcasing the future stars of the NHL.
Gagner and Cogliano with the Edmonton Oilers, Kane and Toews with the Chicago Blackhawks.
“It’s obviously great getting a chance to play against him after playing with him all of last year,” Gagner said of facing Kane. “It’s exciting.”
From Derek Van Diest at the Edmonton Sun,
“I don’t remember much, I just remember falling back,” Cogliano said. “My visor was up obviously and I think he was just jumping over me and his skate came up and caught me. It was pretty scary I didn’t want to open my eye, I just wanted to hold my hand over it.”
Cogliano was sporting a pair of small cuts on his cheekbone.
[Rob] Blake was stepping over Cogliano when his back skate came up and caught him just under the eye. Cogliano was back in the lineup yesterday against the Anaheim Ducks.
“There wasn’t a lot of blood, but for the most part it was a pretty scary incident,” Cogliano said. “My head was tilted backwards and that’s why his skate was able to get under my visor.”
