DENVER – The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that the team has acquired forward Andrew Cogliano from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for a fifth-round selection in the 2024 NHL Draft.

He has totaled 425 points (174g/251a) in 1,122 career contests with the Edmonton Oilers, Anaheim Ducks, Dallas Stars and Sharks. Selected by Edmonton in the first round (25th overall) of the 2005 NHL Draft, Cogliano recorded an 830-game ironman streak from Oct. 4, 2007 through Jan. 13, 2018, which was the fourth-longest in the NHL at the time. He is one of two NHL skaters to appear in 800 consecutive games from the start of their career (Doug Jarvis, 964).

The 5-foot-10, 179-pound center has collected 29 points (10g/19a) in 100 career postseason contests with Anaheim and Dallas. He helped the Stars reach the Stanley Cup Final in 2020 and paced the team in hits (89) and shorthanded time on ice (99:31) that season. Cogliano was part of Anaheim’s runs to the Western Conference Finals in 2015 an 2017, setting playoff career highs in goals (3) and points (9) and matching his career best in assists (6) in 2015.
