The Edmonton Oilers have traded forward Andrew Cogliano to the Anaheim Ducks for a second round pick in the 2013 National Hockey League Entry Draft.
Cogliano scored 11 goals and 24 assists for an Oiler team that struggled mightily in the Western Conference standings.
Known for his speed and endurance, Cogliano did not miss one game in his first four years as an Edmonton Oiler. It is just too bad he seemed to take many nights off while playing in Edmonton, even though statistically he was registered as having played a game.
Cogliano was the Oilers’ first round pick, 25th overall in the 2005 National Hockey League Entry Draft, but seemed to be passed on the depth chart in recent years by Sam Gagner, Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle and Magnus Paajarvi.
This is also not the first time that Cogliano was involved in trade rumors. He, and Dustin Penner were heavily rumored to be traded for Dany Heatley two years ago.
