“Cogs is such a valuable member [of] our team and we felt it paramount to keep him,” said Ducks executive vice president/general manager Bob Murray through the team’s twitter account. “He’s very consistent, competes every night and, most importantly, is a terrific person.
“He sets a great example to our younger players with his attitude and approach to the game and is extremely deserving of this contract extension.”
Cogliano has played in 43 games for the Ducks this season, tallying five goals and 18 points with a plus-seven rating. The 30-year-old forward has been in Anaheim since the 2011-12 season after four years with the Edmonton Oilers.
Drafted in the first round (25th overall) of the 2005 NHL Draft by the Oilers, Cogliano has racked up 149 goals and 351 points in 829 career regular-season games. In 60 post-season games, the Toronto native has seven goals and 24 points.
