Cogliano, Ducks agree to three-year deal
Andrew Cogliano and the Anaheim Ducks have avoided an arbitration hearing, as the sides agreed to a three-year deal Tuesday.

CBC reported Tuesday morning that Cogliano, who was acquired from the Edmonton Oilers last week in exchange for a 2013 second-round draft pick, will receive just over $7 million over the length of the deal.

The 24-year-old never has missed a game since entering the NHL in 2007. In 328 games -- all with the Oilers -- Cogliano has 57 goals and 89 assists. He had 11 goals and 24 assists in 82 games last season.

The Oilers originally drafted Cogliano with the 25th pick of the 2005 Entry Draft.
Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
