His three overtime goals tied him for the NHL record for most overtime goals in a season by an NHL rookie, sharing the mark with Ryan Malone (2003-04) and Sidney Crosby (2005-06). <br /> <br /> He played with YoungStar sophomore teammates Marc Staal and Kris Letang on Canada's gold medal winners at the 2006 and 2007 World Junior Championships, serving as captain in 2007. <br /> <br /> <a name="he"></a><b>HE SAID IT</b><br /> On his style of play: &quot;My game is pretty easy; guys know what I'm going to do. I'm going to use speed and go wide and play hard. I think I can fit on pretty much every line. It's good for me to know that I can be used in different situations.&quot; <br /> <br /> <a name="they"></a><b>THEY SAID IT</b><br /> Edmonton Head Coach Craig MacTavish: &quot;His game has really come a long way, especially his play with the puck. When he's transporting the puck he very rarely makes a mistake. Last year he used to take it into traffic a little bit. This year he's a handful one-on-one for the defenders. He has a nose for the net and he's not afraid to get there.&quot; <br /> <br /> Chicago captain Jonathan Toews: &quot;(Cogliano) represents the new NHL. He's so fast. He's exciting to watch; he's going to get his points.&quot; <br /> <br /> <a name="news"></a><b>IN THE NEWS</b><br /> <a href="http://www.edmontonsun.com/Sports/Oilers/2009/01/07/7941311-sun.html">Cogs Finds Another Gear</a><br /> <br /> <a name="video"></a><b>VIDEO FEATURES</b><br /> <a href="http://oilers.nhl.tv/team/console.jsp?&amp;id=29878">CBC: After Hours</a><br /> <a href="http://oilers.nhl.tv/team/console.jsp?&amp;id=22015">OilersTV: Cogliano Profile</a><br /> <br />
Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
