FRISCO, Texas -- Dallas Stars forward Andrew Cogliano became the 348th player in NHL history to reach the 1,000 regular-season games played-mark with tonight's appearance against the Toronto Maple Leafs. He is the 231st forward to reach the League-recognized milestone, while he is also one of just 30 active NHL players to do so. His achievement will be recognized with a pre-game ceremony prior to the Stars game against the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday, Feb. 23.
"Andrew's preparation, discipline and approach to the game each and every day have made him one of the most well-respected teammates in the League," said Stars General Manager Jim Nill. "Reaching the 1,000-game milestone is not only a testament to his commitment, but also speaks to his resiliency and toughness. The Stars organization would like to congratulate Andrew, his wife Allie and daughter Lottie."
In his 13th NHL season, Cogliano, 32, has now appeared in 88 games in his second season for Dallas, 584 games in eight seasons with Anaheim, and 328 games in four seasons in Edmonton. Entering play tonight, his teams have posted a record of 502-375-122 with him in the lineup.
He has posted 396 regular-season points (164-232=396) in his career and his 19 shorthanded goals since entering the NHL in 2007-08 are seventh-most in the League. He has finished with a plus-rating in each of the last seven seasons, posting a +65 rating since the start of the 2012-13 campaign.

Cogliano has appeared in 1,000 out of a possible 1,007 regular-season games. Prior to joining the Stars, the forward had only missed two NHL contests in his entire career due to a two-game suspension (Jan. 15-17, 2018). His iron-man streak spanned the first 830 games of his career (Oct. 4, 2007 - Jan. 13, 2018) and stands as the seventh-longest games-played streak in NHL history.
He has compiled 27 points (10-17=27) in 77 Stanley Cup Playoff contests and is one of 15 active players to have qualified for the Stanley Cup Playoffs in each of the last seven seasons. Additionally, the forward is one of only three NHL players to have recorded a goal in each of last six postseasons.
The 5-foot-10, 175-pound native of Toronto, Ontario was acquired by Dallas via trade from Anaheim on Jan. 14, 2019 in exchange for forward Devin Shore. He was originally selected by Edmonton in the first round (25th overall) of the 2005 NHL Draft. Cogliano was acquired by Anaheim via trade from Edmonton on July 12, 2011 in exchange for a second-round selection in the 2013 NHL Draft.
