Andrew Cogliano knew something was brewing when he got up Monday morning to see that he had a call from Anaheim GM Bob Murray on his phone.
"He wasn't calling to say good game last night," Cogliano said.
The Ducks had lost their 11th straight game in Winnipeg the night before, and Cogliano had the sense with the team mired in a long losing streak changes were on the horizon. And Monday, the Ducks did make a change, dealing Cogliano to Dallas in exchange for forward Devin Shore.
"I think I could have used the change to be honest," Cogliano said. "It was a situation in Anaheim where you kind of feel it a little bit, we were losing a bunch of games and it was a situation where guys were going to be moved. I was the first."
