Cogliano Signs 3-Year Extension; Ducks Recall Boll and Kase
By Michael Walters
The Anaheim Ducks announced that Andrew Cogliano signed a three-year extension with the team today.
Cogliano was in the final year of his contract worth $3 million in salary for the 2017-18 season. The new contract extends out to the 2020-21 season. Cogliano will get a slight raise with his new deal being worth $3.25 million each season. There was no signing bonus. He has a full no-trade clause for the remaining of the season. He has a limited no-trade clause(6 teams) for the next three seasons.
Andrew “Ironman” Cogliano started his NHL career in the 2007-08 season with the Edmonton Oilers. He played four seasons with the Oilers before coming to Anaheim in 2011. In July of that year, he was traded to Anaheim for a second-round draft pick in 2013. He has played 328 games in Edmonton and 501 games in Anaheim for a total of 829 games. He is 4th on the all-time ironman list of games played in the NHL. Doug Jarvis still holds the ironman record at 964 games.
Cogliano has 205 total points (93 G + 112 A) in 501 games with the Ducks. He has 18 total points (5 G + 13 A) this season. He has proven to be an effective penalty killer and even has 14 shorthanded goals in just over his last five seasons with Anaheim. He is also a solid defensive player during even strength play. The line combination of Ryan Kesler, Jakob Silfverberg, and Cogliano have answered the bell when they have faced the top lines of opposing teams. He has also averaged 14.7 goals in his previous six seasons with Anaheim. His speed, two-way play, and his defensive responsiveness will continue to be an asset to this team.

Ducks Recall Boll and Kase
The Anaheim Ducks also announced today that Jared Boll and Ondrej Kase have been recalled from San Diego today. Boll has played in only eight games in Anaheim and has one goal on the season. He could be in the lineup tomorrow to add some physical presence against the Kings. Kase has played in 27 games in Anaheim scoring nine goals and he looks to get in the lineup tomorrow after missing a few games with the flu.
