Andrew Cogliano Will Stay With the Anaheim Ducks

The Anaheim Ducks and Andrew Cogliano have reached an agreement. Cogliano will stay with the Ducks for the next four years. The deal has been reported to be worth $12 million.

Cogliano is having a career year; he has 13 goals and 12 assists and a plus-16 rating in 43 games. In a report on ESPN.go.com Cogliano has said he had “no desire to test the free agent market NHL: Anaheim Ducks Andrew Cogliano Mandatory Credit: Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sportsat the risk of disrupting a good situation in Anaheim.” His new deal will keep the 26-year-old out west until the end of the 2017-2018 season.

You could always test free agency, and there might be better deals out there, but at the end of the day, Anaheim was the play I wanted to be. They were the team that traded for me from Edmonton and believed in me and gave me a good situation here. Whenever a team trades for you, and shows faith in you, the right thing to do is make it work, and find a contract to stay. Ducks.NHL.com

The Anaheim Ducks are currently sitting in 2st place in the NHL, and 1st place in the Pacific Division.
