Insider Only NHL: Stars acquire Andrew Cogliano

ANA Receives: F Devin Shore
DAL Receives: F Andrew Cogliano

Trade Buzz: The reeling Ducks continue the process of getting younger upfront with swapping the 31 year old Cogliano for the 24 year old Shore. Shore an aggressive forechecking winger, has 5 goals and 17 points in 42 games, carrying a $2.3 million cap hit through the 2019-2020 season.  For Dallas, they’re getting a faster, better all-around player as of right now in Cogliano, who can play all three forward positions that brings a ton of speed to the lineup and durability. Getting faster was the key to the deal for Dallas. Still, there is some risk. The underlying numbers are good but he’s having a down year with 3 goals in 46 games and Cogliano carries a $3.125 million cap hit through the 2020-2021 season.
