    Former Sharks Iron Man Hangs Up The Skates

    Former San Jose Sharks forward Andrew Cogliano has retired from the NHL after a 17-year career as one of the league's most durable players.

    While Cogliano only played 56 games in Teal, the winger's uncanny ability to stay healthy or overcome injuries is rare in the NHL today.

    The 37-year-old played for five teams, with the Anaheim Ducks being the place he played the most, eight seasons. He signed with the Sharks in 2021 but was dealt to the Colorado Avalanche at the trade deadline. He went on to win his only Stanley Cup that season.

    In his 1,294 regular season games, he only missed 27 games due to injury, which didn't happen until his 10th season in the NHL.

    In 2018, Cogliano was in the middle of an 830-game Iron Man streak. That was abruptly ended due to a suspension.

    The Edmonton Oilers drafted Cogliano 25th overall in 2005. Although he never became a prolific offensive player, he was an effective skater with strong defensive abilities. He set his career high in points in his rookie season with 18 goals and 27 assists. Although he didn't surpass his career-high point total of 45, he set a career-high in goals with 21 during the 2013-14 season.

    The speedy winger now joins the Avalanche front office for his second career in hockey.
