The San Jose Sharks have traded forward Andrew Cogliano to the Colorado Avalanche for a 2024 fifth-round pick.
Cogliano, 34, quietly became a popular trade target over the past few hours due to his speed and veteran presence. Cogliano has four goals and 15 points in 56 games for the San Jose Sharks. A first-round pick in 2005, Cogliano had 18 goals and 45 points as a rookie in 2007-08, the highest output of his career.
The Avalanche added Artturi Lehkonen earlier in the day to help address scoring depth. With Cogliano in the fold, the team has even more options to choose from.
