Cogliano scored the Ducks only goal in a 4-1 loss to the Kings on Saturday. Cogs now has a goal in each of his last two games and four in his last eight. His 14 goals are good enough for fourth on the Quacks. Cogliano, who turns 30 in the offseason, is a sturdy complementary player who steadily supplies 30-40 points a season.
Cogliano picked up a shorthanded goal in Friday's 4-1 loss against the Ducks. Cogliano has played in 763 straight games, most among active players. The durable veteran has managed two goals with four points over the past five games, making him worth a roster spot in most fantasy pools of 12 or more teams.
Cogliano failed to register a point for the sixth consecutive game during Monday's win over Winnipeg. At this stage of his career, the 29-year-old speedster shouldn't be confused with a reliable fantasy asset, and his 10 goals and 21 points through 50 games this season actually represent one of his better offensive showings. Additionally, he's averaged just five seconds of power-play time this season and has started just 44.5 percent of his five-on-five shifts in the offensive zone. It isn't a strong fantasy setup for Cogliano, and his upside is capped as a result.
Cogliano provided the lone goal for the Ducks on Tuesday in a 5-1 road loss to the Canadiens. As noted by NHL.com, this was the winger's 738th consecutive game played, representing the fifth-longest streak in NHL history. It's unfortunate that Cogliano will associate the impressive milestone with a crushing road loss, but his fantasy owners must've been happy that he found twine despite the overall lackluster effort from the team. He's averaging a half-point per contest to complement a plus-6 rating, making him a sound choice for conservative fantasy owners that don't like surprises in the fantasy realm.
Cogliano's eighth goal of the season Thursday against Boston helped lift the Ducks to a 4-3 win. The NHL's active iron man with 735 consecutive games played and counting, Cogliano now has three goals in his past eight games and 15 points in 31 games on the season. A career checking-line forward, Cogliano is known for his consistency and ability to disrupt plays with his speed, but he's also having one of the best statistical seasons of his career. He's on pace for 40 points, a total he's surpassed just twice, and also with an outside chance at 20 goals, a feat he's accomplished just once. If his production was a little higher he'd have some fantasy value, otherwise he's best left on the waiver wire.
