It’s time to bring back to our favorite day, and with feeeeeeeeeling.
Foxy Friday: Andrew Cogliano
From way out west (and arguably the League’s coldest arena), we bring you a guy who knows his way around hockey. Since coming into the NHL in 2007, Andrew has played 459 games. Yes, that’s every single game – 459 straight. We are impressed. And exhausted.
He’s a third-line center with 83 career goals + 195 points. After spending his first few seasons with the Oilers, Andrew almost went to Ottawa in ’09 as part of a Dany Heatley trade that Heatley blocked. Cogliano was dealt to the Ducks in June 2011. That season netted him just 26 P (0.32 PPG), but during last year’s lockout-shortened frame his production increased to 23 P (0.48 PPG).
Andrew looks like the kind of guy with an Italian grandmother that gives the stink eye to all his girlfriends. That did not deter Allie Bertram, his past/maybe present GF who appeared on So You Think You Can Dance Canada (is this a real thing?) and a great episode of our favorite show, Psych. Normally we wouldn’t mention it but we really love Psych.
You also know how we love our hockey players:
From last week in pre-season. The LA Times called it “amazing.”

Friends with Sam Gagner.
Do you think Andrew tried to help Sam re: Hobbit hair?
No really, they love each other. And it’s a major life revelation that, like me, Sam does not drink coffee. I thought I was alone!
(We’ve officially lost Lindsay now.)
He’s friends with Cabbie.
Keeping in shape.
He’s even checking out the merchandise. (There are see-through panels in her pants, it’s not his fault.)
STOP. Is this the other half of this James Neal magazine feature? What the heck is this from?!
And while we’re at it, what is THIS from?
Click for super big photo while we joke that size matters.
Oh, it’s from the 2009 ESPN Body Issue. They get us every time.
Andrew will skate his 460th consecutive game on Saturday when the Ducks face the Wild. Maybe being Foxy Friday will bring him more “amazing” spin-o-rama, fall down goal luck. Take good care of Matty P, Andrew, and make sure no other coaches attack Bruce.Tags: Anaheim Ducks, andrew cogliano
