The Anaheim Ducks have signed forward Andrew Cogliano to a three-year, $7.17 million contract.

Acquired from Edmonton in exchange for a second-round pick earlier this month, the 24-year-old appeared in 82 games for the Oilers last season, collecting 11 goals and 24 assists with 64 penalty minutes. Cogliano has not missed a game since making his NHL debut in 2007-08, appearing in all 82 games in each of his four NHL seasons.

The Toronto, ON, native has appeared in 328 career NHL games, scoring 57 goals and 89 assists with 137 PIM. He set career highs in goals, assists and points during his rookie season in 2007-08 and matched his career high in goals the following season.

Originally selected by the Oilers in the first round (25th overall) of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, Cogliano played two seasons with the University of Michigan prior to the NHL.

Cogliano is also a two-time goal-medal winner at the World Junior Championship, representing Team Canada at the 2006 World Juniors in Vancouver and the 2007 tournament in Sweden.
