He formerly played for the Edmonton Oilers and Anaheim Ducks. On December 31, 2013, Cogliano became the 20th player in NHL history to play 500 consecutive games, and only the fifth to do so from the beginning of his NHL career. On November 4, 2017, Cogliano played in his 800th consecutive game, placing him in fourth place on the NHL's most consecutive games played list. The streak ended on January 14, 2018, when Cogliano was suspended for two games.

Cogliano grew up in Woodbridge, Ontario, starting out playing minor ice hockey for the City of Vaughan Hockey Association and the Vaughan Rangers in the Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) before playing in the Greater Toronto Hockey League (GTHL) with the AAA Vaughan Kings. He played in the 2001 Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament with Vaughan.
Cogliano was drafted in the third round, 54th overall, by the Toronto St. Michael's Majors in the 2003 Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Priority Selection. Many believed that Cogliano was the top OHL prospect that year. However, due to his interest in playing collegiate hockey in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), he was drafted much later.
Cogliano spent two seasons with the St. Michael's Buzzers, a Tier 2 Junior "A" Team in Toronto. He was also the League's leading scorer, as well as the only player from the Ontario Junior Hockey League (OJHL) to be selected in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.
Cogliano then moved to the NCAA and played two years for the University of Michigan Wolverines. In 2006–07, he finished third on the Wolverines in scoring with 50 points in 38 games and again won gold with Canada at the 2007 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships in Sweden. He signed a professional contract on May 2, 2007, with the Edmonton Oilers, the team which drafted him 25th overall in 2005.
Leading up to the 2007–08 season, Cogliano had a strong training camp and made the Oilers' opening night roster. He played his first NHL game on October 4, 2007, against the San Jose Sharks, recording one assist. He scored his first NHL goal on October 8, 2007, against the Detroit Red Wings, beating All-Star goaltender Dominik Hašek.
On March 7, 9 and 11, 2008, Cogliano set an NHL record by scoring overtime goals in three consecutive games against the Columbus Blue Jackets, Chicago Blackhawks and St. Louis Blues, respectively. His stick and gloves were subsequently sent to the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Cogliano would play in all 82 of Edmonton's games during his rookie season, leading the team in appearances. He would score 45 points (18 goals and 27 assists), leading the Oilers with five game-winning goals while recording the team's highest shooting percentage at 18.4%.
In his second NHL season, his statistics declined slightly, along with fellow Oilers sophomore Sam Gagner. Cogliano posted 38 points (18 goals and 20 assists) while again playing in all 82 of his team's games. That season, Cogliano was invited to participate in the NHL YoungStars Game during the All-Star weekend in Montreal, playing for the Sophomores team. Cogliano also participated in and won the "Fastest Skater" competition during the SuperSkills event, clocking in at a time of 14.31 seconds.
In June 2009, Cogliano was confirmed to be a part of a planned blockbuster trade that would include Ladislav Šmíd and Dustin Penner being sent to the Ottawa Senators in exchange for the disgruntled All-Star forward Dany Heatley. However, Heatley ultimately exercised the no-trade clause in his contract and the deal did not materialize. Heatley would shortly after accept a trade to the San Jose Sharks instead, and Cogliano remained an Oiler.
The subsequent 2009–10 season was a difficult one for Cogliano, as his offensive production again declined and his team struggled. He would finish with 28 points (10 goals and 18 assists) in 82 games, and the Oilers finished last overall in the NHL. He was tried at all three forward positions during the season.
By the end of the 2010–11 season, Cogliano was the only Oiler who played in all 82 games, and was fifth in team scoring, with 35 points.
In his second year with Anaheim, and his sixth season overall in the NHL, Cogliano made his debut in the Stanley Cup playoffs, where the Ducks, as the second seed in the Western Conference, were eliminated in the first round by the seventh-seeded Detroit Red Wings in seven games.
During the 2013–14 season, Cogliano played his 500th consecutive game in a home game against the San Jose Sharks on New Year's Eve. He became the 20th player in NHL history to reach that milestone, and only the fifth to do so from the beginning of his career. On January 25, playing in Dodger Stadium against the Los Angeles Kings in a NHL Stadium Series game, Cogliano scored into an empty net for the 100th goal of his NHL career. He finished the season with 21 goals, setting a new career high. It was his first season with 20 or more goals. In the playoffs, he scored his first-ever playoff goal against the Dallas Stars.
During the 2014–15 season, Cogliano was entrusted on the Ducks powerplay unit. Cogliano's efforts helped push the Chicago Blackhawks to 7 games before the Ducks were eliminated from the playoffs. At the end of the season, he was nominated for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy for the second time. It was eventually awarded to Minnesota Wild's Devan Dubnyk.
The 2015–16 season was disappointing for Cogliano, who had recorded double digits in goals every year except for that season. Despite his slide in goals, he played on a line along with Ryan Kesler and Jakob Silfverberg, whose "shutdown" play helped the team reach the playoffs for the fourth consecutive year. Cogliano ended the season leading the Ducks in shorthanded goals and points and finishing second among Ducks forwards in hits. He was again nominated for the Bill Masterton Trophy at the end of the season, with the award eventually going to Jaromír Jágr of the Florida Panthers.
During the 2016–17 season, Cogliano was again paired with Kesler and Silfverberg to lead the team's "shutdown" line. On March 22, 2017, Cogliano played in his 777th consecutive hockey game, surpassing Craig Ramsay for the fourth-longest playing streak in NHL history. He again helped lead the Ducks to a playoff contention, playing in all 17 games against the Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers and Nashville Predators. At the end of the season, Cogliano was nominated for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy for the fourth time in his career. The award eventually went to Ottawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson.
During the 2017–18 season, on January 12, 2018, the Ducks re-signed Cogliano to a three-year, $9.75 million contract extension. On January 13, 2018, Cogliano was issued an interference penalty for a hit on Kings' forward Adrian Kempe. After a hearing with NHL's Department of Player Safety, Cogliano was given a two-game suspension. With this, Cogliano's "iron man" streak of 830 consecutive games played ended, which was the longest active streak at the time.
In his final season with the St. Michael's Buzzers, Cogliano represented Canada at the 2004 World U-17 Hockey Challenge, where he led the team in scoring. He sent the stick he used in the tournament to the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Cogliano grew up in Woodbridge, Ontario. He has a brother, Matthew, who is an elementary school teacher.

The 2009–10 Edmonton Oilers season was the team's 38th season of play, 31st as a member of the National Hockey League (NHL). The 2009–10 season was one of the worst in franchise history, where the Oilers finished dead last in the NHL (30th out of 30 teams). The team finished with 62 points, which was the second-lowest point total in franchise history (the lowest point total was 60 points obtained back in 1992–93). However, despite the misery endured that season, the Oilers were compensated on April 13, 2010, when they won the 2010 NHL Draft Lottery to pick first overall for the first time in franchise history.

Their first game of the season was held on October 7, 2011, against the Buffalo Sabres in Helsinki, Finland. The Ducks had a disappointing season compared to 2010–11, struggling in the first half of the season and digging a hole that was too deep to climb out of despite a second-half resurgence. 2011–12 marked the second playoff miss for the Ducks in three seasons. The Ducks ultimately finished the season in 13th place in the Western Conference and with a mediocre 34–36–12 record.2012–13 Anaheim Ducks season

The 2012–13 campaign for the Ducks commenced as a shortened, 48-game season, beginning January 19 on the road against the Vancouver Canucks. The shortened season featured only intra-conference games. The Ducks compensated for a disappointing season in 2011–12, wherein they struggled in the first half of the season and dug a hole that was too deep to climb out of despite a second-half resurgence. The previous season marked the second time in their last three seasons that the Ducks missed the playoffs.
Despite amassing a 30–12–6 regular season record, finishing second place in the Western Conference, and winning the Pacific Division for the second time in franchise history, the Ducks disappointed in the playoffs, falling to their long-time post-season enemy Detroit Red Wings, 4–3.

For ice hockey players in the National Hockey League (NHL), playing 500 consecutive regular season games is considered a highly significant achievement.
This is often referred to as an "Iron man streak".
As of the completion of the 2017–18 NHL season — the 100th regular season of play of the National Hockey League — a total of 27 different players had played at least 500 consecutive regular season games in their NHL career — making it one of the most exclusive 500-clubs in the NHL.
The first player to play 500 consecutive games was Murray Murdoch of the New York Rangers, who played his 500th consecutive game during the 1936–37 season, the 20th season of the NHL. Doug Jarvis currently holds the record for most consecutive games played with 964, never missing a regular season game in his NHL career. Glenn Hall is the only goaltender to play 500 or more consecutive games.
Steve Larmer's streak ended in 1994 due to a contract dispute. Along with former record holder Johnny Wilson, they are the only two players on the list who had their streaks end due to financial reasons. Henrik Sedin's active streak of 679 consecutive games played ended on January 21, 2014 when he was unable to play due to injuries. Jay Bouwmeester's ended at 737 on November 23, 2014 due to an injury in the previous game. Andrew Cogliano's run ended at 830 on January 14, 2018 because of a controversial two game suspension. If the suspension is overturned at any point, the streak was at 927 games at the time of his injury (not counting the 2 games missed to suspension). Karl Alzner's ended after he was a healthy scratch.There are currently three players with active streaks: Keith Yandle, Patrick Marleau, and Phil Kessel. Providing that the length of schedule does not change and there are no further work stoppages, all three players could possibly pass Jarvis' record during the 2021-22 season with Yandle having a chance to tie the record on game three of the season.List of people from Vaughan

All but Primeau was born in Toronto but they all grew up in the city.
Maple Leafs coach Conn Smythe, put the line together, and it helped the Maple Leafs win the 1932 Stanley Cup and lead the Leafs to four more Stanley Cup finals appearances over the next six years. This original line has been featured in a children's book called The Kid Line.The title was reused as a reference to the Adam Graves, Joe Murphy, and Martin Gelinas lines of the 1990s Edmonton Oilers, and resurrected for Sam Gagner, Andrew Cogliano, and Robert Nilsson starting in 2007-08.More recently, the title have been used as a reference to other lines, like the Edmonton Oilers - Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle, starting in 2011-12.
and the Montreal Canadiens - Alex Galchenyuk, Lars Eller and Brendan Gallagher starting in 2013-14., the New York islanders - Brock Nelson, Ryan Strome, and Anders Lee
