The Dallas Stars have acquired centre Andrew Cogliano from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for forward Devin Shore.

Cogliano, 31, has recorded three goals and eight assists for 11 points in 46 games played for Anaheim this season.

The 12-year veteran has appeared in 912 out of a possible 914 career regular-season games for Edmonton and Anaheim, missing two games due to a suspension in Jan. 2018. He has accumulated 159 goals and 220 assists for 379 points over his career, to date.

"In acquiring Andrew, we are able to add a conscientious player who brings a veteran-presence to our room," said Stars GM Jim Nill. "His explosive speed, 200-foot game and iron-man mentality will help our team both on and off the ice."

Cogliano, a Toronto native, was originally selected by Edmonton in the first round (25th overall) of the 2005 NHL Draft.

Shore, 24, has registered five goals and 12 assists for 17 points in 42 regular-season games for Dallas this season.

In 209 career NHL regular-season games with Dallas, Shore has registered 29 goals and 53 assists for 82 points, to date.

The Ajax, Ontario native was selected by Dallas in the second round (61st overall) of the 2012 NHL Draft.
