FRISCO, Texas — The Dallas Stars have acquired Andrew Cogliano from the Anaheim Ducks for former University of Maine standout Devin Shore in a trade that gives Dallas more experience at forward.
The 31-year-old Cogliano has 11 points (three goals, eight assists) in 46 games this season. The durable 12-year veteran is among the NHL leaders with 19 short-handed goals since entering the NHL in 2007-08.
Cogliano has missed just two of 914 games in his career. Both were because of a suspension last January. Cogliano has 379 career points, with 159 goals and 379 assists.
The 24-year-old Shore has 17 points (five goals, 12 assists) in 42 games. He has 82 points (29 goals, 53 assists) in 209 games over parts of four seasons with the Stars.
Shore was drafted in the second round by Dallas in 2012 and played three seasons at UMaine before leaving in March 2015. He is tied for 51st on the school’s all-time scoring list with 104 points in 112 games.
Shore had been among three former Black Bears with Dallas, which is home to head coach Jim Montgomery and goaltender Ben Bishop.
Shore grew into an NHL regular while playing multiple roles with the Stars, from shutdown defender to top-line forward. He has just one assist in his last 15 games, and he was on an eight-game scoreless streak before the trade.
“This became available, and this is who we were trying to get,” Ducks general manager Bob Murray said.
