Ducks sign Cogliano to three-year, $7.17M deal.

If there was still a question as to how much the Ducks liked Andrew Cogliano when they acquired him from Edmonton, the team answered it Tuesday in the form of a three-year, $7.17 million contract.

Cogliano becomes the Ducks’ sixth-highest paid forward in terms of his annual salary-cap hit ($2.39 million). He was scheduled to go to arbitration Thursday and was clearly seeking a substantial raise from the $1 million, one-year deal he signed with Edmonton prior to last season. Cogliano’s new deal pays $2.15 million this season, $2.35 in 2012-13 and $2.67 in 2013-14.

Only forward Bobby Ryan and defenseman Luca Sbisa (both signed through 2014-15) have longer contracts with the Ducks.
