DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - With the Stars offense needing a jolt, general manager Jim Nill has made a move to mix things up. 

Dallas acquired Anaheim Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano in exchange for forward Devin Shore Monday morning

Cogliano, 31, has recorded 11 points in 46 games with Anaheim this season. The 12-year veteran has appeared in 912 out of 914 career regular season games for Edmonton and Anaheim. Cogliano missed the two games last season due to a suspension. 

For his career, he has 159 goals and 220 assists. He has a career +39 plus/minus rating, and he has finished the last six seasons with a positive plus/minus total as he is a +63 over those years. Additionally, he has compiled 25 points in 64 Stanley Cup Playoff contests, with his team qualifying in each of the last six seasons.

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

The 5-foot-10, 177-pound native of Toronto, Ontario was originally selected by Edmonton in the first round (25th overall) of the 2005 NHL Draft. He was acquired by Anaheim from Edmonton in exchange for a second-round selection in the 2013 NHL Draft on July 12, 2011.

Shore, 24, has registered 17 points in 42 regular-season games for Dallas this season. In parts of four seasons with Dallas, he totaled 82 points in 209 games played.

The 6-foot-1, 205-pound native of Ajax, Ontario was originally selected by Dallas in the second round (61st overall) of the 2012 NHL Draft.
