Andrew Cogliano Autographed Card

Congratulations are in order for Andrew Cogliano, who suited up in his 800th consecutive NHL game tonight - only the fourth player of all time to reach that milestone, and just the second to do so from his first game onward.

If he makes it another calendar year, he'll surpass Steve Larmer's 884 consecutive games, for third on the all-time list, and if he goes through this year and next without missing a game, he'll just have 15 more to go to beat Doug Jarvis' record of 964, passing having passed Gary Unger's 914 along the way.

No one wants to jinx him, of course, but if he were to do it, it's be poetic justice if the league could make it so that it happens against the team he played his first game (and first four seasons) with, the Edmonton Oilers.

Here he is wearing Edmonton's post-lockout pajama-style white (then-away) uniform, on card #5 from Upper Deck's 2008-09 Trilogy set:
He signed it in blue sharpie around that time, or perhaps in 2009-10, and included his uniform number for good measure, which makes him the second entry for #13 in my Oilers Numbers Project.
