Andrew Cogliano chokes up talking about the end of his iron-man streak

An emotional Andrew Cogliano said having his iron-man streak ended by suspension was a tough pill to swallow.

Speaking to Fox Sports Kent French prior to the Anaheim Ducks 3-1 loss against the Colorado Avalanche on Monday, Cogliano choked up when asked about how tough the past 24 hours had been like for him.

Its a tough pill to swallow, Im not going to lie, Cogliano said, fighting back tears. Ive played hard and Ive battled. Im a professional in that Ive played a long time and Ive now missed a game.

Cogliano was suspended Sunday for two games following an illegal check to the head of Los Angeles Kings forward Adrian Kempe in a 4-2 Ducks win on Saturday.

The ban ended the NHLs fourth-longest games played streak at 830 games for Cogliano, who had never missed action in his 11-year NHL career before Monday.

Cogliano was a 134 games shy of Doug Jarvis record of 964 consecutive games played, which the Ducks forward would have reached at the start of the 2019-2020 if he remained healthy.

First and foremost I think, I probably initiated contact too late, Cogliano said. Ive been very open about that with this process, and I made a mistake at that time.
