DENVER -- Andrew Cogliano had the stick taken out of his hands. His favourite stick.

The one he scored three overtime winners in consecutive games with. Yesterday Cogliano handed over the stick as the Hockey Hall of Fame came asking for it. At the end of the season, he'll be required to turn over his gloves as well.

"Actually I already got a stick in there," Cogliano said prior to last night's game against the Colorado Avalanche.

"The stick that I used at the Under-17s is there. I was the leading scorer in that tournament."

Cogliano, 20, doesn't go through too many sticks during the season and used the same one to score OT winners against the Columbus Blue Jackets, Chicago Blackhawks and St. Louis Blues.

Obviously the Hockey Hall of Fame didn't think he was capable of scoring a fourth-consecutive goal in overtime, asking for the stick after three. They wanted the stick immediately for fear that the Oilers forward might break it if he continued using it.

"It's pretty cool," he said.

"I think it may be a while before that record gets broken. Just a team going into three consecutive overtime games is tough.

"That's going to something that I remember for the rest of my career."
