News: The Bruins have acquired Cohen from the Avalanche in exchange for Matt Hunwick, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Cohen, who will be assigned to AHL Providence, has good size and could grow into an offensive blueliner for the B's, in time. In the short term, the deal clears Hunwick's salary off the books (the B's need some cap space) while bolstering the team's young talent base.
News: Cohen was returned to AHL Lake Erie on Sunday, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: With the recent return to the lineup of fellow d-men Adam Foote (concussion) and Ryan Wilson (leg), the Avs decided to reassign Cohen, who had also been dealing with a minor illness of his own prior to the demotion. He likely will not be back in an Avs uniform any time soon unless the team runs into more injury trouble.
News: Cohen (illness) did not dress for Saturday's game against Detroit.
Analysis: Cohen, who had to go to the dressing room in the third period against Columbus on Friday, didn't take the pre-game warmup against the Wings and sat out the game. There is still no word on the exact nature of his illness - consider him day-to-day for now.
News: Cohen sat out most of the third period of Friday's game against Columbus with illness, but should be available for Saturday's matchup against Detroit, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: There's no exact word on the nature of the illness, though Cohen did miss practice earlier in the week with a cold. Either way, don't be surprised if coach Joe Sacco keeps him out of Saturday's lineup and inserts David Liffiton. For fantasy purposes, you might want to use another d-man option instead.
News: Cohen skipped practice Wednesday due to a bad cold, the Canadian Press reports.
Analysis: The Avs are off until Friday, so we assume Cohen will be fine. And with so many other regulars on the shelf, he may have to play through whatever's ailing him anyway.
News: Cohen will make his NHL debut Saturday against the Stars, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: After three seasons at Boston University during which time he tallied 78 points in 118 games, Cohen is off to a slow start in the AHL this season with just one goal in 11 games. He's worth keeping an eye on, but don't expect fireworks from him right out of the gate.
News: Cohen was recalled from AHL Lake Erie on Friday, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Cohen will likely fill in for fellow d-man Ryan Wilson who is out with a leg injury. Cohen has good offensive abilities and can man the power play, so keep an eye on his minutes and his production - he may turn out to be fantasy-worthy in deeper leagues.
