News: Erik Cole was one of the few Stars players with a positive plus/minus at plus-2 in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to Toronto. He added an assist and a shot as well.
Analysis: Erik Cole is basically on the same pace he was last season when he ended with 16 goals and 13 assists. He's at five goals and four assists this season.

Stars' Cole Snaps Slump

News: Erik Cole had an assist, four shots, and a plus-1 rating in Saturday's loss to San Jose.
Analysis: Erik Cole hadn't put up a point in the five previous games and has spent some time on the fourth line, as well as the limping second power play unit. Through 13 games this season, Cole has three goals and two assists.

Cole Snipes Two As Stars Cruise

News: Erik Cole delivered a two-goal performance in Tuesday's win over the Canucks.
Analysis: Held out of the scoring column for his first three games of the season, Erik Cole has now found the net three times on his last four shot attempts. The two tallies gave him his first game with multiple goals since the previous New Year's Eve.

Stars' Cole Back In Saturday

News: Erik Cole (illness) will play Saturday against the Flyers, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Erik Cole was absent from Friday's practice due to an illness, but he confirmed his availability for Saturday's contest by participating in morning skate. Cole was relegated to checking-line duty in the first week of the season after showing up late to a practice, but he seems to be back in the good graces of coach Lindy Ruff. He's since moved back to the second line the last couple of games, but has no points to show for it thus far.

Stars' Cole (Illness) Not Practicing Friday

News: Erik Cole didn't practice Friday due to an illness, Mark Stepinski of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Erik Cole's status has come in to question with the revelation that he is dealing with an illness. Morning skate or pregame warmups should shed some more light on the situation with Cole.

Stars' Cole Returns To Second Line

News: Erik Cole slotted back in as the second-line left wing at Friday's practice.
Analysis: Relegated to checking-line duty in Thursday's opener after he was late for practice earlier in the week, Erik Cole seems to have served his time for the infraction. Cole will more than likely play on the second line Saturday against the Predators, where he'll be joined by Jason Spezza and Ales Hemsky.

Dallas' Cole Scratched In Opener As Punishment

News: Erik Cole will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's season opener due to being late for practice on Monday, according to Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News.
Analysis: This is disappointing news for owners in deep leagues. But there's no indication that any sort of punishment will be ongoing and you can assume he'll be back in the lineup soon.

Erik Cole

Stars Will Scratch Cole Again For Game 5

News: Erik Cole will be a scratch for the third straight game on Friday, according to Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News.
Analysis: Erik Cole struggled through the first two games and the team won their first two without him, so this doesn't come as a surprise. Don't expect to see him in Game 6 if Dallas wins Game 5.

Erik Cole

Stars' Cole A Healthy Scratch For Game 2

News: Erik Cole did not take the ice for pregame warmups Monday and looks like he'll be a healthy scratch for Game 3 against the Ducks, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.
Analysis: Erik Cole hasn't made much of an impact in the first two games of the series, mustering only two shots on goal en route to a minus-2 rating. Coach Lindy Ruff will turn to Chris Mueller to round out his forward ranks as the Stars look to steal Game 3.

Stars' Cole Playing Saturday

News: Erik Cole (upper body) is in Saturday's lineup, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Erik Cole apparently made it through warmups without incident and will thus return to the ice after missing seven games.

Erik Cole

Stars' Cole A True Game-Time Decision

News: Erik Cole (upper body) will take the ice for pregame warmups before a decision is made on his status Saturday, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: It sounds like he'll be a true game-time decision, so fantasy owners may want to avoid the situation, even though Erik Cole is reportedly a pretty good bet to play.

Erik Cole

Stars' Cole Questionable For Saturday

News: Erik Cole (upper body) was a partial participant in practice Friday and is questionable for Saturday's game against Tampa Bay, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.
Analysis: Erik Cole has missed the last seven games but appears to be honing in on a return. With the Stars battling for a wild-card spot, a cautious approach seems unlikely, yet coach Lindy Ruff did not sound particularly optimistic Friday. "That is a tough one. We're hopeful, but I don't know. I don't know," Ruff said of Cole. "He's working hard trying to fight through it, but he hasn't been through a real practice. Today was maybe as close, and that wasn't a real practice. It was a get the hands and feet and get the blood flowing."

Erik Cole

Dallas' Cole Out Tuesday

News: Erik Cole (upper body) will miss another game on Tuesday, but is traveling with the team on their four-game road trip, according to NHL.com's Mark Stepneski.
Analysis: Erik Cole could make an appearance at the tail end of the Stars' East Coast road trip, but is definitely out Tuesday and is unlikely to appear on Thursday.

Erik Cole

Stars' Cole Out Saturday

News: Erik Cole (upper body) will not play in Saturday's game against the Blues, Mike Stepneski of the Stars' official website reports.
Analysis: No surprise here, as Erik Cole has yet to resume practicing. He hasn't been placed on injured reserve but doesn't seem particularly likely to play in the Stars' next game, Tuesday against the Capitals.

Erik Cole

Stars' Cole Ruled Out For Friday

News: Erik Cole (upper body) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Predators, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.

Stars' Cole To Miss Third Straight

News: Erik Cole (upper body) will not play Tuesday against the Blackhawks, the Associated Press reports.
Analysis: Erik Cole will miss his third straight game while he tends to the upper-body injury. Coach Lindy Ruff has yet to issue a timetable for his return to the lineup.

Erik Cole

Stars' Cole Doesn't Skate Sunday

News: Erik Cole (upper-body) did not take part in the Stars' morning skate Sunday, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.
Analysis: Erik Cole was injured Saturday and was going to be evaluated Sunday before making any determinations for a return timetable. The injury was deemed minor, but not participating in the morning skate isn't the best of news. He could just still be sore and could use the day off. The Stars don;t play until Monday anyway. Consider him day-to-day still and expect the team to update his condition soon.

Erik Cole

Stars' Cole Nursing Upper-Body Injury

News: Erik Cole is being held out of Saturday's game vs. the Senators due to an upper-body injury.
Analysis: As suspected, Erik Cole's surprise absence from Saturday's lineup is the result of an injury the team elected not to disclose until game time. The severity of the ailment remains unknown, but we should learn more about his status over the next few days.

Erik Cole

Stars' Cole Day-To-Day

News: Erik Cole (upper body) is day-to-day and will be evaluated Sunday, the Stars' official site reports. "He suffered a little bit of a minor injury in the game," said Stars coach Lindy Ruff. "We didn't know until this morning whether he'd be ready to go and he wasn't able to. We'll get some further tests on him tomorrow. It was kind of the same thing he was hampered with earlier in the year."
Analysis: While the injury doesn't sound too serious, Erik Cole is likely still in danger of missing Monday's game against Winnipeg. Presumably, the injury coach Ruff is referring to was an undisclosed issue back in October that didn't cause Cole to miss any games.

Stars' Cole Likely Out Saturday

News: Erik Cole did not take part in pregame warmups and doesn't look as though he will play Saturday vs. the Senators, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: There was little to suggest that Erik Cole was going to be scratched heading into Saturday, fueling speculation that he was be dealing with some sort of injury. That being said, Cole only has four points in his last 15 contests, so it's possible his absence is due to performance reasons.

Stars' Cole Scores 16th Goal Friday

News: Erik Cole scored his 16th goal of the season during the Stars' 4-3 shootout loss to the Flames on Friday.

Cole Nets Game-Winner For Stars

News: Erik Cole had a goal, the game-winners, and an assist in a close match against Minnesota on Saturday.
Analysis: Erik Cole had 15 goals and 13 assists this season, a far cry from the 30-goal scorer he has been previously. Nonetheless, he's providing some offense and is getting solid powerplay time on a team who has one of the hottest powerplays in the league since the break.

Erik Cole

Stars' Cole Assists In Loss

News: Erik Cole had an assist and three shots in a loss to Columbus on Tuesday.
Analysis: Erik Cole hadn't registered a point in seven games prior to Tuesday. Worse yet, he's gone 12 games without a goal. Not a pretty picture for a forward who scored 35 goals in his last full season. Through 62 games this season he has 14 goals and 12 assists.

Erik Cole

Stars' Cole Not Scoring Like He Used To

News: Erik Cole has 14 goals and 11 assists in 58 games so far this season.
Analysis: The 60-point seasons are most likely behind Erik Cole, as the 35-year-old winger's career starts to wind down. He can still provide some offense, although his minus-11 rating diminishes some of the value he still holds.
