Stars' Cole Scores For Second Straight Game

News: Erik Cole scored for the second straight game and had an assist in Saturday's loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: With Tyler Seguin (knee) out, Erik Cole has been skating on the top line with Jamie Benn and Jason Spezza. The veteran has recorded at least one point in six of his last seven outings and is now at 17 goals and 31 points in 54 games on the season. Cole is worth looking at while he's on the top line, as he's got 11 goals in his last 19 games and is a key player on a Dallas team that's incurred just two regulation losses in their last seven games.

Stars' Cole Reaches 15 Goals

News: Erik Cole scored with the net empty in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Bruins.
Analysis: The empty-netter counts as Erik Cole's 15th goal this season. With three goals in the past five games, Cole is rounding back into form. An upper-body injury that he sustained in late January appears to be a non-issue based on the fact that he's been averaging 15:05 TOI this month, which is slightly more than his season average (13:56).

Stars' Cole Expected Back Tuesday

News: Erik Cole (upper body) is expected to return to the lineup Tuesday against the Avalanche.
Analysis: Erik Cole was a full participant in the Stars' morning skate Tuesday, working out on the second line with Jason Spezza and Ales Hemsky. The winger missed the previous three games with the injury, but because that trio been clicking prior to his absence, expect Cole to get plenty of an opportunity to reestablish rapport with Hemsky and Spezza.

Erik Cole

Stars' Cole May Return Tuesday

News: Erik Cole (upper body) participated in Monday's practice, and he may return for Tuesday's game against the Avalanche, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Erik Cole is nearing a return, but he remains uncertain for Tuesday night. He's missed each of the last three games.

Erik Cole

Stars' Cole Out Again Saturday

News: Erik Cole (upper body) will not play Saturday against the Jets, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Erik Cole will miss his third straight game due to the injury. He's been able to practice the last few days, so he'll remain in the day-to-day camp for the time being, with a return to action perhaps coming next week.

Stars' Cole (Upper Body) Expected To Sit Thursday

News: Erik Cole (upper body) is expected to sit out Thursday's game against the Senators, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Erik Cole indicated that he felt good after participating in Wednesday's practice, but the Stars will exercise a little precaution and keep him out for a second straight game. In addition to the upper-body injury, he has battled a cold recently, which probably has him running at less-than-optimal health at the moment.

Erik Cole

Stars' Cole Practices Wednesday

News: Erik Cole (upper body) returned to practice on Wednesday and will be a game-time decision on Thursday, according to Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News.
Analysis: Erik Cole left a Jan. 20 game against the Bruins with an injury and hasn't yet returned. He was fortunate that his absence extended over the All-Star break, as it doesn't sound like he'll have to miss much actual game action.

Stars' Cole Out Tuesday

News: Erik Cole (upper body) won't return to the lineup Tuesday against the Canadiels, Mark Stepneski of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Erik Cole wasn't expected to return right after the All-Star break, and that is indeed still the case. His next chance to return will come Thursday against the Senators.

Stars' Cole (Upper Body) To Miss A Period Of Time

News: Erik Cole (upper body) will be out "a period of time" and likely won't be back right away after the All-Star break, the Stars' official site's Mark Stepneski reports.
Analysis: Coach Lindy Ruff intimated that while Erik Cole will have the upcoming All-Star break to rest up after suffering an upper body injury Tuesday, he will still likely need more time to heal. Consider him out indefinitely for now.

Stars' Cole Leaves With Upper-Body Injury

News: Erik Cole suffered an upper-body injury in the first period of Tuesday's game against the Bruins and will not return.
Analysis: Tuesday's game was Dallas' final match before the All-Star break, so Erik Cole will have about a week to recover from the injury. He'll be considered day-to-day until the Stars are able to provide a clearer assessment regarding the extent of his injury.

Stars' Cole Records Two Points In Win

News: Erik Cole scored his 11th goal of the season and had an assist in Saturday's win over Washington.
Analysis: With four multi-point outings in his last seven games, Erik Cole now has 22 points in 42 games on the season. Considering he plays on the second line with Jason Spezza, the 36-year-old is worth looking at, as he's got nine points in his last seven games.

Stars' Cole Returns With Two Points

News: Erik Cole returned from a one-game absence due to an illness with a power-play goal and an even-strength assist in Tuesday's win over the Senators.
Analysis: The goal and assist pushed him to 10 of each on the year. It's not a big total, but he's been productive of late, notching 10 points in his last 10 games -- though half those points came in just two of those games. In leagues that count hits, Erik Cole retains solid value regardless, as he's been a revelation in that category this year, with 99 now in 40 games after he totaled just 89 over 75 games last season.

Stars' Cole (Illness) Expected Back Tuesday

News: Erik Cole (illness) is expected to take the ice Tuesday against Ottawa.
Analysis: Erik Cole sat out Saturday in Colorado due to an illness, but after taking part in Monday's practice, all signs point to him returning to action Tuesday.

Stars' Cole A Late Scratch Saturday

News: Erik Cole was a late scratch for Saturday's game due to an illness, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Erik Cole missed Friday's practice for what was believed to be a therapy day, but it looks like it was the illness that kept him out of action. With the winger unavailable, Travis Moen is expected to join the lineup in his stead, while Shawn Horcoff moves up to claim Cole's spot on the second line.

Stars' Cole Records Three Points In Loss

News: Erik Cole scored a pair of goals, dished out an assist, had five hits, and fired four shots on goal in Sunday's loss to the Blackhawks.
Analysis: That's back-to-back outstanding fantasy outings from Erik Cole, who has put up three goals and seven points in his last five games. He now has 18 points (nine goals) in 37 games, putting him on pace for a 20-goal, 40-point season. Skating on a line with the highly skilled Jason Spezza, Cole is worth a look in deeper formats.

Stars' Cole Scores Shorthanded In Win

News: Erik Cole was a monster Saturday, scoring a shorthanded goal, adding an assist, collecting two PIM, recording a plus-2 rating, and dishing out five hits.
Analysis: Erik Cole now has two goals, five points, and a plus-4 rating in his past six games, putting him at 15 points (seven goals) in 36 games on the season. Skating on the second line with Jason Spezza, the 36-year-old veteran is on track for a 15-goal, 35-point season. He is a solid secondary scorer who can be counted in in deeper formats.

Cole Adds Assist In Stars Win

News: Erik Cole had an assist, a plus-1 rating, and 17:10 of ice time -- his second highest mark of the year -- in a win over the Rangers on Monday.
Analysis: Erik Cole has just six goals and seven assists on the season, but he's had a nice run over recent games, tallying a goal, two assists, and eight shots in the last four games.

Stars' Cole Has Solid Night In Loss

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.

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.
