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.

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 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.

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

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.

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.
Analysis: Erik Cole helped put the Stars up 3-1 in the first period but the team was unable to hold the lead. He now has two goals and two assists over his last five games and has 29 points in 66 games this season.

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.

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.

Stars' Cole Finding Scoring Touch

News: Erik Cole scored two goals in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Kings.
Analysis: That's Erik Cole's second two-goal game in his last three outings, and he's now collected eight points in his last six games -- quite the sudden breakout for the veteran winger after he managed just a dozen points in the season's first 33 contests.

Stars' Cole Lights It Up In Win

News: Erik Cole potted two goals on five shots in Friday's decisive 4-1 win over Nashville.
Analysis: Erik Cole now has eight goals and 17 points in 37 games on the season. He is yet to record a power-play tally though and is minus-6 on the year. Cole plays on the third line in Dallas and sees limited ice time, making it hard to count on him in anything but deep leagues.

Erik Cole

Stars' Cole Has Big Game In Win

News: Erik Cole scored a goal and assisted on two others in the Stars' 4-1 romp over the Canucks on Thursday.
Analysis: The game was tight through two periods with the Stars nursing a one-goal lead, but Erik Cole was able to trickle a shot past goalie Roberto Luongo to give the team some breathing room. His back-handed helper on Valeri Nichushkin's goal later in the period effectively salted the game away, earning Cole the game's first star.

Stars' Cole Assists Twice

News: Erik Cole picked up two assists and went plus-2 in Tuesday's win over the Ducks.
Analysis: After an extended cold streak, the points are starting to come again for Erik Cole, who has a goal and three assists in his last four games. He'd gone eight straight without a point prior to this little run, and at this point in his career, we've come to expect such inconsistency.

Stars' Cole Skates On Top Line, Adds Two Assists

News: Erik Cole skated on the top line and chipped in two assists in Monday's 4-3 win in Buffalo.
Analysis: Erik Cole saw time on the top line earlier this season and throughout the preseason; given the production from the trio of Cole, Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn on Monday, it's a move that will likely stick for at least a game or two.

Erik Cole

Stars' Cole Good To Go For Thursday

News: Erik Cole (undisclosed) is good to go for Thursday's game against the Flames.
Analysis: Erik Cole had been nursing an undisclosed injury in recent days, but it seems that ailment was indeed minor, as he'll be in action against Calgary.

Erik Cole

Stars' Cole Day-To-Day

News: Erik Cole is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury, Mark Stepneski of Stars Inside Edge reports.
Analysis: Until more info comes out on the nature of the injury there won't be an expected return date, but for now it doesn't appear serious. Erik Cole, who sat out of practice Wednesday, has one goal and two assists in eight games so far this season.

Dallas' Cole Gets A Look On Top Line

News: Erik Cole skated on Dallas' top line during Saturday's scrimmage, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Erik Cole skated alongside Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn, so there's obviously a nice boost if Cole can manage to start the season with that duo after entering camp as a third line option on paper.
