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.

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.

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.

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."

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.

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.

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.
