    Cole snapped a 14-game point drought with the secondary helper on Sam Lafferty's first-period tally.

  • Canucks' Ian Cole: Logging heavy minutes

    Cole is averaging 22:45 of ice time through his first three games with Vancouver.

    Cole has never averaged more than 20 minutes a night across an entire season. While it's still early, he could set a new career high in playing time this year due to the Canucks' lack of depth on the blue line. Cole isn't typically a great fantasy producer but the extra ice time could help expand his totals from last year of 17 points, 117 hits and 123 blocks.

  • Canucks' Ian Cole: Joining Vancouver

    Cole signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the Canucks on Saturday.

    Cole tallied three goals and 17 points in 78 games with Tampa Bay last season. The 34-year-old blueliner doesn't offer much upside for fantasy purposes, though he should provide some stability to Vancouver's defensive corps.

  • Lightning's Ian Cole: Third assist in 34 games

    Cole picked up an assist Saturday in a 5-0 win over the Islanders.

    Cole has three assists in his last 34 games, so you'll never mistake him for an offensive wizard. He logs a lot of ice time (20:07) and is the go-to Bolts' defender on the penalty kill (2:59).

  • Lightning's Ian Cole: Better on ice than in fantasy arena

    Cole has one assist, 12 blocks, 12 shots and seven hits in his last 10 games.

  • Lightning's Ian Cole: Pitching in hits and blocks

    He has 13 points (three goals, 10 assists) in 36 games this season, while averaging 19:08. Cole is not known for his scoring touch, but he munches minutes and provides support in peripheral categories. His average ice time hasn't been this high since 2018-19 when he was in Colorado.

  • Lightning's Ian Cole: Opens Tuesday's scoring

    Cole scored a goal during a 6-2 victory over the visiting Kraken on Tuesday.

    Cole, who notched his first goal in five games Tuesday, ignited the Lightning's offense with a shot from the point that beat screened goalie Philipp Grubauer.

  • Lightning's Ian Cole: Two-point game in win

    Cole scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's 4-1 win over Philadelphia.

    His goal was a Sports Centre highlight -- he wired a shot off the end boards that bounced off and got into Carter Hart's skates and into the net. But Cole's assist will stay in his memory. He got a helper on the play that Steven Stamkos set a franchise record as the first Bolt to reach 1,000 points.

  • Lightning's Ian Cole: Quietly chewing up ice time

    Cole has one assist and is averaging 18:33 a game in nine contests this season.

    He's also delivered 15 blocks, 13 shots, 12 hits and eight PIM. The hits and blocks help the Bolts on the ice, but Cole does little to support fantasy teams. Gone are the days of 25-plus points, 160-plus hits and close to 200 blocks.

  • Lightning's Ian Cole: Debuts after suspension lifted

  • Lightning's Ian Cole: Suspended by team

    The Lightning have suspended Cole while the team investigates allegations of sexual abuse against him, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

  • Lightning's Ian Cole: Snags one-year pact

    Cole signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Lightning on Wednesday, Adrian Dater of reports.

    Cole is fresh off having knocked off the Lightning in the Stanley Cup Finals but will move to join his recently defeated foes for the upcoming season. Considering the defenseman has reached the 20-point threshold just once in the last four years, fantasy players shouldn't be banking on him producing at a high level even within Tampa Bay's potent offense.
