  • Penguins' Ian Cole: Returning to action Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/17/17) Cole (mouth) will be in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rangers.

    The 28-year-old blueliner, who has missed Pittsburgh's last three games due to a mouth injury, will skate with Justin Schultz on the Penguins' second pairing Tuesday evening. He'll look to pick up his first point of the campaign in a matchup with a Rangers team that's allowing 3.50 goals per game this season, 10th in the NHL.

    Penguins' Ian Cole: Available Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/17/17) Cole (mouth) has been medically cleared to play against the Rangers on Tuesday.

    Coach Mike Sullivan was only willing to go so far as to say Cole was healthy enough to play, but wouldn't confirm the 28-year-old was going to return to the lineup. While Sullivan is trying to be coy about his blue line, the effect was ruined by the fact that Matt Hunwick (undisclosed) is listed on injured reserve per the NHL media site. Cole is unlikely to be held out of the lineup in favor of Chris Summers -- who hasn't played an NHL game since 2015-16 -- but fantasy owners will want to check back when the teams hit the ice for warmups.

    Penguins' Ian Cole: Game-time decision against Rangers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/16/17) Cole (mouth) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's matchup with New York, Sam Kasan of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

    Cole missed three games -- one for every tooth lost -- after taking a puck to the face against Nashville on Oct. 7. The blueliner has yet to get on the scoresheet this season, making his 26-point 2016-17 campaign look like more of an exception rather than the rule. If the 28-year-old is given the all-clear, Chris Summers will likely head back to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and Chad Ruhwedel figures to move up to the press box.

    Penguins' Ian Cole: Lands on IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/10/17) The Penguins placed Cole (mouth) on injured reserve Tuesday.

    Cole suffered a grisly mouth injury when he took a puck to the face during Saturday's game against the Predators, so it's not surprising that the shot-blocking extraordinaire will require at least one more week to recover before returning to Pittsburgh's lineup. Chris Summers was recalled in a corresponding move Tuesday to serve as the Penguins' seventh defenseman while Cole is on the shelf.

    Penguins' Ian Cole: Won't play against Washington

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/9/17) Cole (mouth) will not be in the lineup versus the Capitals on Wednesday, Sam Kasan of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

    Despite losing a few teeth and a piece of his jaw, Cole has not been ruled out for Thursday's clash with the Lightning. More likely than not, the defenseman will be facing a pain tolerance question and could further protect his mouth by wearing a face shield or full cage whenever he returns to action. Until given the all-clear to return, the 28-year-old will be replaced on the blue line by Chad Ruhwedel.
