RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013-14

Subscribe now to see our 2013-14 outlook.

2012-13

Cole has seen part-time duty with the Blues, playing 52 games total in his first two years with St. Louis. At some point, we're going to have to find out if Cole is ready for full-time duty on the blue line and that may come this season. The team looked to land a top-four defenseman in free agency, but that never materialized, therefore Cole could get a full-time role. The Blues are in a position to compete for the Western Conference finals and they must be certain Cole is ready for that job. There's some offense to his game, but he'll earn a full-time gig with attention in his own zone.

2011-12

Cole, 21, played most of the season for the AHL Peoria Rivermen, but did make his NHL debut when injuries hit the St. Louis blue line. In 26 games, he registered four points and a plus-6, including a plus-8 in his final 13 games with the Blues. He’ll compete with Nikita Nikitin and Kent Huskins for the final two spots, but the Blues will want him playing every day rather than having him sit around as a seventh defenseman.

2010-11

Cole, 21, got a taste of professional hockey when he joined the Peoria Rivermen of the AHL for the final nine games of their season. He left a good impression in his nine games, which isn't surprising. The Blues felt he was ready for the pro game last year, but he opted for one more year of college. He's got the size to be effective in his own end, but his real skill is in the transition game. Cole could probably use more time in the AHL, but he'll compete for the sixth defenseman job.

2009-10

Cole, 20, will return to Notre Dame for his junior year, but the Blues feel he's ready physically to make the leap to the professional game. He has a reputation as a sturdy defender, good in the corners and in front of the net, but can also rush the puck. He's developed his offensive game in college, scoring 46 points (14, 32) in 81 games with the Irish.

2008-09

Cole will spend 2008-09 as a sophomore at the University of Notre Dame. He is probably at least two seasons away from playing in the NHL.

2007-08

The 18-year old is a stay-at-home defenseman with strong passing skills. He is not expected to crack the Blues' roster for at least a couple of seasons. He will spend at least one more season at the NCAA level, playing for the University of Notre Dame.

2006-07

Cole has a cannon for a shot and plays with moxy. But we're not so sure he'll develop into anything more than a stay-at-home pulverizer. Mind you, he has quick feet, good vision and can make those tasty stretch passes so there's always hope. He's going to need a full four years at college to mature his game.
